High Potency Antioxidant/6000 ORAC Value
BerryRich Super Strength Berry Blend Concentrate by Natural Factors
Cellular changes caused by free radical damage are a main factor in aging and have been linked to virtually every chronic degenerative disease including heart disease, arthritis and cancer. Getting adequate antioxidant protection from food is essential to defend ourselves against the harmful effects of free radicals. There are many categories of antioxidants and researchers often measure their activity as Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, or ORAC value. The average North American gets less than 1,000 ORAC units per day. Eating the recommended “five-a-day” servings of fruit and vegetables will give you about 1,750 ORAC "units", however experts suggest we consume 3, 000 to 5,000 ORAC units daily! Studies show that eating plenty of high-ORAC foods:raises your blood's antioxidant power up to 25 percentprevents some loss of long-term memory and learning abilityhelps maintains brain cell functions that normally decrease with ageprotects capillaries against oxygen damage
In 2004 nutritional scientists published an updated list of ORAC values for over 100 common foods. Among the top 10 were blueberry, raspberry, cranberry and strawberry. Other nutritional superstars include red grape and pomegranate. Combinations of nutrients seem to have greater protective effects than each nutrient taken alone.
