ORAC+ for Anti-aging
Use ORAC+ daily to reverse cellular damage
Free radicals are molecules which harm healthy body cells. The accumulated damage caused by free radicals is considered a primary cause of the aging process. You can dramatically slow-down this aging process (anti-aging) by combatting free radical activity with anti-oxidants.
Extraordinary scientific research from Tufts University has evaluated the antioxidant needs of the average person PLUS the antioxidant power (referred to as Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity or ORAC Value) of fruits and vegetables. Their research has concluded that we need approximately 5,000 ORAC Units per day to have a significant impact on plasma and tissue antioxidant capacity. Consumption of a minimum of three servings of fruits and vegetables per day provides approximately 1200 ORAC Units. This means the average person is short approximately 3800 ORAC Units each day, depending on the fruits and vegetables they are choosing.
ORAC+ fills the gap to “mop-up” all the body’s free radical generation on a daily basis to slow the aging process (anti-aging).
ORAC+ has been independently tested by one of the world’s foremost laboratories specializing in Oxygen Radical Absorbing Capacity (ORAC). Oxygen Radical Absorbence Capacity (ORAC) measures the total “Antioxidant Power” of foods and nutrients by calculating the ability of a product to protect against potentially damaging oxygen free radicals.Serving size: 1 heaping teaspoon (5 grams) provides more than 4400 ORAC value.

Oxygen Radical Absorbence Capacity (ORAC)
ORAC is an exciting and revolutionary new test tube analysis that can be utilized to test "Antioxident Power" of foods and other chemical substances. It calculates the ability of a product or chemical to protect against potentially damaging free radicals.
This analytical procedure measures the ability of a food, vitamin, nutritional supplement, or other chemical to protect against the attack by free radicals, or to act as an Antioxidant. The test is performed using Trolox (a water-soluble analog of Vitamin E) as a standard to determine the Trolox Equivalent (TE).
The ORAC value is then calculated from the Trolox Equivalent and expressed as ORAC units or value. The higher the ORAC value, the greater the "Antioxidant Power".
