What is ORAC?

Written by 

ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It was developed by the National Institute on Aging by the National Institutes of Health. It is a standardized method of measuring the antioxidant capacity of special foods and supplements. The higher the antioxidant value of a food, the higher the ORAC score will be, and the more effective a food is at combating free radicals. The less free radicals you have, the healthier you will be. It may even help prevent heart disease and diabetes. It might even help reduce some wrinkling!
