Antioxidants – the way to a healthy life!
Antioxidants are substances that neutralize the damaging free radicals in our bodies and may prevent several diseases and unnecessary aging. Antioxidants can be measured in ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) units, a system developed by scientists at the US National Institutes of Health. It is believed that foods with higher ORAC value more effectively neutralize free radicals.
“The amount of antioxidants that you maintain in your body is directly proportional to how long and healthy you will live.”
