ORAC Scale - Oxygen Radical Absorbing Capacity
By the age of 40 our natural antioxidant level had decreased 50%. By the age of 60 - 70, levels drop to approximately 5 - 10%. Decreases may be directly caused by the effects of FREE RADICALS.
ANTIOXIDANTS are molecules which can safely neutralize free radicals and help stop the chain reaction before damage is done. Antioxidants are armed with extra electrons that can be passed on to free radicals to help neutralize and eliminate their harmful effects.
