The term ORAC means Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity. The ORAC scale was developed in order to classify foods richest in antioxidants. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the level of antioxidants in the food.
What do antioxidants do?
Antioxidants are molecules that scavenge the body for free radicals, removing them from your system. They actually inhibit the oxidation process in other molecules.
What does oxidation and free radicals do to my body?
Oxidation is a process that produces free radicals. Free radicals are like toxic waste in your body that ravage healthy cells. As free radicals that your body is unable to clean are left to destroy healthy cells in your body, a process associated with both cancer and aging.
How can I help my body fight against free radicals?
Your body needs antioxidants to fight and clean out the free radicals from your body. Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals and allow your body to safely remove them from your system. If your body does not have enough antioxidants in its system, it cannot neutralize the free radicals, and the toxic molecules are free to damage and kill cells in your body.
The USDA recommends that people consume at minimum 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units a day. Additional studies show, however, that as we grow older, the oxidation process speeds up in our system, making more free radicals that when we were younger. Making sure your body has enough antioxidants to continue to fight the onslaught of these free radicals can keep your cells healthier for longer, while low levels of antioxidants in your body cause oxidative stress and may damage or kill cells.
