The ORAC Diet
Add Years to Your Life and Life to Your Years
The ORAC Diet is a delicious way of eating, a natural path to health and vitality
It is simple: every one can slow down and may even reverse many of the body’s natural ageing processes, and not only feel and look better, but gain enormous protection against the scourges of modern degenerative diseases. All one has to do is eat more foods rich in dark blue colour pigments, the antioxidants that have a high ORAC rating.
ORAC – Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity
The US Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center on Ageing (HNRCA) at Tufts University (Boston) has been studying the antioxidant properties of whole foods. They set out to measure the total antioxidant power of individual foods; and established the Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity – the ORAC score – a measure of each food’s ability to neutralize free radicals and protect the body from ageing and degenerative disease.
According to the researchers, we should be aiming for at least 3,000, and for maximum protection 5,000, ORAC units every single day.
