ORAC Values:

With an Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC) Rating of 4,100 ORAC Units, Bioflavia SO is a very powerful antioxidant. The daily consumption of antioxidants is critical for maintaining a healthy lifestyle as antioxidants neutralize Free Radicals molecules present in the body that are associated with various diseases including cancers and ageing.

The ORAC unit has become an accepted industry standard for measuring antioxidants. The ORAC unit is the first in vitro assay method for measuring total antioxidant potential. The recommended daily antioxidant dose should add up to 5,000 ORAC units each day. In a study of 36 elderly people, boosting their fruit and vegetable intake to reach 3,200 ORAC Units a day increased the antioxidant potential of the blood by 10 to 15%; enough to have an impact on disease prevention (Holly, 2003).

According to USDA Government estimates, the average consumption of antioxidants per day by North Americans is about 1,200 ORAC Units. This means the average person is short between 1800 and 3800 ORAC Units each day. Bioflavia is a convenient and easy way to supplement one’s intake of antioxidants on a daily basis.
