Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity
Recently scientists developed several methods to measure the total antioxidant capacity of
biological samples. But the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)
method is unique, says developer Guohua Cao.
the degree to which a sample inhibits the action of an oxidizing agent and
how long it takes to do so. Then it integrates the two measurements into a
single one. This provides an accurate and reproducible measurement for
different types of antioxidants having different strengths. "Whole fruits and vegetables contain a mixture of natural antioxidants that can
protect the vulnerable compounds."

A new laboratory test known
as ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), developed by USDA
researchers at Tufts University, rates Berry Young Juice™ as the
number one antioxidant product on the market.
Developed by Dr. Guohua Cao
at USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts
University, the ORAC test is one of the most sensitive and reliable
methods for measuring the ability of antioxidants to absorb free
radicals. It is the only test to combine both time and degree of
inhibition of free radicals.
Comparative analyses against
Tahitian NONI™ and other fruits showed Berry Young Juice's supreme
advantage over all antioxidant nutritionals. Ningxia wolfberry
(Lycium barbarum v. Ningxia) was shown to have the single highest
antioxidant ability of any food tested.
Ningxia wolfberry is truly a superfood. I've never seen anything
like it. I am absolutely convinced that it is the principle cause
for my excellent health during the last three years."

"I have no doubt that the
Ningxia wolfberry and Young Living's Berry Young Juice™ will
revolutionize how we treat premature aging. Since I have
incorporated it into my daily regimen, my stamina has improved
markedly. And it has been an important factor in allowing me to
still perform long-distance running, even at age 76."
