How much antioxidant is in that…?
Antioxidants are important because they protect the cells of the body from damage. They are found in many foods and beverages. But it is important to know which foods have particularly high levels. The ORAC value makes this clear.
What does ORAC value mean?
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) describes the ability of the food or drink to neutralize oxygen radicals. Free radicals can cause damage in the body, which in turn can cause aging and disease. Antioxidants are supposed to prevent this. The ORAC value indicates, so to speak, a value for the antioxidative potential.
It gives a good orientation for a good diet. The higher the value, the more harmful free radicals can be neutralized by the food or drink. For a healthy, balanced diet, the daily value should be 3,000 to 8,000. This gives the body good protection.
The antioxidant drink Ciaga is highly concentrated. It has an exceptional ORAC value of 5,000
Antioxidants have to be absorbed mainly through food
Our body is constantly under stress. Environmental pollution, smoking, alcohol, UV rays or an unhealthy diet can cause free radicals to take over in the body. Oxidative stress can cause a variety of diseases. Antioxidants can prevent this.
Spices and berries with antioxidants
There are herbs and spices that contain the effective antioxidants of food, in high amounts
Barley grass is rich in antioxidants and can therefore help well against chronic challenges. In addition, barley grass is rich in chlorophyll, which helps to build new blood cells. Nikken’s barley grass juice is called Greenzymes.
Berries have a very high antioxidant content. They can prevent oxidative stress. This is caused by free radicals which attack the body’s cells and are thus involved in the ageing process and in the development of various challenges. Many berries are contained in the antioxidant drink Ciaga.
So a morning Ciaga and/or Greenzymes ( barley gras) not only wakes you up, but also fills your cells with antioxidants right at the beginning of the day. These can protect your cells throughout the day. Of course, Ciaga or barley grass cannot compensate for unhealthy nutrition or work wonders.
Antioxidants are true helpers for many things. Free radicals, which damage our body, need an adversary. Fortunately, there are foods with plenty of antioxidants here for us.
All we have to do is eat them.
