While thousands of published studies support the benefits of conventional antioxidants (like vitamins E and C), scientists have discovered that extracts from brightly colored fruits and vegetables possess far greater antioxidant capacity.189-193,199-204 In fact, human epidemiological studies show that those who regularly consume these potent plant-based anthocyanins and other polyphenols remain far healthier in their advanced years. If you’re not eating the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, especially the dark-skinned varieties, you could be lacking optimal antioxidant protection against toxic free radicals.
To measure the antioxidant strengths of food and other substances, scientists use an ORAC† score.194-196 A higher score means that a particular food is better at protecting the body’s cells from free radical-induced damage. But problems with availability, freshness and cost mean that obtaining a wide variety of high-ORAC† fruits and vegetables daily can be difficult.
The formula has been developed to provide fruit, vegetable, and legume standardized extracts, powders, and concentrate with some of the highest ORAC† scores around. Each capsule is packed with scientifically proven polyphenols and anthocyanins from seasonal and perishable fruits and vegetables with the highest ORAC† values. Just one capsule provides the antioxidant capacity of more than 50% of the daily recommended five-a-day intake of fruits and vegetables.
