What is the Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity (ORAC)?
The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity) scale designed by the USDA, measures the amount of free oxygen radicals that a food, or supplement can absorb in your body. Chaga has the highest ORAC score for natural foods or supplements as tested by the USDA and Tufts University in Boston, MA.
Oxidative stress caused by free radicals, has been demonstrated to accelerate the aging process in both cells and blood vessels. Oxidative stress also increases the risk of certain types of cancers, coronary heart disease and many other health problems.
Chaga Mushroom has the highest ORAC score for natural foods or supplements as tested by the USDA and Tufts University.
