ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity

Fantastic results after sending samples of Revenol and Cascading Revenol to be independantly tested to find out what their ORAC scores are. 

So What is ORAC?

ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.  This is a scientific way of saying "How well does a certain food help my body fight disorders like cancer and heart disease?"

Oxidation and oxygen radicals are well-known and documented; this process leads to cell damage.  Prevention or limitation of this damage will improve health.

Also, ORAC scores are used by nutritionists to identify which foods offer a higher capacity to absorb free radicals.  Using these ORAC scores, we can easily identifies which foods are better at fighting cancer, heart disease, etc.

Studies show that eating plenty of high ORAC foods:

  • Raises the antioxidant power of human blood 10 to 25 per cent.
  • Prevents some loss of long term memory and assisted learning ability in middle-aged rats.
  • Maintains the ability of brain cells in middle-aged rats to respond to a chemical stimulus - a function that normally decreases with age.
  • Protects rats' tiny blood vessel capillaries against oxygen damage.

So can foods really slow down the aging process?

Studies on ageing at the United States Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Centre at Tufts University in Boston, suggest that consuming fruits and vegetables with high ORAC values may help slow the ageing process in both the body and the brain. 

It has been suggested for many years that damage by oxygen free radicals is behind many conditions associated with ageing, including cardiovascular disease and cancer.  Firm evidence supports the theory that a high intake of fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of cancer and a low intake raises risk.

Such evidence has prompted increasing sales in antioxidant food supplements in recent years, but several large studies involving individual antioxidants have had mixed results.  It may be that combinations of nutrients in foods have a greater effect than each nutrient taken alone.

The power of antioxidants.

Neways International (UK) Ltd commissioned an independent laboratory in the UK to test a number of Neways supplements for comparison with fruit and vegetables.  The table (which we will type out further below) indicates the ORAC values of a number of foods, compared with Revenol and Cascading Revenol.

Amazing results, Cascading Revenol is 150 times more powerful than the best antioxidant fruit, blueberries, with Revenol being 33 times more powerful than the same fruit.

Also, Cascading Revenol is 450 times a stronger antioxidant than both oranges and red grapes.

ORAC Score Table (based on average values)

  • Cascading Revenol: 3600
  • Revenol: 800
  • Blueberry: 24
  • Blackberry: 20.5
  • Garlic: 19.25
  • Strawberry: 17.5
  • Kale: 17.5
  • Spinach: 12.6
  • Brussels Sprouts: 9.8
  • Broccoli Floret: 9.5
  • Plum: 9.25
  • Alfalfa Sprouts: 9
  • Beetroot: 8.5
  • Red Pepper: 8
  • Red Grape: 8
  • Orange: 8
  • Cherry: 6.75
  • Kiwi Fruit: 6.5
  • Pink Grapefruit: 4.75
  • White Grape: 4.5
  • Onion: 4
  • Corn: 3.6
  • Cauliflower: 3.5

The above show the ORAC Score mmol trolox equivalents/g

So What does this mean for you?

The latest guidelines from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) advises that everyone should consume at least five portions (one portion = 80g) of fruit and vegetables a day.  We believes that a healthy diet is vitally important to general health.

Supplementing a diet with one Revenol and one Cascading Revenol a day will provide a total of 4028 ORAC units.  Coupled with a healthy diet this ensures that the recommended ORAC intake is not only achieved, but is considerably enhanced, with an estimated total of 7500 ORAC units.

It is important to note that the recommended daily ORAC intake can be achieved by consuming one Revenol and One Cascading Revenol a day.
