Several methods have recently been developed to measure the total antioxidant capacity of biological samples. But the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) method is unique, says developer Guohua Cao.
(Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)
Comparing Antioxidants - Highest O.R.A.C.
A new laboratory test known as ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) was developed by USDA researchers at a Local University
to rate the antioxidant levels of fruits and vegetables. It ranks the Ningxia wolfberry, also known as the Goji-berry as the best antioxidant food in the world.
Ningxia Red Juice VS The Competition
Wow - look at how Ningxia Red Juice compares
to the "so-called" competion!
ORAC measures 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."
D. Gary Young, founder and
president of Young Living Essential Oils, embarked on a similar odyssey in 1973,
following a devastating logging accident. From a wheelchair, he vowed not only
to walk again, but to find health, vitality, and longevity. For nearly 30 years,
he single-mindedly continued his pursuit.
Hundreds of years ago, Spanish Explorer
Ponce de Leon set out on a quest for a magical fountain of water that was said
to offer rejuvenation and immortality to all who drank from it. Traveling through
the New World, he uncovered numerous legends regarding the water, and yet, he
never located the enchanted spring...
Then, in 1994 Gary was approached
by a Chinese scientist who was visiting the United States on a fact-gathering
assignment. Dr. Songqiao Zhao, senior researcher at the Chinese Science Academy,
told Gary about a simple, delicious-tasting berry with amazing health benefits.
He said that Chinese wolfberries had been used for thousands of years to treat
a wide range of illnesses. What's more, the people who consumed them on a regular
basis lived remarkably healthy lives for 100-plus years.
Intrigued by the story,
Gary began an investigation that eventually led to the creation of some of the
most exciting health products in the world.
Chinese wolfberries grow
in a remote area of central China near Inner Mongolia. Considered a treasure
by the local people, they have been studied by Chinese physicians for thousands
One Chinese Medica dating back 2,000 years cites their use in treatments
ranging from replenishing vital essences to strengthening and restoring major
More recently, comprehensive
analyses have found that wolfberries contain 18 types of amino acids, 21 trace
minerals, 29 fatty acids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E, more beta carotene than carrots,
more Vitamin C than oranges, and as much protein as bee pollen. What's more,
they are a source of superoxide dismutase and phenylpropanoids. Numerous studies
by the Chinese government have shown that Chinese wolfberries are extremely useful
for boosting the immune system, protecting the liver, improving the quality of
blood, and improving vision.(3,4,5,6)
Ningxia Red Juice
Encouraged by the prospect
of an all-natural, good-tasting substance that could be so helpful in improving
health, Gary determined to find ways to share the benefits of the wolfberry with
people everywhere. Young Living Essential Oils, the largest importer of wolfberries
in the world, now offers the power of wolfberries as a delicious, refreshing
beverage: Ningxia Red.
Ningxia Red Juice is a super antioxidant berry juice containing the highest known antioxidants
used by some of the longest-living people on earth. This antioxidant super-juice is formulated
to maintain and support normal immune function and is enhanced with essential oils.

agingare believed to result from accumulated damage caused by free
radicals. Fortunately, antioxidants have proven an effective weapon against
"Young and middle-aged people
may be able to reduce risk of disease by adding high ORAC foods to their
diets," states Floyd P. Horn, Administrator of the Agricultural Research
Service, the chief scientific agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Antioxidants help neutralize the
free radicals, allowing the body
to restore itself to the proper balance that leads to health and well-being.
To help you combat the damaging
effects of free radicals, simply take a single serving (one ounce) of Ningxia Red Juice, which supplies 267 percent of the Daily Value of the antioxidant
vitamin C, along with a host of other nutrients. What a delicious way to
protect your health!
Drinking a single ounce of Ningxia Red Juice every day will do more for your health than you can imagine!
Our bodies are bombarded daily
by the damaging effects of free radicals that are created through normal
metabolic functions. In fact, Dr. Bruce Ames of the University of California
at Berkeley estimates that the DNA of each of our cells is attacked by
free radicals over 10,000 times per day. Added to that is the polluted
environment we inhabit in today's world, which increases the scope of the

A new laboratory test known as
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), developed by USDA researchers, rates Ningxia Red Juice as the number one antioxidant
product on the market.
Developed by Dr. Guohua Cao at
USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at a local 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.
