Moringa Source's ORAC Test
Moringa Trumps All Other Superfood Rivals in ORAC Tests
At the request of Moringa Source, Brunswick Laboratories performed an independent study, (in-vitro) using Moringa Source's Moringa to test its Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (or ORAC value score). The ORAC value score is an accepted measurement of antioxidants in foods and supplements. Antioxidants are compounds which actively quench free-radicals, helping to prevent cellular damage - a common pathway for cancer, aging and a variety of diseases. With an amazing score of 157,000 umole TE/100g (hydrophilic and lipophilic) Moringa beat out all other antioxidant superfoods, including rivals such as matcha tea at 134,000, turmeric at 127,000 and acai at 102,700. Surprisingly, green tea, which is renowned for its antioxidant health benefits could only muster a score of 1, 240.
