Moringa Tops All Other Superfoods in ORAC Tests
Moringa powder is the perfect addition to your superfood smoothie. Its status as the most potent superfood ever discovered, is now a proven scientific fact. In a recent independent (in vitro) study conducted by Brunswick Laboratories, moringamio's moringa powder was tested to determine its Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (or ORAC value score). The ORAC value score is a measurement of antioxidants in foods and supplements.
Antioxidants are compounds which actively destroy free-radicals and this helps to prevent cellular damage, the common pathway for cancer, aging and a variety of diseases. With a score of 157,000 umole TE/100g (hydrophilic and lipophilic) Moringa oleifera powder beat out all other antioxidant superfoods, such as turmeric at 127,000, acai at 102,700, cocoa powder at 55,653, pomegranates at 4,479 and blueberries at only 2,400.
