Where Can We Find Antioxidants?
Antioxidants are actually created inside of our bodies, and ideally, it should be enough for our bodies.
But if our diets and lifestyles aren't ideal, it is a good idea to take additional antioxidants.
Antioxidants are found in astringent foods, teas and wines and especially in high superfoods like Chaga.
Each antioxidant is actually measured by a special score, called the ORAC score.
The ORAC score (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a method developed by scientists at the National Institute of Health and Aging (NIH) to measure the antioxidant capacity of different foods.
Let's say a blueberry, has an ORAC score of 2,080.
It is tasty, and easy to add to your diets.
More "exotic" foods usually have higher amounts of antioxidants.
Goji berries, for example, has an ORAC score of 40,000, which is 20 times higher! But you can't find Goji berries at every corner.
Acai berry is another great (and tasty) antioxidant with a score of 80,000.
But nothing can get even close to the great Chaga mushroom, with the ORAC score in the millions...
