Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) May 08, 2007 -- The amazing wolfberry, the worlds most powerful food antioxidant tops the ORAC charts. Foods highest on the ORAC test are those which best neutralize free radicals.
Wolfberries Are a Chinese National Treasure. The NingXia Wolfberry which is a native Chinese vine adorned with trumpet-shaped flowers and deep red fruits. This fruit is known by ancients as the herb of transcendence. Wolfberries have grown in NingXia, China for hundreds of years and its fruit is highly valued for its pleasant taste, nutrient value, medicinal properties, and there are legends about the fruit dating back 5,000 years.
Because of the good health and vitality of the Ningxia elderly has long been attributed to their wolfberries. To the people of the province, a bowl of fresh wolfberries a day is part of life. Its health benefits have been extolled for generations. In fact even today, the Ningxia wolfberry is considered a national treasure.
Tuft University developed the ORAC test and now foods can be tested to assay their capacity to neutralize these free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidation, inflammation, toxicity and mitochondrial dysfunction in our bodies. They are produced by our metabolism and toxic environments.
ORAC: Oxygen radical absorbance capacity. Another test is for superoxides. S-ORAC: superoxide radical absorbance capacity. Superoxides are the most dangerous and prevalent free radicals in our bodies.
S-ORAC testing measures a product's ability to destroy the most dangerous and abundant free radical--Superoxide. Elevated superoxide is linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, asthma, and other inflammatory conditions
By developing a proprietary formula that combines wolfberry juice with the juices of blueberries, raspberries, apricots, and pomegranates, Young Living created NingXia Red, an amazing "synergistic" food juice.
Research at Cornell University proved the synergistic effects of the phytochemicals found in whole foods. What this means is that sometimes "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts."
Young Living research has confirmed that the juices combined in NingXia Red's proprietary blend actually boost one another's antioxidant properties to produce a higher ORAC measurement than would be achieved by simply adding their scores together.
Ningxia wolfberry, the primary ingredient in NingXia Red food drink, along with the powerful combination of select juices and essential oils, is what makes NingXia Red the food juice of choice for daily health optimization!
