Antioxidant content and total ORAC

As the most recognisable measure of antioxidants on the market, ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) has gained great exposure in the supplement industry. However, it remains only a prece of the complete antioxidant picture.

Commonly used as a measurement of antioxidants by the nutraceutical and food undustries, ORAC is the measurement absorbance capacity of the radical peroxyl, Peroxyl is the most abundant free radical in the body, but ORAC does not provide the full spectrum of absorbance capacity of all free radicals created within the cells. Many different pytomutrients within CoCoa LeafGreens have antioxidant capacity and a single ORAC assay will not fully reasure all of them.

ORAC5.0™ is an innovative assay that examines all five major free radicals: peroxyl, superoxide anion, hydroxyl, singlet oxygen, and peroxynitrite. This total ORAC score measures CoCoa LeafGreens and its phytonutrients' ability to neutralise or counteract these free radicals and maintain a healthy immune system. CoCoa LeafGreens contains 16,634 total ORAC per day, which represents a unique and diverse combination of antioxidants (The ORAC5.0 results for CoCoa LeafGreens can be found below.

High diversification of antioxidants is essential to combating free radical damage and maintaining a healthy immune system. CoCoa LeafGreens scores in each of the five Total ORAC tests, with notable results for its ability to combat peroxyl, hydroxyl and singlet exygen.

 Cacao beans

Cocoa

CoCoa LeafGreens contains a three-part mixture of cocoa powders. Organic cacao powder, organic cocoa powder and alkalized cocoa.

The organic cacao powder comes from cacao beans and retains the unadulterated cocoa flavour, natural antioxidants and fiber found in the original bean. The organic cocoa powder and alkalized cocoa are obtained through hydraulic pressing of cocoa mass whereby cocoa butter is removed from the bean.

Cocoa contains an abundance of antioxidants and flavonoids; over 700 vital compounds have been discovered in cocoa. These compounds contribute to cocoa's support of bone health, its benefits for the cardiovascular system and its effect on energy. Harvard researchers found that the flavonoids in cocoa may prevent heart disease and several studies have supported cocoa's positive effect on blood pressure and cholesterol.

Along with these benefits, cocoa also has shown an ability to raise cognitive function and inprove mood. An Italian study noted that flavonols in cocoa can be associated with a positive effect on cognitive abilities like verbal fluency, bisual searching and attention. Cocoa's mood-elevating and anti-depressant properties can be traced to compounds like theobromine and phenethylamine, which are natural stimulants to increase endorphins and dopamine.

Spinach leaf spinach leaves

Spinacia oleracea is rich in nutrients, including many essential vitamins, minerals and potent antioxidants. Research shows that lutein may prevent age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. Among its many documented health benefits, the spinach leaf may also aid in curbing anemia, constipation, insomnia, obesity, high blood pressure, bronchitis and indigestion.


Faba bean leaf faba bean leaf

Viscia faba leaf offers a wealth of nutrient-rich flavonoids, the plant pigments partly responsible for the colour of many fruits and vegetables. The flavonoid quercetin is found naturally in faba bean, field pea and spinach leaves. Recent studies have found quercetin to inhibit the production and release of histamine and other allergic and inflammatory substances. Quercetin can inhibit the inflammation in joints, provide arthritis releif, inhibit the aggregation of platelets (abnormal clotting), and help improve circulation.

Field Pea leaf field pea leaf

Pisum sativum leaf contains the flavonoid kaempferol, which inhibits the osidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol and the formation of platelet clusters in the blood, providing benefits for those with arteriosclerosis. Kaempferol also plays a role in regulating the bolld's water-solium/glucose balance and kidney cell function, which can be problematic in diabetics.

Barley leaf barley leaf

Hordeum vulgare is the most nutritious of the green grasses. Barley leaf contributes to the high vitamin K and chlorophyll in CoCoa LeafGreens. Vitamin K is essential to the body's utilisation of calcium for bealthy bone density and to the healthy formation of blood clots to heas wounds. New research indicates that vitamin K may also help prevent the calcufication of arteries and regulate blood sugar. Chlorophyll protects the body from radiation, carcinogens and DNA damage and helps the body heal wounds, improve regularity and control odor.

Broccoli sprout broccoli sprouts

Brassica oleracea sprouts contain the highest concentration of sulforaphane of the cruciferous vegetables. Sulforaphane is a phytonutrient that may lower inflammatory response and improve cardiovascular health. A 2004 study found that broccoli sprouts increases stress in both cardiovascular and kidney tissues in animals. A study published in 2009 found that oral consumption of sulforaphane reduced inflammation in human airways by increasing naturally-occurring enzymes in the body.
