Are you getting enough ORAC?

ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) measures the total antioxidant power of foods.

Leading nutritional researchers believe that you should strive to consume approximately 10,000 ORAC units daily to promote health, wellness, and longevity.

See the image below for a list of the top ORAC rich fruits and vegetables (per 100 grams, or about three and a half ounces) as measured in a study conducted by researchers at Tufts University in Boston.
