ORAC Values by USDA
Early findings suggest that eating plenty of high-ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) fruits and vegetables – such as spinach, blueberries, and prunes – are powerful antioxidants that may help slow the processes associated with aging in both body and brain.
According to the ORAC Values (developed by USDA Agricultural Research Service), Clove has the highest antioxidant value of all foods. Clove’s ORAC value is at 1,078,700 µTE/100g.
To give you an idea of what this means…. oranges are rated at 750 µTE/100g, Kale is rated at 1770 µTE/100g, Raisins are rated at 2830 µTE/100g, Prunes are rated at 5770 µTE/100g and Clove is rated at 1,078,700 µTE/100g.
Alywillow formulas are created using therapeutic essential oils which are small particles that sink through your skin. When that essential oil is from plants with high ORAC values, they can offer you excellent benefits. We use clove in the soaps and moisturizers made from our Warrior and Sagerow Formulas - a powerful bonus for your body!
