ORAC Values by USDA
Early findings suggest that eating plenty of high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) fruits and vegetables, such as spinach, blueberries, and prunes, are powerful antioxidants that may help slow the processes associated with aging in both the body and the brain.
According to the ORAC Values, which were 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, excellent benefits can result. We use clove in the cleansers and moisturizers which are made with our Warrior and Sagerow formulas. These formulas are a powerful bonus for your body and can be used from head to toe - even on your face!
