Antioxidants have been proven to be an important addition to all of our lives. Antioxidants can benefit your health by cleaning free radicals out of your bloodstream.
The benefits are widely documented and the test results have shown in various studies that antioxidants can reduce the signs of waging.
They can even also protect your skin from sun damage, and reduce the incidence of sunburn!
Research has also shown that antioxidants have been credited in the prevention of a number of other degenerative, age-related disease, including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Cognitive impairment
- Immune dysfunction
- Macular degeneration
Because of these promising results there are lots of companies trying to market their latest antioxident rich super juices. Often they cost a lot, so which are the best?
Many are sourced from obscure locations in the Pacific, Asai or the Amazon. They often come with alluring tales of miricle cures and healing properties. These juices all claim to be the most powerful antioxident available.
And some claim to have “Antioxident super powers”
So to test these claims a company I recommend called Melaleuca asked Brunswick labs to conduct scientific tests on juices to acertain which was the most effective and just for fun we added in supermarket bought purple grape juice.
The results were quite revealing.
Monavie claims that its Acai Berry juice is one of the “worlds top superfoods”and is rich in antioxidents.
Melaleuca’s test results show a marked actual difference in their stated Antioxident content and the lesser amount actually shown in a serving of their juice.
Kyani refer to their juice as having “unmatched antioxidant superpower” and Xango claims its juice contains “powerful Antioxidants”. Tahition Noni claims its juice is “one of the worlds great super anti-oxidants”
So what is the truth?
Are these juices really the best in the world?
There are well accepted tests where scientists can compare juices against another Antioxident proven product including Melaleuca’s – ProvexCV.
ProvexCV has several key proven benefits such as reducing LDL cholesterol oxidation, supporting healthy platelet activity and improving arterial elasticity.
The tests involved two well know measurements ORAC ( Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) and FRAP (Ferric Reducing Antioxident Power). The Orac test measures how well the oxidative agent ( fluorescein) is destroyed when combined with antioxidants. FRAP is similar in principle and measures the ability of a substance to reduce oxidation.
These ORAC and FRAP tests are the most widely accepted methods of measuring antioxidant strength and are the industry standard for testing juices and antixidant specific vitamin supplements.
The test shows that these so called Super Juices are in fact less effective on both tests and are even less effective than Welch’s Grape Juice and up to 6 times less effective than ProvexCV!
