|For decades, health-conscious consumers relied on conventional antioxidants (such as vitamins E and C) to help suppress damaging free radicals. While thousands of published studies support the benefits of conventional antioxidants, scientists have discovered that extracts from brightly colored fruits and vegetables possess far greater antioxidant capacity. In fact, human epidemiological studies show that those who regularly consume these potent plant-based polyphenols and anthocyanins remain far healthier in their advanced years. If you're not eating the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in particular the dark-skinned varieties, you could be lacking optimal antioxidant protection against toxic free radicals.
To measure the antioxidant strengths of food and other substances, scientists use what is called the ORAC score. A higher score means the food is better at protecting the body's cells from free radical-induced damage. So, the higher a food's ORAC score, as in dark-skinned fruits and vegetables, the better it is for you. However, problems with availability, the perishable nature, and the cost of obtaining a wide variety of high-ORAC fruits and vegetables on a daily basis mean they are often difficult to get in the typical American diet.
To overcome these issues, Life Extension offers Berry Complete formula, which provides a concentrated blend of fruit and vegetable extracts that have some of the highest ORAC scores around. Each capsule is packed with scientifically proven polyphenols and anthocyanins from seasonal and perishable fruits and legumes that are typically the highest in ORAC values. Just one capsule provides the antioxidant capacity of more than 50% of the daily recommended five a day intake of fruits and vegetables. Berry Complete therefore provides an affordable way of getting powerful antioxidant protection from a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables into your diet to help fight free radical damage and promote healthy aging.
