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.
We use many therapeutic essential oils in Alywillow products because they are small particles that sink through the skin and when that essential oil is from plants with high ORAC values, they offer offer us the excellent antioxidant protection.
According to the ORAC Values (developed by USDA Agricultural Research Service ), Clove has the highest antioxidant value of all foods and we use this in two of our custom therapeutic formulas – Warrior Formula and Sage Cleanse Formula.
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.
Yes, that’s right… 1,078,700 µTE/100g.
We believe having clove in our formulas is a powerful bonus for your body!
