  • ORAC
  • Chilean maqui berry, which is FDA-approved and contains the highest ORAC (a system of measure for antioxidants) level in the world, has hit the U.S. Only a few companies manufacture it, but I recommend Isla Natura brand (Full disclosure: the company is owned by a friend of mine, which-in addition to maqui's health benefits-is why I feel comfortable touting this product).

  • In the following discussion, the term "antioxidant" refers mainly to non-nutrient compounds in foods, such as polyphenols, which have antioxidant capacity in vitro and so provide an artificial index of antioxidant strength - the ORAC measurement. (wikipedia.org)
  • Despite the above discussion implying that ORAC-rich foods with polyphenols may provide antioxidant benefits when in the diet, there remains no physiological evidence that any polyphenols have such actions or that ORAC has any relevance in the human body. (wikipedia.org)
  • The increase in antioxidant capacity of blood seen after the consumption of polyphenol-rich (ORAC-rich) foods is not caused directly by the polyphenols, but most likely results from increased uric acid levels derived from metabolism of flavonoids. (wikipedia.org)
  • inhibit
  • Antioxidants such as α-tocopherol, which partition into the lipid compartment of cells, or N-acetylcysteine, a free radical scavenger that partitions into the aqueous phase of the cytosol, can delay or inhibit apoptosis (24,25). (redorbit.com)
  • Thus, it is reasonable to suggest that removal of antioxidants from the diet might enhance apoptosis, and thereby inhibit tumor growth. (redorbit.com)
  • Beverages
  • Antioxidant drinks are beverages that strengthen the immune system and may even prevent development of dreaded diseases like cancer. (buzzle.com)
  • cells
  • Antioxidants refer to substances that act against the free radicals, which are reactive substances that can cause damage to cells, thereby making one susceptible to medical conditions. (buzzle.com)
  • free
  • First one is a general antioxidant introduction, whereas the second chapter is about Free Radicals and the Free Radical Theory. (hubpages.com)
  • Olive leaf extract contains strong antioxidants that help in scavenging free radicals and protecting from disease-causing pathogens. (buzzle.com)
  • These antioxidants are also known as free radical scavengers. (selfgrowth.com)
  • This study, published recently in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke, measured the protective benefits of antioxidant-rich foods in 5,680 women with heart disease and 31,038 women who were heart disease-free. (newsmax.com)
  • Thus, though early administration of antioxidants may prevent the initiation and progression of cancer by quenching the action of potentially mutagenic reactive free radicals, administration of antioxidants subsequent to a mutagenic event may effectively intercept free radicals that are critical in promoting apoptosis.

  • lipid
  • Tirilazad is an antioxidant steroid derivative that inhibits the lipid peroxidation that is believed to play a key role in neuronal death in stroke and head injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • extract
  • This extract showed strong antioxidant activity against 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH. (omicsonline.org)
  • another antioxidant I try to implement as much as possible is catechins (the active extract in green tea), as the research I have (so far) has only pointed towards positive effects and health benefits both in terms of immunology, decreased cancer risk and increased system abilities.

  • diets
  • Research spanning three decades suggests that grass-based diets can significantly improve the fatty acid (FA) composition and antioxidant content of beef, albeit with variable impacts on overall palatability. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Perhaps, before cancer patients supplement their diets, suppression of apoptosis by antioxidants needs to be considered. (redorbit.com)
  • food
  • Therefore, a diet rich in plant food is likely to provide a variety of antioxidants. (selfgrowth.com)
  • This is a list of antioxidants naturally occurring in food. (wikipedia.org)
  • Accordingly, regulatory agencies like the Food and Drug Administration of the United States and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have published guidance disallowing food product labels to claim an inferred antioxidant benefit when no such physiological evidence exists. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • however, by inhibiting apoptosis, these same antioxidants may exert a cancer-promoting effect in cancer patients and in individuals with precancerous DNA changes. (redorbit.com)
