O.N.E. Amazon Acai and Free Radicals
Acai Berry Juice
According to data from the USDA, the Acai berries ORAC value (antioxidant capabilities) is 200-750% higher then any other fruit or vegetable. Science has linked Free Radicals as forces to such diseases as, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, aging, and many more.
"Don't underestimate the threat free radicals pose to our health. Scientists now believe that free radicals are casual factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer to cataracts. In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process itself. By controlling free radicals, anti-oxidants can make the difference between life and death, as well as influence how fast and how well we age"
A quote from Lester Packer, Head of Packer Laboratory -Dept. of Molecular and Cell Biology from, The University of Calf. at Berkeley.
So the evidence of what free radicals can do is now a fact, proven by modern science. Also proven is the fact that antioxidants are the solution to controlling and eliminating them, and preventing the damage they do to our bodies.
What are free radicals and healthy cells
Cells are made up of many atoms. When these atoms are healthy, they make an exact copy of themselves to keep the body healthy. What makes a healthy atom is the fact they have paired (2) electrons. Free radicals are atoms that only have one (1) electron. They go around stealing electrons from healthy cells, thus destroying and damaging them. When these damaged cells replicate, they make an exact copy of an un-healthy cell, thus leading to disease and premature aging.
Through modern science, we know that almost all known diseases and ailments are a direct result of what we are feeding, or not feeding are bodies.
