Montmorency tart cherry's juice is the world's most underrated superfood. Not only is it a potent source of melatonin, which allows for deeper, more restful "beauty sleep," but is among the world's premiere free radical scavengers. "Even the best antioxidant-dense foods like acai berries can't even compare to this cherry's whopping 7,000 ORAC rating," he exclaims. It also contains many anti-inflammatory anothocyanins, or pigments, and health-restoring bioflavonoids.
WHAT DOES ORAC MEAN?
Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity ORAC is a standardized test adopted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. The ORAC test is a very precise way of establishing the impact of foods and nutritional supplements ability to neutralize Free Radicals.
If you want to give your body the most potent fruit concentrate we could find, discover “Apothe-Cherry”, you will LOVE IT!
A recent study by University of Michigan researchers found diets that included cherries significantly lowered insulin and fasting glucose levels, key markers for type 2 diabetes.
More than 50 million Americans have "pre-diabetes" and near -ly 20 million have type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association estimates that most Americans with pre-diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years unless they change to their food and excercise behaviors.
This war started before you were born and it will continue until you die. Although it's a war that always ends in defeat, there's a lot you can do to markedly postpone that ultimate defeat and to maintain a state of vibrant health into advanced old age.
Every day, countless battles are won or lost. When we lose a battle, it may result in more wrinkles, “liver spots”and weight gain. When we begin to lose many battles, and the war goes badly, we open ourselves to disease.
The chief destructive force that your body has to contend with is free radicals.
A free radical is a cellular killer that wreaks havoc by damaging the DNA altering biochemical compounds, corroding cell membranes, and destroying cells outright. Scientist know that a radical plays a major role in the aging process as well as in the onset of cancer, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and possibly allergies and a host of other ailments.
There are four primary sources of free radicals:
1. The environment: Air pollution, cigarette smoke, smog, soot, automobile exhaust, toxic waste, pesticides, herbicides, ultraviolet light, background radiation, drugs and even certain foods can all generate free radicals in the body.
2. Internal Production: Our bodies constantly produce free radicals as a byproduct of normal metabolism.
3. Stress Factors such as: Aging, trauma, medications, disease, infection, and "stress" itself all accelerate the body's production of free radicals - by a factor of eight, or more.
4. Chain reactions: In many cases the new free radical will seek to balance itself by stealing the electron - and on and on. And remember, even one free radical is capable of destroying an entire cell, or a strand of DNA.
Antioxidants are compounds that render free radicals harmless and stop the chain reaction formation of new free radicals.
There are three sources of antioxidants.
1. Several metabolic enzymes produced by the body are extremely effective antioxidant scavengers unfortunately, the body's ability to produce these enzymes fades dramatically in our late twenties.
2. Many foods and plants provide powerful antioxidants scavengers. Among these are vitamins E, C & Beta Carotene.
3. Cutting edge research is continually uncovering new antioxidants.
The use of antioxidants supplements at a maintenance level may provide the ultimate defense against premature aging and a compromised immune system. At therapeutic levels, antioxidants may actually play a significant role in reversing many of the effects of aging and disease.
Live to age 120 in glorious health?
Sound absurd? In a remote mountainous area of Russia people routinely live well past 100 years. Their air and water are pure. Due to the mineral composition of their environment their foods and water are unusually high in chromium, boron, selenium, and zinc. All of these contribute to the destruction of free radicals.
Biological Clock Of Aging
There are two parts of the aging process. Understanding the difference could add many years to your life because one of them can be controlled. What one can do nothing about is your biological clock which is built into your genes. Changes like puberty, menopause, and male pattern baldness are genetically programmed. Few people die from these genetically programmed changes. They die from cancer, stroke and heart disease which is mostly caused by free radical damage. This is the part of the aging process that you can control.
Given Powerful Antioxidants
A recent study at The University of Kentucky compared the ability of old and young gerbils to run a complex maze. The old gerbils made 2.5 times as many mistakes as the youngsters. When the elderly gerbils were given a powerful antioxidant, they were able to do almost as well as the young gerbils. As animals age they have lower levels of key brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. Their brain cells have been damaged by free radicals. Upon taking powerful antioxidants, the neurotransmitter levels rise dramatically and the damaged brain cells return to almost normal.
