The ORAC Values of BarleyLife®


Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a standardized test adopted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for comparing the amount of antioxidants in foods and supplements. Antioxidants help resist disease, boost your immune system and slow down the aging process.

Suzanne Dixon, M.P.H., M.S., R.D., is a cancer nutrition specialist at the University Michigan. She describes ORAC this way, “How well does a certain food help my body fight diseases like cancer and heart disease?”

So the higher the ORAC value in a food, the more antioxidant power in it.

Studies show the average person only gets 1200 ORAC units per day from three servings of fruits and vegetables. Yet 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units per day are needed for good health.

Each tablespoon of BarleyLife® powder has 1275 ORAC units. Two tablespoons a day have 2550 units and three tablespoons 3825 ORAC units.

BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra are high in antioxidant power. For over thirty years, researchers have found young barley plants to be one of the richest sources of nutrition on earth.

Why not put the odds for good health in your favor with BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra?
