While thousands of published studies support the benefits of conventional antioxidants (like vitamins E and C), scientists have discovered that extracts from brightly colored fruits and vegetables possess far greater antioxidant capacity.8-15 In fact, human epide-miological studies show that those who regularly consume these potent plant-based polyphenols and anthocyanins remain far healthier as they age. If you’re not eating the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, especially the dark-skinned varieties, you could be lacking optimal antioxidant protection against toxic free radicals.
To measure the antioxidant strengths of food and other substances, scientists use an ORAC score.16 A higher score means that a particular food is better at protecting the body’s cells from free radical-induced damage. But problems with availability, freshness and cost mean that obtaining a wide variety of high-ORAC fruits and vegetables daily can be difficult.
So Life Extension® developed the Berry Complete formula to provide a concentrated blend of fruit and vegetable extracts with some of the highest ORAC scores around. Each capsule is packed with scientifically proven polyphenols and anthocyanins from seasonal and perishable fruits and legumes with the highest ORAC values. Just one capsule provides the antioxidant capacity of more than 50% of the daily recommended five-a-day intake of fruits and vegetables.
