ORAC


"Recently our label changed from 15,000 ORAC to 40,000 ORAC but our formula has not changed! The testing protocol has been upgraded from testing just one of

five to testing all five reactive species found in the body. 
Initially our 15,000 ORAC label value was based on the antioxidant fighting power of the hydroxyl radical.  But now the new improved industry standard can test Total ORAC values (all five of the free radicals found in our bodies) which include peroxyl, hydroxyl, peroxynitrite,
super oxide anion and singlet oxygen.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s an antioxidant! These superheroes of nutrition help defend your body against the effects of evil free radicals. Their power is measured through ORAC, or Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity. For comparison, a 3.5oz serving of carrots have 210 units per serving, Plums 949...and Amazing Grass ORAC Green SuperFood? 40,000! Using a combination of 5 key antioxidant blends made from high quality fruits, vegetables, and herbs, it’s the perfect sidekick to the whole green organic SuperFood of Amazing Grass. It also supports healthier skin, brain function and immune system."

  • Vitamins A, D, E, K - healthy bones, essential antioxidants
  • Minerals - immunity, healthy cell growth, calcium absorption
The vitamin D3 in our Pineapple Lemongrass is technically not vegan. The D3 (cholecalciferol) that we use comes from wool oil. This is considered a vegetarian source (the animal is not harmed, just sheared), but not vegan. Our goal is to provide the highest quality food based multi-vitamin blend and the D3 source is acceptable by most of our vegetarian and vegan consumers.   The fact is that the vegan form of D2 just isn’t absorbed into our bodies as effectively as D3.
*Please note, Pineapple Lemongrass contains coconut water. "

What we think: Pineapple Lemon grass is refreshing, especially during hot weather! Mix it with cold water and you will fell rejuvenated. Great as well in yogurt.
