Has an ORAC test ever been conducted on Original Goji Juice?
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a non-official, non-governmental test that claims to measure "total antioxidant power” in a laboratory beaker. This test is controversial because it cannot predict how an antioxidant will work inside the human body. In fact, many high-ORAC juices may perform very poorly when ingested because their antioxidants remain trapped in the gastrointestinal tract. Conversely, the bioactive Lycium barbarum polysaccharides in our goji juices work with your body to activate its own antioxidant enzymes, which can circulate freely to help protect every cell in your body.
