Antioxidants are present in the body in blood, cells and tissues. They play an important role in neutralizing oxidative damage caused by free radicals. They also protect the normal functioning of cells and tissues. Antioxidant levels are often measured by the ORAC scale, which stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. AppleBoost scores extremely high on the ORAC scale. In fact, gram per gram, it’s five times higher than fresh, whole apples.
