Bozeman, Mont.âSageantâs Core Protectâ¢, a leading antioxidant and adaptogenic liquid nutraceutical, was recently tested to have an ORAC value of 71,073 for its 32 ounce bottle. This yields a remarkable 2,220 ORAC score per servingâone of the highest scores for any of the antioxidant supplements on the market today.
âThis test validates what Sageant has known for yearsâCore Protect is one of the best antioxidant âliquiceuticalsâ available in todayâs market,â says Kelly Gaisford, President and Founder of Sageant.
Comprised of extracts of some of the most powerful adaptogenic herbs including Rhodiola rosea, Lycii (Goji) Berry, He Shou Wu and other whole fruit extracts, Core Protect helps your body adapt to physical, emotional and psychological stress while protecting your cells from the ravaging effects of free radicals. Core Protect is formulated with a minimum 60:1 extraction of whole fruit and adaptogenic herbs.
âIn other words, we start with 60 pounds of special herbal nutrients and whole fruit ingredients. Then, through an intricate process, we concentrate them to yield one pound of extract,â Gaisford said. âThis makes Core Protect one of the most nutrient-dense and potent antioxidant, stress fighting nutraceutical available anywhere.â
The ORAC scores for Core Protect, when compared to other antioxidant liquid nutraceuticals tested by Brunswick Labs, are even more impressive. Core Protect was found to have a higher ORAC score than Ningxia Red, Xango Juice, Goji Juice and Tahitian Noni. (See chart below.)
Always looking to improve on her formulas, Gaisford is working hard to further enhance the antioxidant, stress-fighting properties of Core Protect. The new and improved formula is slated for introduction in early 2007.
ORAC, the acronym for âOxygen Radical Absorption Capacity,â is a widely used testing method that measures the antioxidant activity or capability of a food ingredient or formula. The ORAC score quantifies the degree and length of time it takes to inhibit the action of oxygen radicals, known to cause damage to living cells. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the antioxidant capacity. The official test was conducted by Brunswick Laboratories, the nationâs premier ORAC third-party, independent testing facility.
