What are antioxidants and why are they so important?

Antioxidants are very important to our body. Antioxidants are the nutrients that help protect the cells within the body from being damaged by free radicals in our system. Unfortunately free radicals come in part as we continue to consume processed nutrient depleted, chemically laden food. These junk foods and chemicals are what contributes to the level of free radicals in our body.
A good way to know the value of the antioxidants protection you get in a product is a test called ORAC value. It is an indicator for that product to provide antioxidant protection against free radical damage. ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity. When you understand the ORAC value of the MannaFeast, it is naturally occurring so it is more effective and the level of ORAC is literally off the chart.
