  • The most comprehensive, broad-spectrum antioxidant method available
  • Brings a whole new level of understanding to the radical protective properties of products.

The original ORAC measured against:

 hydroxyl Hydroxyl - HORAC
 peroxynitrite Peroxynitrite - NORAC
superoxide Superoxide anion - SORAC
singlet-oxygen Singlet oxygen - SOAC

Total ORAC does not just measure against Peroxyl, it measures broad-spectrum performance against the known top 5 radicals:

  • ORAC - Peroxyl
  • HORAC - Hydroxyl
  • NORAC - Peroxynitrite
  • SORAC - Superoxide anion
