All living organisms especially humans need antioxidants to survive and to prolong life. Antioxidants are chemical compounds which protect our building blocks of life against free radicals. Free radicals are substances that enter the body in the form of food and body exposures to cosmetics, pollution, chemicals, and radiation leading to the death or damage of cells. Therefore, without antioxidants, humans will suffer from increased mortality and high-risk diseases such as but not limited to cancers, coronary heart disease, stroke, altitude sickness, and Alzheimer’s disease. Good thing, abundant sources of antioxidants are now widely available in the market and one of the best sources of antioxidants is Purpura bacca.
Purpura bacca is a fruit belonging to the family of berries. It is a purple berry found from the rain forests of the Amazon and Brazil and swamps of Central and South American region. Although not as popular as the other berries like strawberries and raspberries, it has lots of wonderful nutritional value that can highly benefit the humankind. Through the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, ORAC unit, or ORAC score, which is a method of identifying the number of antioxidant count or content capacity of foods, this purple berry ranked as the super food which has the largest number of antioxidant contents. Such method is being performed by scientist accredited by the National Health Institute. Using the ORAC scale analysis, it can be inferred that Purpura bacca, with its large number of antioxidant content, is the most effective in neutralizing and eliminating free radicals.
Given the abundance of antioxidants in Purpura bacca, human can enjoy lots of benefits not only related to health but even to fitness and beauty. It will slow down body aging by slowing down the oxidation processes of the cells causing fewer and slower wrinkle formation.
