Ultra Opc has a very high ORAC value.
ORAC is an abbreviation for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity and was developed by the National Institutes of Health in Baltimore. In short, ORAC units measure the antioxidant capacity of foods. The higher, the better. It is widely believed that high antioxidant foods help greatly to lower the risks of degeneration, and disease.
What are Antioxidants ?
Antioxidants come in several forms, including the vitamins A, C, and E; plant-derived polyphenols, found in colorful fruits and vegetables; and also the element selenium, found in nuts and broccoli. “What these compounds share,” explains K. Sandeep Prabhu, Penn State assistant professor of immunology and molecular toxicology, “is the ability to neutralize harmful molecules in our cells.”
These harmful molecules, known as free radicals, contain unpaired electrons—which is unusual because electrons typically come in pairs. “The unpaired electrons make free radicals highly reactive, and in this state, they can cause damage by attacking the components of our cells.
So where do free radicals come from? Some are created as a natural by-product of reactions in our cells, says Prabhu. Other sources of free radicals include cigarette smoke, air pollution, and exposure to UV light or radiation. And once free radicals are formed, they can make more free radicals by scavenging electrons from other molecules, “creating a domino effect,”
What are the Benefits of Antioxidants – Ultra Opc?
Antioxidants come up frequently in discussions about good health and preventing diseases. These powerful substances, which mostly come from the fresh fruits and vegetables we eat, prohibit (and in some cases even prevent), the oxidation of other molecules in the body. The benefits of antioxidants are very important to good health, because if free radicals are left unchallenged, they can cause a wide range of illnesses and chronic diseases.
What are Antioxidants and Free Radicals?
The human body naturally produces free radicals and the antioxidants to counteract their damaging effects. However, in most cases, free radicals far outnumber the naturally occurring antioxidants. In order to maintain the balance, a continual supply of external sources of antioxidants is necessary in order to obtain the maximum benefits of antioxidants. Antioxidants benefit the body by neutralizing and removing the free radicals from the bloodstream.
What is Isotonic ?
An isotonic solution refers to two solutions having the same osmotic pressure across a semipermeable membrane. This state allows for the free movement of water across the membrane without changing the concentration of solutes on either side.

… We've been customers of yours for years--and haven't had the flu during that time and I think only two cases of a mild cold that lasted a day (when everyone else was very ill). Thank you for this product.
I received my package and I was most impressed. I hope to remain a customer for years to come and refer you to my friends.

My wife and I have been using your product and have been noticing excellent results. We now have all of our family members and a lot of friends very interested!

My wife suffered for years from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and was on a downward spiral with little hope and no successful treatment found from all we tried in the modern medical community. Healthy living including regular exercise, good food, vitamins, and a daily regimen of OPC and some other alternative treatments like acupuncture turned her life around to where she has not had any serious symptoms for decades. But you could say she is addicted to OPC because without it she notices right away that she doesn’t feel as fantastic! Thanks to alwaybuying for providing us with a consistently excellent and very competitively priced product for all these years as well as great customer service. I know this probably sounds like a paid endorsement but I have absolutely no connection with the company and did not receive any compensation for writing this. I am just an honest long term satisfied customer.

PS disclaimer - I am not a doctor and you should not take this product and service review as medical advice.
I tried other OPC brands and formulas but have found your works the BEST. Since I've been taking my wife has noticed the less frequent colds during the year so she has also started with a daily dose of ULTRA OPC. We are both very thankful for your product and will continue to be loyal customers.
