Dear Valued Client,

We are beta testing a new layout for our beginning of the month eNewsletter. We believe it more succinctly encapsulates our information in a format more pleasing to the eye.

Note that Recipe du Jour and eNews Updates are in the left column. There is one new section, Wellness Links, that hosts Brand Buzz, Locavore Tidbit, Ask Bonnie, eNewsletter Archives, and more.

Please let us know what you think of the new layout

H1N1 (Swine) Flu Update

Food Focus
 ORAC Foods
Oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC), measures the ability of a substance to subdue oxygen free radicals. In other words, it is shows how potent an antioxidant is.

Because antioxidants are linked with so many health benefits, including aging and longevity, functional food companies are crawling over each other to provide the product with the highest ORAC content. What they don't want you to know is that there are already foods made in nature that provide quite an antioxidant punch.

The USDA recommends we consume 5,000 ORAC units daily. Unfortunately, most of us only get about 1,000. Here is a list of common foodstuffs with high ORAC content:
  • Fresh Spices (most are in 20,000 or more)
  • Pecans (17,940)
  • Walnuts (13,451)
  • Cranberries (9,584)
  • Dark Chocolate (9.080 if 70% or higher cocoa content)
  • Blueberries (6,552)
  • Plums (6,259)
  • Blackberries (5,347)
  • Garlic (5,346)
  • Raspberries (4,888)
  • Almonds (4.454)
USDA's full list of ORAC content in foods.
