Super Juices - Part 2 -Eating Healthy Nutritious Food

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:01pm


In part 1 of our look at "Super Juices" on the market today (last post), we featured Beyond Berries whole-food juice powder from URI International .



A few more specifics about Beyond Berries are quite notable and should be mentioned here.



Antioxidants are something that most Americans have at least heard of and indeed most of us also know that the more of these we have in our foods, the better.



ORAC has become the latest "buzz" word in the nutritional industry. ORAC is an abbreviation for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity - a method of measuring the overall antioxidant activity of the particular ingredient, food or product being tested.



The higher the ORAC value, the more antioxidant power. The ORAC test was developed once scientists became aware that
phytonutrients such as antioxidants found in fruits & berries have such powerful health benefits.



In fact berries were found to be the highest on the ORAC scale! The greatest protection is provided when a variety of foods high in these nutrients are combined, like those found in Beyond Berries.



An intake of 3,000-5,000 ORAC units per day is recommended. Because most people are already getting a portion of this value from their diet, research suggests supplementing the diet by at least 1000-2500ORAC units per day.



Beyond Berries Powder boasts an amazing ORAC value of 2,460 per daily minimum suggested use! Beyond Berries ORAC value is naturally occurring and is not artificially increased through the addition of isolated or
synthetic additives .

Whew! What a list of "who's who" among good fruits and berries! You know, I have to be quite honest with you...I've been using Beyond Berries for over a year now and I never really sat down and evaluated each ingredient and it's benefits until now.



It's no wonder why I feel so healthy since integrating this into my life! I've just been drinking it for the sheer joy and taste of it but I've been truly made stronger for it. I will also add that my family (hubby and kids) consume this regularly as well and we've honestly had a year of so little virus, flu, or illness that it is shocking to realize.



If you're wanting to try this true SUPER JUICE for yourself just email me at
food4thejourney@gmail.com and I'll send 1 packet of BEYOND BERRIES per household... FREE.



Beyond Berries is the perfect compliment to
eating healthy nutritious food .
