Here is an article that rates Mangosteen as the highest
anti-oxydant by far. 17,000 ---- 24,000 orac compared to other popular anti-oxydants such as vitamin E oil 3,309 orac. & prunes 5,570 orac. Noni juice 1,506.,& tOxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC)
You already know that antioxidants are important to your overall health
But just how much do you really need, and where can you find a good source?
LIVE QUESTION by Rod:
Hi Dr Templeman . . . supposedly the researchers at the USDA claim that to provide meaningful antioxidant benefits, you need at least 2400 to 3000 Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) in your daily diet . . . are you aware of this testing and if so, what would the XangoÔ score be . . . we are told one ounce of cranberry juice has a score of 328 and a product called Metberry has a score of 3147 . . . any truth to this??? Thank you . . . Rod.
LIVE REPLY by Dr Templeman:
Rod, XangoÔ has been analyzed by two labs and one had a value of 17,000 and the second a value of 24,000 ORAC per one oz
dose. I don’t know of anything else out there that’s anywhere close to it. We’ve got a winner . . Dr T.
You read it correctly . . .
Newest lab tests show XANGOÔ as being the #1 antioxidant product on the market today!
See Product and “Whole Food” comparisons below:
Xanthones are found in Mangosteen.
Mangosteen is the primary ingredient found in XangoÔ.
A NEW CHAMPION is BORN!!
Compare all to XANGOÔ at
17,000 to 24,000 ORAC per one oz (30ml) dose.
Berry Young Juice Ô 4,214
Vitamin E Oil 3,309
Tahitian NONIÔ 1,506
17,000 + found in XANGOÔ
Adding ORAC-rich fruits, vegetables, oils, herbs and vitamins presents a remarkable antioxidant application for neutralizing accumulated post-exercise free radicals. High-ORAC value may help slow the aging process in both body and brain. There is a need to balance reducing free radical expression in two mediums – water soluble and fat soluble tissue sites.
What are the top foods for reducing exercise induced free radicals??

Q. What is oxidation?
A. Oxidation is a natural process that occurs around us all the time. One example of oxidation is rusting. This EXACT SAME PROCESS HAPPENS IN YOUR BODY! – The cells, organs and other parts of your body can be made weak by oxidation. This can lead to diseases like cancer and heart disease.
Q. Is there anything I can do to stop this oxidation damage from happening in my body?
A. YES!! One of the best ways to stop oxidation is by choosing the right foods to eat. The more oxygen radicals a food can absorb, the higher its ORAC score.
Q. Why must we be concerned?
A. When oxygen free radicals get the upper hand over antioxidant activity, the result is an imbalance known in scientific jargon as “oxidative stress”. This simply means that the free radical thugs can overpower our antioxidant potential. Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies tend to produce more free radicals and fewer antioxidants, potentially leading to mental and physical decline. This ‘antioxidant slowdown’ is said to begin at around age 25, making it necessary to take in supplementary antioxidants as you get older, in order to maintain a youthful balance.
According to research we need about 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units per day to have a significant impact on plasma and tissue antioxidant capacity
