Christian Dior & The Orac Score

101 54
More women know about Christian Dior than the ORAC Score. ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) is an assay that measures the antioxidant activity of a substance. That is, it quantifies the degree and length of time it takes to inhibit the action of an oxidizing agent, specifically oxygen radicals known to cause damage to the delicate machinery of living cells.

You might have heard the latest buzz word. If not, you will hear it here first. It is ORAC, which stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity and is calculated in units. Ladies, you will learn what Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity units really mean & how to never leave home without them.

The body can utilize approximately 5,000 ORAC units per day. Any more and the body will simply discard them. The current daily recommendation of 5 to 10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day translates to approximately 4000 - 7000 ORAC units per day. Read on to learn the best sources of ORAC units and why they are so important to your beauty--both inner and outer.

I'm Proof it Works!

When I'm not speaking or writing about inner/outer beauty, you'll find me at the gym practicing Yoga or kickboxing. To me Anti-Oxidants & Phytonutrients are like boxing gloves. Why? Because not only do they fight free radicals, they strengthen your immune system, increase your resistance to cold and other infections, boosting your energy levels & improving physical and mental performance. Since I have been on a strictly regimented fruit program, not a day goes by without someone complimenting me on my skin. I still get carded. I can't tell you the last time I've had a cold, even though I travel extensively and am constantly meeting new people. My fruit program has done wonders for me and I know it will do the same for you.

Your body is a fortress under constant assault. Infectious diseases, parasites, environmental toxins, physical trauma, allergens, and natural disasters are some external enemies it faces. From the inside, it is threatened by occasional overzealous allergic, immune, and inflammatory responses, as well as by the cellular mutations that produce cancer. Luckily, the body's defenses are remarkably successful, and most of the time we are unaware of the intense drama taking place within our cells and organs.

Just Like a Hot Sports Car

What girl doesn't like a sexy car? Porsche, Mercedes, BMW--no matter how irresistible that car is on the outside you know you have to take care of the engine for it to run its best. Focusing on your internal beauty is like changing the oil in your drop-dead gorgeous sports car--you don't notice right away that it drives any better, but the engine will last 100,000 miles longer because you did the preventative maintenance. Ladies, how many of you believe it's good to change the oil in your car? That is something we can all agree on, right? Your body is no different, except that we were born with only one model & trading it in is not an option! Let's strive for putting premium in our bodies so it operates more efficiently. If something happens to my AMG55 I can always upgrade but my body doesn't come with a warranty. I think you get the point.
