Also, the grape seed extract in Purple Defense has a higher ORAC value – or antioxidant potency – than many other fruits and vegetables.
Free radicals are very reactive molecules that reproduce a response to the environmental toxins and cellular actions in your body. This is typically a result of energy production in your mitochondria that happens when you burn your food as fuel.
But what are mitochondria? Well, in short, mitochondria are the vital engines in nearly every one of your cells that produce over 90% of the energy currents in your body. These energy currents are known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This is your body’s biochemical way to store and use energy.
