Herbs and spices rich in antioxidants

Interestingly enough the foods with the greatest ORAC scores are not actually “foods” the way we think of the word but herbs and spices.

  • Clove
  • Cinnamon
  • Oregano
  • Tumeric
  • Cumin
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • * Rosemary is not in the picture but it’s at 165K which puts it above Oregano

So next time your in the kitchen consider adding some anti-aging spices to the mix.

Foods Rich in Antioxidants

Next let’s look at foods that we actually consume in larger quantities. These foods come in with ORAC scores just underneath the herbs and spices from above.

Remember the ORAC score stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity. The higher an ORAC score the greater the antioxidant capacity of the food.

Foods rich with antioxidants

These foods include:

  • Goji berries
  • Cranberries
  • Black raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Elderberries
  • Dark chocolate
  • Pecans, Cilantro

Interestingly to note the berry with one of the highest ORAC scores that’s not on this pictured list is Acai berry which comes in at a whopping 102K. That’s higher than some of the spices listed above.
