ORAC scores of some Spices

Hello dear ones, I got this message from a friend and thought it would be useful for all of us. So, I am sharing it here:

What is ORAC ?

ORAC is Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. Higher ORAC, Better will be oxygen carrying capacity of blood & Lungs oxygen capacity.

In the Future, our survival will be based on our Immunity

Why spices are important for our Life?
Look at their ORAC Values….πŸ‘πŸ™

Clove          : 314,446  ORAC
Cinnamon : 267,537  ORAC
Coffee        : 243000   ORAC
Turmeric   : 102,700  ORAC
Cocoa         :   80,933  ORAC
Cumin        :   76,800  ORAC
Parsley      :   74,349  ORAC
Tulsi           :   67,553  ORAC
Thyme       :   27,426  ORAC
Ginger       :   28,811  ORAC

Extracts of Ginger, Tulsi, Turmeric are at least 10 times higher ORAC Values. That’s how they become effective.



Nature boosts immunity …

High ORAC foods and Nutrients such as Iron, Vitamin C, Zinc, Omega 3, Magnesium and Vitamin D helps boost our body’s defence mechanism.

Apart from Tulsi, Ginger, Pepper, Turmeric, Cinnamon, Clove … herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Mulethi, Arjunarishtam, Peppermint, Coriander Seeds, Cumin Black deeds are catching attention of Scientists. 

So, this is more than any vaccine one needs for self immunity, without any side effects !

Our Future is Our immunity. We have to refine our inbuilt immunity.!!Β Stay Healthy. Be Happy.β™₯πŸ™

    1. Yes, only few are still valuing these traditional medicinal spices and herbs. Majority are following Allopathic medicines and expensive supplements in place of cheap and easily available medicinal foods from our kitchens.

    1. I will check and let you know. What I use for hairloss and got good effects are applying lukewarm coconut oil mixed with 3/4th castor oil three times a week and wash off with mild shampoo, combing hair upside down and on scalp with wide tooth (big one) comb once daily and eating black sesame balls daily.

      1. I was using this castor oil method but I ran out of the oil now and I don’t know when I will come again to India! 😁

        Eating black sesame balls is new to me though. Thanks Krishna! πŸ™‚

      2. Okay. You can use olive oil or vitamin E oil instead of castor oil, but make sure to mix with coconut oil. Eating black sesame seeds is good for heart, skin, hair, and overall health πŸ™‚

  1. I don’t have the herbs you mentioned with highest ORAC values, but I am convinced that every nation and every geographic location has its own very valuable natural remedies and effective plants and herbs. I’m writing about that, too, in lifeschool blog.
    The reason one needs to stick to local and what their ancestors have consumed is in the DNA aspect of recognizing the important substances.
    And, certainly, you are right mentioning that they need to be in natural state, free of chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides which is practically impossible to implement with megafarming.
    This list and mention of ORAC values are very important for fighting COVID-19 since virus causes extreme blood clotting and patients don’t have enough oxygen in their bloodstream to support vital functions.

    1. Yes, you are absolutely right Inese. It is always good to stick to locally available herbs and spices at your place as it will be more effective to your body than trying new ones, especially at this trying times. How is the COVID cases in your place? Here in Trivandrum, amidst the government regulations it is increasing and we are all taking immunity boosting foods and going out just to buy essentials only with masks and social distancing. Thanks for reading and giving comments πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ’•

  2. Oh wow!!! This is very helpful, Krishna! I’d never heard of ORAC! I’ve got the coffee, cinnamon and cocoa covered πŸ˜…, but could add more of all others. Really love this. Thank You and Thanks to Your friend and to Kirat Shergill as well!!! Cheers, huge hugs and Let’s ALL stay healthy!!!! πŸ€—β€οΈπŸŒ€πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ
