ORAC and Antioxidants: Realizing the Potential

Abstract:
Maher suggested testing bioavailability by measuring serum antioxidants after ingestion of an antioxidant product. This proves especially productive for plant-based antioxidants, which contain some poorly absorbed phytonutrients. To address the dilemma presented when a lipophilic phytonutrient has a good ORAC score but is poorly bioavailable, Maher suggested nanotechnology. Creating a liposome that encapsulates both hydrophilic and hydrophobic phytonutrients for improved absorption, without significantly negating the original antioxidant potential.
