* The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) unit, ORAC value, or "ORAC score" is a method of measuring the antioxidant capacity of different foods and supplements. It was developed by scientists at the National Institutes of Health. While the exact relationship between the ORAC value of a food and its health benefit has not been established, it is believed that foods higher on the ORAC scale will more effectively neutralise free radicals. According to the free-radical theory of aging, this will slow the oxidative processes and free radical damage that can contribute to age-related degeneration and disease.
Cautions: High in phenols, oregano may irritate the nasal membranes or skin if inhaled directly from diffuser or bottle, or applied neat. Avoid contact with eyes, mucus membranes, sensitive skin, or fresh wounds or burns. Do not apply to infants younger than 18 months of age.
