However, it would be safe to consume, if one can handle the fermented taste. Meanwhile, if spoilage occurs due to mold or bacterial overgrowth, the taste will become bitter and completely off-putting. In case of spoilage, discard the Elderberry Syrup completely.

Free radical and antioxidants go hand in hand. Our bodies naturally produce free radicals. They are essentially highly reactive particles, that are free-roaming throughout the body causing cellular damage. As a result, they cause many negative health conditions and diseases. Free radicals are a product of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, and other environmental toxins and stressors. Antioxidants prevent and help us recover from free radicals causing cellular damage, as a result preventing or helping recovery from disease. Therefore, the role of antioxidants through food and supplements is essential to one’s health in order to neutralize these free radicals.

ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It is a measure of the amount of antioxidants in a given food product or supplement. Developed by the United States Department of Agriculture USDA in conjunction with Brunswick Labs in Southborough, Massachusetts. ORAC score or value is a useful indicator of total antioxidant content. The higher the ORAC, the more the antioxidant potency of that given food product or supplement. While not official, some researchers at the USDA recommend consuming about 3000-5000 total ORAC (measured in micromol Trolox Equivalent/100g) daily from foods and/or supplements.

Our Premium Elderberry Syrup contains lab verified 675 total ORAC per teaspoon serving. While, our Aronia Magic contains 4300 total ORAC per tablespoon serving.
