Antioxidants

How they make Alfa Vita so healthy?

Antioxidants are a group of biochemical substances necessary for the proper functioning of the human organism. Their main property is neutralizing the free radicals, formed by body’s metabolic activity that damage cellular DNA and thereby accelerate the aging process.

Among the well-known antioxidants are vitamins A, C and E, coenzyme Q10 and etc. It has been shown that antioxidants are not only neutralizing free radicals, but also improve the physiology of the body, protect it from viruses, bacteria, toxins, and boost the immune system.

In the last decade scientists from around the world "crowned" the Resveratrol as the most powerful natural antioxidant, contained in the highest concentrations in red grapes and wines. This chemical substance is responsible for the healing power of wine noticed by philosophers and poets thousands of years.

Attempting to accurately determine antioxidant powers of wine and other foods stuffs United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has developed a special measurement unit called Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity or just ORAC.

Scientists recommend daily consumption of foods with total antioxidant value between 3000 and 5000 ORAC units. Studies of many nutritionists, however, show that the average modern person consumes only 1000 ORAC units per day.

Multiple analysis, made by Japanese Food Research Laboratories proved that Alfa Vita Cabernet Sauvignion 2010 is the wine with highest amount of ORAC units per 100 ml in the world - 8700 μmol TE / 100 ml.

Why Alfa Vita is the healthiest wine on the planet?

Hundreds of clinical trials show that antioxidant capacity of more than 8000 μmol TE / 100 ml in ORAC makes our wine undeniable in treating various cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, liver diseases, erectile dysfunction, atherosclerosis and the many others.
