BerryRadical Antioxidant Superfood

BerryRadical Introduction

BerryRadical is a revolutionary certified organic antioxidant superfood designed to assist the body in attaining vibrant health, well-being and longevity. The ingredients in BerryRadical are proven to assist the body in neutralising free radical damage which can be caused by cigarette smoke, toxins, pollutants and poor eating habits.

ORAC, short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a standardised measurement of the total antioxidant power of a substance. Antioxidant power is the ability to neutralise oxygen free radicals. The more free radicals a substance can absorb, the higher its ORAC score. Nutritionists recommend that we consume around 3500 ORAC units from eating at least 7 servings of fruit and vegetables per day to significantly impact antioxidant activity in the body and reduce free radical damage.

In fact, one 3.5g teaspoon serving of BerryRadical contains over 4000 ORAC units! One 105g tub contains 123,375 ORAC units.

BerryRadical contains nine potent antioxidant superfoods in one delicious product – organic raw cacao, raw coffee fruit, organic olive juice, organic pomegranate, organic goji berry, organic acai berry, organic blueberry, organic raspberry, organic strawberry.

The freeze dried ingredients in BerryRadical are 10 times more potent than their fresh fruit equivalent.

 ORAC per 100g (fresh)  ORAC per 100g (freeze-dried) 
Dark Chocolate   20,806Raw Cacao    95,500

Miessence Superfood Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is DeepGreen recommended for expectant mothers?

Answer: In regards to the DeepGreen and its ingredients, Dr. Hills introduced spirulina to the world in 1979. This was the result over over 40 years of research done by Dr. Hills.  Never once was spirulina not recommended for pregnant mothers. In fact just the opposite, we have always recommended to mothers to eat spirulina and in my 25 years being associated with spirulina I have never heard a negative comment about spirulina in this relation. In a book written by Robert Henrikson called Earth Food Spirulina I quote the following paragraph.

"Pregnant women need extra protein and iron, without too much additional fats and carbohydrates, and because of this, spirulina is a perfect whole food supplement for them. In India and Vietnam, spirulina is specifically promoted for nursing mothers."

In InLiven and DeepGreen we only use the best quality certified organic spirulina.

Question: Are Miessence Superfoods recommended for babies

Answer: You can start children at any age on our superfoods. Most of our customers tend to start them at the age of 2 years old. It is a good idea to start on just 1/4 of a teaspoon of each superfood and monitor it from there. You can always up the dose after a few weeks.

Question: How should I take DeepGreen?

Answer: Mix in water or juice, preferably freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juices. Can also be blended with a fruit smoothie, sprinkled over foods and used in salad dressings.

Question: Is DeepGreen gluten free? Is it raw and vegan?

Answer: Yes, all Miessence Certified Organic products are raw and vegan. They are gluten free with the exception of InLiven.

Wheat grass is an ingredient in Miessence DeepGreen Superfood. It is gluten free.

The gluten protein originates in the grain of sprouted wheat. It is not found in wheat grass.
