*Limitations of Antioxidant Units Value (A.U.V.)
High levels of Antioxidant Units consumption from eating a balanced diet featuring a wide variety of whole grains, fruits & berries and multi-colored vegetables has many benefits. But Antioxidant Units is only one measure of the healthiness and/or nutritional merit of a single food, and values may vary based on growing conditions and other variables. Increasing dietary Antioxidant Units from low levels is smart, but research indicates the rate of benefit improvement begins to diminish above 20,000 units per day.
