times the amount of Vitamin C than oranges, just as much Vitamin E as wheat

determined by electron spin resonance due to its high content, whereas
flavonoids accounted for less than 5% of total antioxidant ability in sea

many other nutrients and antioxidants. This super fruit has been used in
Chinese medicines for over 12 centuries to treat various conditions. As this
plant product has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, it
