How long the antioxidants last in our organism ? - dsb9000 - 10-21-2009 09:24 AM

Hello

1. I would like to know how many hours the antioxidant effect last in each item.

Daily, i´m eating the follow items:

cloves: (morning: 0,5g / afternoon: 0,5g)
cocoa powder (morning: 25g / afternoon: 25g)
cinnamon: (morning: 5g / afternoon: 5g)
oregano:(lunch: 5g / afternoon: 5g)
bran rice: (lunch:10g)
kiwi: 2 units


I´ve read that milk inhibit the antioxidant absorption.
2.So , how long before and after drinking milk we should wait to eat antioxidant food ?
3. Is there any others foods that act against antioxidants ? Which are they ?

Thanks for help.

ps: It´s my second post. I don´t why, but the first one didn´t work.

The cinnamon i´m using is light and a bit "sweet".
The dark one is really strong and the taste i don´t liked. That one i´m not using.

Well , so i will decrese the amount and keep just the variety.

But, i would like to keep a high antioxidant diet ( heathy, of course) mainly by using cocoa powder.



1. I´ve heard about some benefits about eating 50g-100g of chocolate (50% of cocoa). But most chocolates have 4X more fat and 2X more calories than pure cocoa.How i´m vegetarian, maybe this can compensate the 5 grams of total fat obtained by cocoa powder.
I´m not eating chocolate and neither candy by all the day, just pure cocoa powder (25g morning + 25g afternoon) with some fruits and water. Even so can be unheatlhy ?

2. Based on actual studies, what should be the healthy amount of cocoa powder to eat daily ? Eating one time is worse than eating half ,twice, along the day ?

3. Is useless surpassing 5000-6000 ORAC ? What number i shouldn´t surpass ?

4. 4 soap spoons daily of oregano is toxic, or not healthy ?


Thank you

I promess to contain my doubts :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

soap spoon = table spoon (improving my english yet...)

Well, now i´m using just teaspoons of some spices. I´ve also decrease the amount of cocoa powder to 25g daily.

Thanks
