The more color the better. Fresh, raw, organic produce all works synergistally to provide whatever you want and need. It's that simple.

I don't think one should worry about what has the highest antioxidants, rather just eat a nice variety of allegedly high antioxidants foods.
But to answer your question, cacao beans are supposedly teeming with antioxidants. Pomegranates and Acai are good in antioxies too, to name a couple more.
Like the dude from Fringe once told me in a dream, "All foods are antioxidants".

There's a list of foods according to their ORAC values (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) at http://oracvalues.com/sort/orac-value. ORAC is a way of measuring the effectiveness of an antioxidant.

I am currently drinking a superfood shake from a recipe I stumbled on. It has coconut meat and water, cocoa powder, goji berries, acai powder, lucuma, maca, hemp powder, cashews, coconut oil, cocoa butter, carob powder, almond butter. Phew. I think that's it. Supposed to have mesquite powder and vanilla powder too but I couldn't find them at my HFS. I am going to the gym now to see how my superfood shake stands up. My antioxidant level should be off the chart!! May not be able to sleep tonight with all that cocoa:o

I'm a lover of spinach, cacao (in moderation), Kombucha, elderberry (I drink the extract in water several times a day), and just about any dark green vegetable.
I agree with Revvell - let food be thy medicine. :)

I have started to use AstaXanthin in an effort to clear my ostioarthritis. It is supposed to have very high levels of antioxidents.
I must say that it has reduced my pain somewhat so I am very hopeful.

Sounds like Snoops fell onto a David Wolfe recipe... that should be a tasty smoothie! Cheers!

It was OK. I will make it again (now that I've bought all the powders:rolleyes:) but will leave out the carob powder. It was too chocolatey - if that's possible. I was actually googling recipes with maca and lucuma in them because I've had them in my pantry and fell on this one.
