Top 10 High Antioxidant Foods List

Antioxidants may be easier to add to your diet than you might think. Based on ORAC scores provided by the Nutrient Data Laboratory, Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center and Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, below are some of the top antioxidant foods by weight:

  1. Goji berries: 25,000 ORAC score
  2. Wild blueberries: 14,000 ORAC score
  3. Dark chocolate: 21,000 ORAC score
  4. Pecans: 17,000 ORAC score
  5. Artichoke: 9,400 ORAC score
  6. Elderberries: 14,000 ORAC score
  7. Kidney beans: 8,400 ORAC score
  8. Cranberries: 9,500 ORAC score
  9. Blackberries: 5,300 ORAC score
  10. Cilantro: 5,100 ORAC score

The ORAC scores above are based on weight. This means that it might not be practical to eat high amounts of all of these antioxidant foods. Other high antioxidant foods not listed above, which are still great sources and highly beneficial, include common foods like tomatoes, carrots, pumpkin seeds, sweet potatoes, pomegranates, strawberries, kale, broccoli, grapes or red wine, squash, and wild-caught salmon. Try to consume at least three to four servings daily of these high antioxidant foods (even more is better) for optimal health.
