The Biophotonic Scanner
Why Should I be Scanned?
By measuring the stable level of carotenoid antioxidants in your skin and generating your Skin Carotenoid Score, the Scanner provides a more accurate and reliable biomarker of your overall antioxidant health status than other methods of measuring antioxidants. Getting your Skin Carotenoid Score makes you aware of the antioxidant levels in your body-and gives you the push you need to improve your overall antioxidant health.
HOW ANTIOXIDANTS PROTECT US FROM FREE RADICALS
Each day we are exposed to free radicals—many of the physical effects we call aging are a result of free radical damage, and no matter how healthy you try to be, you receive free radical damage every single day. They’re even caused by UV light, pollution and use of mobile phone.
When left unchecked, free radical damage to your cells accumulates and can lead to serious health concerns later in life. In fact, free radical damage can cause premature aging and is a large factor in the deterioration of health over time.
FREE RADICAL DAMAGE
A visual example of free radical damage is when you slice an apple and it turns brown. This natural process is called oxidation. As oxygen interacts with cells of any type – an apple slice, for example-oxidation occurs.
Antioxidants are your first defense against free radicals—they freely share their electrons and stop the degenerative chain reaction of free radicals. Our bodies naturally generate some antioxidants, however, new research shows additional sources of antioxidants may provide added protection against a growing onslaught of free radical invaders.
“Our understanding of antioxidants and their effect on overall health has dramatically increased through the use of the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner. Since its inception in 2003, thousands of people have been empowered to make better life choices through the personalized feedback they receive from the Scanner.”
