Fortifying Your Anti-Aging Defense
November 19, 2014
Did you know your skin is at war? Every day there is a constant battle between your healthy skin cells and the free radicals that seek to destroy them. The food you eat and supplements you ingest aid in your body’s ability to combat these free radicals. But how do you know if your body is getting the proper amount of antioxidants needed to win the war? The answer lies in a device designed specifically to tell you how well equipped your body is to ward off free radicals and maintain an undamaged, youthful appearance.
What? Validated by multiple studies and years of research, the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner has transformed the way we look at our health. By measuring the stable level of carotenoid antioxidants in your skin, this unique device provides an accurate look at the efficiency of your supplements and health of your diet.
How? Obtaining your own Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) provides a personalized biomarker of your overall antioxidant health.
Why? Your body faces a continuous barrage of free radicals, and you need to do your part to safeguard against their damaging effects. By maintaining a high level of carotenoids, a powerful family of antioxidants, you’ll be better equipped to combat the destructive oxidants that cause premature aging and damage to cell structure. As organic pigments found in fruits and vegetables, carotenoids also contribute to immune function, eye health, and other vitamin-A-related functions.
This knowledge enables you to make the necessary changes required to take control of your health.
By simply placing the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner's LED light, you will obtain an immediate reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin. Simple. Quick. Painless.
Making Sense of Your Score:
Very Low Protection. May indicate high oxidative stress, absence of an antioxidant supplement, and poor diet.
Low Protection. Common in people who do not regularly take antioxidant supplements and who eat diets low in fruits and vegetables.
Moderate Protection. Common in people who eat better diets high in fruits and vegetables and/or take antioxidant supplements.
High Protection. Common in people who eat healthy diets high in fruits and vegetables and take antioxidant supplements.
How to improve my score
There are a number of ways to improve your SCS. The best source of carotenoids is proper nutrition. Eating a rich diet of fruits and vegetables, as well as seafood such as salmon, crab, and shrimp will greatly improve your carotenoid level. If you find it difficult to meet the recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables, incorporate high-quality, comprehensive supplements daily as an additional source of antioxidants.
