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 are exposed everyday. From pollution, to smoking, excess sunlight, stress and unhealthy diets.
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 deterioration of health over time. The apple on the right demonstrates free radical damage. The apple experiences oxidation when it is cut and exposed to oxygen.
Protect yourself from free radicals:
- Active Lifestyle
- Healthy Weight
- Adequate Sleep
- Supplements to fill in the gaps
- Anti-Inflammatory Diet
The Antioxidant Hand Scanner:
The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is a unique tool that non-invasively measures carotenoids antioxidant levels in skin tissues using the long-accepted science of Raman Spectroscopy. By simply placing the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner’s low-energy blue light, you will obtain your Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) within seconds.
Carotenoids are organic pigments found in fruits and vegetables that are primarily responsible for giving them their red, orange and yellow colours. The more colourful fruits & vegetables you eat, the more carotenoids you give to your body, the higher your SCS will be.
