Antioxidants are important for eye health because they help protect the eyes from oxidative stress, which is caused by harmful molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells in the eyes, leading to various eye conditions, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and glaucoma.
In addition to helping protect against oxidative stress, antioxidants also play a role in maintaining healthy blood flow to the eyes and supporting healthy vision. By maintaining the overall health of the eyes, antioxidants can help reduce the risk of developing serious eye conditions and promote healthy vision into old age.
We use the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner to non-invasively and comfortably measure carotenoid levels in the skin, which provides an immediate indication of the overall antioxidant levels in the body. After the scan, you will instantly know your antioxidant status, which will empower you to make specific improvements to your diet and lifestyle and make an informed decision on which supplements are properly formulated to impact antioxidant health.
How does the S3 Scanner work?
The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s first measuring tool that gives you a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS)—immediate evidence of carotenoid antioxidant activity in your body.
By placing the palm of your hand in front of the scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light, within seconds you will obtain a reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin—your Skin Carotenoid Scores (SCS)—which has been scientifically correlated to overall antioxidant status.
The technology of the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is based on an optical method known as Resonant Raman Spectroscopy, which has been used for many years in research laboratories. In less than one minute, you can find out if your diet, lifestyle, and supplements provide the antioxidant protection you need to promote health.
