Our phramanex machineHow do you know your vitamins are being absorbed into your system properly? You may be surprised to know that most of the vitamins you buy over the counter at your local grocery store or most nutritional stores do not get absorbed into your system. They end up passing through your system and you are literally flushing your money down the drain.

We now have a way to test your caratenoid antioxidant levels through the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner. If your vitamins are being absorbed into your system properly then you should have higher antioxidant levels. Antioxidants help defend your body against free radicals. Our bodies naturally generate some antioxidants, and certain foods also contain antioxidants. However, new research shows additional sources of antioxidants may provide added protection against a growing onslaught of free radical invaders.

The BioPhotonic Scanner was developed by a team of over 50 leading doctors and scientists from around the globe and over $180 million dollars went into developing this new scanner. The incredible Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner has transformed the way we look at our health because we can now prove that certain brands of vitamins are ineffective.



What is the Scanner?

It’s a revolutionary tool developed by Pharmanex to measure the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin-and prove the effectiveness of your supplements in improving your overall antioxidant health.

Place the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light, and you will obtain an immediate reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin-your Skin Carotenoid Score. The Scanner does not cut you, poke you, prick you, or burn you. The BioPhotonic Scan takes 90 seconds and is more accurate than a blood test in detecting your caratenoid antioxidant levels.


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.
