BioPhotonic Breakdown: What Exactly Does the Scanner Measure?
In our first article, Measure Your Health with the BioPhotonic Scanner, we discussed an overview of how the scanner works and what you as a patient can expect during a scan.
This article will explore the more scientific mechanics of the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner and what exactly is happening during your quick, two-minute scan.
As mentioned before, the BioPhotonic Scanner measures the level of carotenoid activity in the body. These specialized antioxidant molecules are primarily responsible for the deep colors in fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids are also vital for assisting other micronutrients repair damaged cells to help prevent cancer and to keep your skin looking young and healthy.
The foundation of the BioPhotonic Scanner technology is an optical method known as the Resonance Raman Spectroscopy. A well-established technique in the scientific community, Physicist C.V. Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for his study on resonance spectroscopy in 1930.
Working on the principle of light, the Scanner is designed to produce narrow beams of blue light. The fundamental particle of light is photons. By nature, each photon has different wavelengths which can be represented by visual colors. The Scanner’s blue light has a wavelength of 473 nanometers (nm).
When this blue light comes in contact with a carotenoid, it turns green. The 473 nm photon becomes a 510 nm photon. The only molecule that can cause this reaction is a carotenoid.
The number of photons generated is proportional to the concentration of carotenoids in the skin. The BioPhotonic Scanner counts the green photons to provide you with your Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS). This score provides a useful index of the body’s antioxidant status and levels of oxidative stress.
Carotenoid levels do not change on a daily basis. They are reflective of your long-term lifestyle choices, diet, and genetic disposition.
Initial scans are important to assess your current carotenoid status and to determine if you’re consuming an adequate amount of antioxidants. If you find your score isn’t where you know it should be, Treasure Coast Primary Care can help you boost your SCS with LifePak Nano dietary supplements.
These revolutionary supplement packets are guaranteed to effectively increase your body’s antioxidant levels and to raise your SCS. When paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise regime, you’ll be operating in optimum health in no time! Treasure Coast Primary Care offers these supplements in-office with a money back guarantee to increase your carotenoid levels.
Scans are recommended every 6-8 weeks, allowing your body adequate time for the powerful LifePak supplements to begin cleansing out harmful cells and to repair existing damage.
