Antioxidants are the Antidote

Free radicals speed up the ageing process and can have a negative affect our health. Antioxidants are the body’s primary defense against this destructive force. The following quote is from Dr. Lester Packer, the “Father of Antioxidants”. Watch the video to see several scientists explain how a new scanner works to measure your antioxidant score and why this test may be able help you change the way you age.

Don’t underestimate the threat free radicals pose to our health. Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer to cataracts. In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the ageing process itself. By controlling free radicals, antioxidants can make the difference between life and death, as well as influence how fast and how well we age.

~ Dr Lester Packer, Head of Packer Laboratory, Dept of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California at Berkeley


We have all wondered if we will age well and live a long and healthy life. Now we have the chance to find out. Below is a 5-minute video on the importance of antioxidants in the body, and explains the science behind a test that can be completed by a 'Bio-Photonic Scanner'. The Bio-Photonic Scanner is the result of over $20 million of research and development.

Our understanding of antioxidants and their effect on overall health has dramatically increased through the use of the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner. Since its inception in 2003, millions of people have been empowered to make better life choices through the personalized feedback they receive from the scanner.
