Antioxidant Testing

Now antioxidant levels can be read without fuss! Previously it was necessary to use blood tests, urine samples and skin grafts to find out levels of antioxidants in the body. Now non invasive technology is here. The Pharmanex Bio photonic scanner is the ultimate tool to assess antioxidant status in the skin tissue. What are we assessing? Carotenoid levels in particular, which make up an important branch of antioxidants found in the human body. It has been determined by clinical trials that diet is indeed a key factor in antioxidant status, particularly the consumption of fruit and vegetables.

The biophotonic scanner is invaluable as a monitoring tool, and Morkare Health & Wellness Clinic makes full use of this technology. All clients are scanned on a regular basis as part of the basic treatment plan. If your health is improving by following the suggestions of the practitioner, your score will be improving too. It is a nice way to confirm that the strategies are working.

The scanner is also useful to assess the need for supplementation. In an ideal world we all should be blue on the scale without the need for supplementing, but this will depend on a few factors.

Our goal is to provide optimum levels of nutrients to the body, and our challange is to always work within the budget of our clients to source good clean food and affordable supplements if required. For more information on the scanner.

The following chart is used as a guideline to indicate antioxidant levels, with red indication poor levels and blue showing excellent levels available in the skin for the body to access. The role of antioxidants is to defeat free radical damage.
