What is your Score?

The score indicates the amount of carotenoids in your body. Carotenoids are powerful antioxidants that you get from eating colorful fruits and vegetables. They protect your cells from free radical damage and oxidation. You can see an example of oxidation when you slice open an apple. The rotting and decaying occurs within minutes. When you put lemon juice on an apple, the vitamin C, which is an antioxidant, will prevent this damage from occurring.

How does the technology work?

The Bioscanner uses Raman Spectroscopy technology which is a Physics Nobel Prize-winning technology recognized by scientific articles and studies. It is the world’s first measuring tool that gives you a score based on immediate evidence of carotenoid antioxidant activity in your body. By placing the palm of your hand in front of the scanner, your antioxidant status can be measured within seconds based on optical signals being transmitted. Given this information, you can find out if your current diet, lifestyle, body composition and supplements provide the right antioxidant protection you need for promoting optimal health!

What if my score is low?

Low scores may increase risk of cancer, diabetes, dementia, and autoimmune conditions. It also affects the eyes by increasing the risk of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Studies show a majority of Americans don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. Knowing your score will help determine if you are living a healthy lifestyle.

To increase your antioxidant score, we recommend Macuhealth Vitamins. It is the only supplement that contains the following antioxidants: Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin and Zeaxanthin in the same 10:10:2 ratio that makes up macular pigment. It’s also important to note that not all vitamins are equal. Macuhealth products have been tested by a third party for quality and safety. It has also been tested for potential contaminants in a good manufacturing practice (GMP) facility that exceeds government and industry standards. To shop for Macuhealth, click here.
