Protecting your health as you age
As we age, we start to see changes in our energy and overall vitality. From feeling stiff to forgetting people’s names, many people struggle to maintain a “pep” in their step, on both physical and mental levels.
The important role of cells
Scientists believe that our bodies contain around 75 to 100 trillion cells. Cells are the responsible for delivering structure, stability and energy for everything that you do.
Too small to see without a microscope, cells contain DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), which is the genetic information required for instructing certain cellular activities.
About cell regeneration
Mitochondria are the structures within cells that convert food and oxygen into energy. As we age, these mitochondria slow down or die, which impacts not only your energy, but your risks for diseases, like cancer and heart disease.
At the centre of the cell is called the nucleus. Within each cell, there are 25,000 genes that contain important information that drive the role of the cell.
Of these genes, 52 contain the protein that are the building blocks for the mitochondria. With the help of antioxidant support, these genes can make a big difference to your health.
Antioxidants to the rescue!
Carotenoids are a family of powerful antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables.
They are natural protective molecules that look to prevent attacks on a cellular level. They protect DNA in healthy cells, from the damage caused from the harmful free radicals that are from environmental factors, like cigarette smoke, fried foods and pollution.
There are many natural ingredients that can help protect the cells and restore they mitochondrial function back to youthful levels. Unfortunately, many of us do not consume the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables to meet our daily requirements.
How do we measure antioxidants on a cellular level?
We can measure the antioxidant levels in your body. With the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner, we are able to noninvasively measures carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin. In 90 seconds, you have a score that can identify your risk of free radical attacks, all by simply placing the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner’s safe LED light.
The scanner is based on science developed in conjunction with doctors and physicists at a several leading research universities. It can measure the source of aging, not the signs of aging. This technology can show you the impact of lifestyle changes and the benefits of daily supplements – so that results are verified.
From mental clarity to physical changes, this scanner can demonstrate the impact of change.
Once scanned, you receive a certified skin carotenoid score – giving you a personal reliable biomarker of your overall antioxidant health status.
Most importantly, once your scan is complete, you have a standard for future measurements. With lifestyle changes, you not only see your score go up, but you will be feeling better and energized
No one wants to lose the ability to focus and mental ability, but understanding how cells age is just the beginning of your path.
