Picked Fresh is Best!

We harvest our produce within a day of selling it to ensure that our produce is not only at it’s peak in taste, but is also at its peak in nutrition! Food that is trucked from across the country or world to a grocery store or roadside stand is often lacking in nutrients due to being picked when not fully ripe as well as losing some nutrients in the time it takes to be shipped.

e-antioxidants In addition to vitamins and minerals, our food provides with us with important phytochemicals like antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that come from plants and animals and have extra electrons that are donated to free radicals, which are unstable molecules because they are missing an electron. When antioxidants are not available, free radicals attack healthy cells to get this electron.

“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 aging 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.” –  Lester Packer, Ph.D. – Head of Packer Labs at the University of California, Berkeley.

We are excited to have a scientific tool  to very accurately, quickly and affordably measure the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin and prove the effectiveness of your diet and supplements in improving your overall antioxidant health.  This scanner uses Nobel prize winning Raman Spectroscopy to obtain this measurement.

6281532_orig This quick, non-invasive and very accurate test  provides a more accurate and reliable biomarker of your overall antioxidant health status and makes you aware of the antioxidant levels in your body, giving you the push you need to improve your overall antioxidant health through lifestyle changes, improved diet, and/or supplementation.

What does the Scanner do?
Place the palm of your hand in front of the scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light laser, and you will obtain an immediate reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin: your Skin Carotenoid Score.

Why should I be scanned?
By measuring the stable level of carotenoid antioxidants in your skin and generating your Skin Carotenoid Score, the scanner provides a more accurate and reliable biomarker of your overall antioxidant health status than other methods of measuring antioxidants. Getting your Skin Carotenoid Score makes you aware of the antioxidant levels in your body-and gives you the push you need to improve your overall antioxidant health.

The antioxidant defense system can be measured by various tests: skin carotenoids, serum ORAC, serum antioxidant levels, urinary MDA, breathe pentane, serum 8-OHdG, serum lipid peroxides, etc. Based on the data we have obtained so far about the BioPhotonic Scanner, the Skin Caratanoid Score measurement correlates well with other antioxidant status tests, has the site-of-action advantage, and is by far the least invasive and most convenient test around.

Curious? Watch how the audience does when given this scan on the Dr. Oz Show!
