How healthy are you really? Why knowing your antioxidant score is important.

You eat right, you exercise but how healthy are you really? Unfortunately, how we look on the outside doesn’t always tell the whole story. Knowing your antioxidant levels can give you insight as to how healthy your body is on the inside. And we all know it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? Antioxidants protect our bodies against the damaging effects of free radicals.

Free radicals are like robbers which are deficient in energy. They attack and snatch energy from healthy cells to satisfy themselves. Not cool, free radicals….not cool.

Antioxidants are your body’s best defense against the ravaging effects of free radicals. Having an adequate antioxidant score can ensure that your cells are protected, reducing your risk of cancer, premature aging, skin conditions, etc.

So, how do you find out how healthy you REALLY are?

At INTENSITY, we use the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner to give you an accurate reading of how many carotenoid antioxidants are in your skin. The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s first measuring tool to give you a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) – immediate evidence of antioxidant activity in your body. By placing the palm of your hand in front of the scanners safe, low-energy blue light, within seconds you will obtain a reading of the antioxidant levels in your skin (your SCS), which has been scientifically correlated to your total antioxidant status.

Curious about YOUR SCS? Come to Intensity and I will assist you in finding (and improving!) your Skin Carotenoid Score. Schedule a personal training session with me here!
