How do I protect myself from free radicals?

To protect yourself from free radicals, you should develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. You can limit the effects of free radicals by doing the following:





 

What are carotenoids?

Carotenoids are an important category of antioxidants; they are primarily responsible for the reds, oranges and yellows we see in fruits and vegetables. In our bodies non-carotenoid antioxidants rely on carotenoids to defend and replenish themselves so that they can continue their cell protective work.

“Our understanding of antioxidants and their effect on overall health has dramatically increased through the use of the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner. Since its inception in 2003, thousands of people have been empowered to make better life choices through the personalized feedback they receive from the Scanner.”

Joseph Chang PH.D Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President, NU Skin Enterprises

 

The Free Radical Problem

Each day we are exposed to free radicals. Many of the physical effects we call aging are a results of free radical damage. You receive free radical damage every single day, no matter how healthy you try to be. When left unchecked, free radical damage to your cells accumulates and can lead to serious health concerns later in life. In fact, free radical damage can cause premature aging and is a large factor in the deterioration of health over time.

Free Radical Damage

A visual example of free radical damage happens when you slice an apple and it turns brown. This natural process is called oxidation. Oxidation occurs as oxygen interacts with cells of any type – such as an apple slice.

How do I know my supplements are working?

The answer is the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner. Pharmanex was the first nutritional supplement company to provide you with a non-invasive, fast, and convenient way to determine your antioxidant status – and to learn if your supplements are actually working for you.

Nature’s Solution

Antioxidants are your first defense against free radicals – they freely share their electrons and stop the degenerative chain reaction of free radicals. Our bodies naturally generate some antioxidants, however, new research shows additional source of antioxidants may provide added protection against a growing onslaught of free radical invaders.
