What is the Biophotonic Scanner?

Researchers at the University of Utah and Harvard alongside the team of dedicated phd scientists at Pharmanex, developed the  BioPhotonic Scanner back in 2003.   This is a small device that sends out a wavelength of blue light into the palm of your hand and when that blue light “hits” carotenoid pigments in the basal layer of the skin, it changes the light to a green colour and measures how much green comes back.

The result the scanner records is what is called a “skin carotenoid score” somewhere in the range of <10,000 to 60,000 photon units. These “photon units” correspond to the amount of carotenoid pigments in the skin layer.   This science is based on a complicated branch of optics called Raman Spectroscopy. Based on correlation studies, the biophotonic scanner actually reflects the overall health of the defence network inside your body.

The “average” scanner score is about 27,000.  A score in the range of 40,000 to 50,000 plus, photon units is considered excellent protection.

If you are under 40,000 what does that mean?

If you score less than 40,000 when we can you this can imply you are potentially at risk of health implications.

A careful review of the latest scientific evidence from many sources shows that the overwhelming majority of chronic degenerative diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, many forms of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and more have their origins in excess oxidative stress damaging the body.

Oxidative Stress is a condition that occurs inside your body, when there are too many free radicals and not enough antioxidants (unstable molecules that can attack and damage your cells and DNA)

Oxidative stress can cause significant damage to the very cells, tissues, organs and DNA of our body and this process plays a major role in the development of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, MS and more.

There is so much conflicting reports around and for example, we all think that LDL cholesterol (the so called “bad” cholesterol) is the major factor in the development of heart disease. But for years we have known that over half of all heart attack victims have normal cholesterol levels.

It is, in fact, the oxidation of the LDL cholesterol particle (by free radical damage) that initiates the very process of atherosclerosis by which plaque starts to build up inside the arterial wall. It is the oxidation of LDL cholesterol that turns it into the “bad” stuff. By taking antioxidants you can, in fact, minimise the oxidation of LDL, and lower your risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis.


Simple terms -oxidative stress

If you slice open an apple and leave just sitting, it begins to brown. This is a perfect example of oxidative stress.    The browning process is the result of free radicals in the air attacking the living tissue of the apple.   However if you put a squirt of lemon juice on it, it dramatically slows the browning process. That is because antioxidants in the lemon juice neutralise free radicals in the air and prevent them from damaging the cells and tissues of our body.

Do you have age spots? This is the same for “age spots” on the skin, this time the free radicals in the ultraviolet rays of the sun have begin to oxidise “brown” the living tissue of your skin itself.

When your skin carotenoid score is less than 40,000, think of yourself like the apple exposed to the air. You are not adequately protected against the free radicals that are constantly attacking your body.  Basically the free radicals within your body are winning and you are losing the battle against chronic degenerative diseases.

If your score is 40,000 or above, you are like the apple with lemon juice. It is as if your cells, organs, tissues and DNA are all saturated with lemon juice and protected against the damage that free radicals can cause to your body.


It is very difficult to accurately assess the level of oxidative stress on your body unless you have been scanned by our biophotonic scanner which measures back 3 months. That means, if you change your diet and supplementation today, it will take 6 to 12 weeks to see the full benefit of those changes.

Since the BioPhotonic Scanner measures your score in the stratum corneum layer of the living skin, it accurately reflects not only what you eat and supplement with but also how well those nutrients are absorbed into your GI tract and incorporated into your living cells. This score helps us to clearly determine whether your supplements and diet are working or not.

Depending on your dietary habits, supplementation and the capacity of your body to absorb carotenoids, your individual SCS may vary. Once you know your SCS, it is time to improve it by doing the following:

1.       Act on your diet by eating at least 5 to 10 servings of carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables each day as a minimum.

2.       Take care of yourself by applying a healthy dietary lifestyle.

3.       Supplement with the Scanner certified products, Lifepak+ and JVi. They are certified to help provide your body with an adequate amount of carotenoids. Discover them here >>>
