Eye Disease is a function of aging.
Older patients have them, younger patients don't…
Antioxidants slowdown the aging process reducing the development of cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes, cancer & heart disease. We can now measure your patients antioxidant levels to determine their susceptibility to these diseases, provide scientifically proven treatments for maximum nutritional absorption while increasing revenue.
The BioPhotonic Scanner measures the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin-and prove the effectiveness of your supplements in improving your overall antioxidant health.
Placing the palm of your hand in front of the BioPhotonic 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.
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
Doctors recommend supplements to slow the aging process and help prevent AMD, but (until now) there was no way to accurately and objectively quantify the results without resorting to expensive blood tests. The BioScan Biophotonic Scanner technology will diagnose carotenoid antioxidants levels in the body in a 90 second objective non evasive scan. It is the size of a bread box with a laptop computer attached.
Carotenoid antioxidants are your disease (cancer, heart disease, arthritis…) prevention cells in your living tissue and also protect you against oxidative stress. Based on this score will give you a good idea how to change for the better or maintain current status.
“The amount of antioxidants that you maintain in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live.”

“The scanner has positively affected both my patients health, and the financial well-being for my practice. This is a critical biomarker that enables us to recommend treatment which prevents or slows the progression of eye disease. This private pay subspecialty adds significant bottom line revenue that will not be affected by cuts in insurance reimbursements.

“The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is an invaluable validated objective instrument for quickly and effortlessly determining a surrogate measure of veggie and fruit consumption-so important to Macula Health”
Stuart Richer OD,PhD
“We implemented the Bioscan and it's treatment programs into our practice over 2 years ago. I nutritional lie detector and permits us to objectively assess patient absorption of key carotenoid antioxidants that contribute to better ocular and systemic health.”

Decreased reimbursements under the current “sick care” medical model has caused us to worry about future revenues while, most importantly, maintaining the quality of care we are used to providing. If we could address the “cause” to our illnesses, rather than just treat the symptoms, we will set ourselves apart from our competitors and practice a true “health care” model.
The science is based on first how to accurately and efficiently diagnose carotenoid antioxidant levels that combat free radicals in your body that cause disease such as AMD, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, and cancer.
Both environmental and patient lifestyle can all create free radical damage: pollution, smoking, radiation, unbalanced diets, preservatives and additives in food, excessive body fat, mental stress and even strenuous exercise.
Many of the physical effects we call aging are caused by free radicals. 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.
EXAMPLE: Cut an apple in two halves what happens almost immediately, it starts to turn brown. Why? Free radicals in the air attack the oxidative properties and starts to break it down, and just think that is the air you breath every day. Now take some lemon(antioxidant) and squeeze it on one side. All the sudden it stops oxidizing protecting it from free radicals in the air while the other sides continue to turn brown.
Science tells us that eye diseases are an aging disease. The older we get the more prevalent diseases occurs. If we can slow down the aging process than we can control and even prevent these types of diseases.
Carotenoids – a family of powerful antioxidants: (Beta Carotene, Lycopene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin & Astaxanthin…) prevention cells in your living tissue and also protect you against oxidative stress. If we knew how to quantify their absorption, we could guarantee all antioxidants absorption, making Carotenoids levels the highest overall indicator of antioxidant levels.
Our body's health depends on our cells' health. To slow down aging, limit illness and prevent disease we must protect and feed our cells properly. Cells are made up of atoms. Healthy atoms have "paired" electrons (yellow dots). When healthy cells replicate they make an exact copy. FREE RADICALS, atoms missing an electron, steal electrons from surrounding atoms and they alter or destroy cells. Cells that die and cells that replicate in a damaged state are the cause or contribute to premature aging, sickness and diseases such as cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, and many others.
Out of the 500 Carotenoids in the body, only about 50 are found in the diet, and only 10 will accumulate in the blood stream. Carotenoids are poorly absorbed in the body because the length of the molecule. Carotenoids are the Biomarker for antioxidant absorption.
We need fat soluble particles to transfer antioxidants however fat soluble nutrients clump up and make it impossible to send the proper nutrients to the cellular wall. NANO solves this in a patented process that escorts the fat soluble molecules to the cellular wall for GUARANTEED absorption.
Vitamins that contain good omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to be very effective in the fight against dry eyes. These nutritional supplements improve moist membranes throughout the body, so the quality of your tears actually improves after about 30 days. Omeag-3’s have also been proven to defending your body against certain cancers,heart disease, joint function and mobility, supports emotional wellness and promotes healthy skin.
Fish Oils, also know as omega-3 fatty acids, are dietary nutrients important for the healthy function of key structures and systems in the body. Two particularly important categories of fatty acids classified as essential for health are the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids can only be obtained from your diet. Typically, foods that contain or are prepared with vegetable oils are rich in omega-6 fatty acids while the primary dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids is fatty.
Krill are a small ocean-going crustacean that contains a high concentration of EPA and DHA in a unique phospholipid form that passes through the harsh digestive system with DHA intact.
Fish Oil vs. Krill Oil: – In fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids are found in the triglyceride form, whereas in krill oil, omega-3's are hooked up in a double chain phospholipid structure. The fats in our own cell walls are in the phospholipid form. Attached to the EPA leg of the phospholipid is a molecule of astaxanthin, an extremely potent anti-oxidant. The phospholipid structure of the EPA and DHA in krill oil makes them much more absorbable and allows for a much easier entrance into the mitochondria and the cellular nucleus. In addition to EPA and DHA, krill oil contains a complex phospholipid profile including phosphatidylcholine, a potent source of stress-reducing choline, which also acts as a natural emulsifier.
Marine Omega is blended with powerful Krill Oil for maximum effectiveness. Krill is the most potent form of DHA and EPA protected by antioxidants to assure no oxidative breakdowns found in many standard Omega 3's fish oil MarineOmega was the first supplement on the market to introduce superior quality marine krill oil blended with Omega 3's. This unique krill blend passes though the brain-blood barrier with ease, making it a logically beneficial and bioavailable source not found in other fish oil products.
