It is an honor to have one unit myself which was provided by the company~ I would say it was not an easy journey, however with the persistence and with a heart to help people and loved ones, it is all worth it~
Many of my loved ones and friends were able to measure where their general health stand and it gave them a reminder to always be kind and take good care of their bodies~
I would like to thank Nu Skin for their innovation and products which helped many individuals around the world. This is a good platform to provide people who wish to be their own boss, however capital is one of the bigger issue when it comes to starting a business. With the marketing plan and the awesome products which given my health back, I am proud to be a user of this product and of course… to venture into this business!
WHAT IS THE S3 SCANNER?
LIGHT, INNOVATED The patented Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is a cutting edge testing tool that non-invasively measures carotenoid levels in living tissue, providing an immediate indication of a person’s overall antioxidant levels. Everyone can instantly know their own antioxidant status. This empowers individuals to make improvements to their diet and lifestyle, and helps them make an informed decision on which supplements are properly formulated to impact their antioxidant health.
HOW DOES THE SCANNER WORK? The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s first measuring tool that gives you a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS)—immediate evidence of carotenoid antioxidant activity in your body. By placing the palm of your hand in front of the scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light, within seconds you will obtain a reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin—your Skin Carotenoid Scores (SCS)—which has been scientifically correlated to overall antioxidant status.
The technology of the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is based on an optical method known as Resonant Raman Spectroscopy, which has been used for many years in research laboratories. The Scanner measures carotenoid levels in human tissue at the skin surface using optical signals. These signals identify the unique molecular structure of carotenoids, allowing their measurement without interference by other molecular substances and providing the person being measured with their own SCS.
In less than one minute you can find out if your diet, lifestyle and supplements provide the antioxidant protection you need for promoting health.
“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

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 whether your supplements are actually working for you.
THE FREE RADICAL PROBLEM
Each day we are exposed to free radicals—many of the physical effects we call aging are a result of free radical damage, and no matter how healthy you try to be, you receive free radical damage every single day.
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 is when you slice an apple and it turns brown. This natural process is called oxidation. As oxygen interacts with cells of any type – an apple slice, for example-oxidation occurs.
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 sources of antioxidants may provide added protection against a growing onslaught
of free radical invaders.
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 your effects to free radicals by doing the following:
WHAT ARE CAROTENOIDS?
Carotenoids are an important category of antioxidants; 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.
