My Antioxidant Reading

Antioxidants are nutrients found in brightly coloured fruit and vegetables particularly in the skins; they can slow down the oxidative damage to the cells in our body caused by free radical damage.

We need antioxidants in our daily diet for optimal health, to help prevent cancer, and a range of other metabolic health problems including Alzheimer’s, cognitive impairment and cardiovascular disease. The antioxidants found in fruit and vegetables give us protection – the brighter the fruit/veg, the higher the antioxidant levels. Blackcurrants have the highest levels, with carrots, cherries, peppers and blueberries also containing high amounts.

To be honest, I didn’t really know anything about antioxidants and free radicals or why the government and doctors etc are saying we need to eat 5 portions of fresh fruit and veg daily. I also did not really know the reasons why supplements might be good for me, so I decided I needed to look into this.

Portion sizes

In actual fact, the amount of fruit and veg we need to consume daily to keep us healthy is between 10-14 – this is a huge amount and nowhere near what I was eating. Then I looked into what a portion size actually is – apparently it’s 80 grams of fruit or veg.

In easier to understand terms, one portion =

  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 apple
  • 1 pear
  • ½ grapefruit
  • 8 cauliflower florets
  • 3 tablespoons peas
  • 1 banana
  • 2 broccoli spears
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 large cabbage leaves

So, in order to eat 10 portions daily you would need to eat the equivalent of this list every day!

For most of this this is just not going to happen

The other way, of course, to get the antioxidants we need is through supplements. And whilst taking supplements is great, how do we know they are working? And to what level?

For this reason, I had never taken supplements. All the adverts say you should have this or that, but I was never really sure what my body needs or how to know if they are were working and benefitting my health?

After some research, I was introduced to Pharmanex and the biophotonic scanner. Here was a piece of Nobel prize-winning technology that could give me the answers I was looking for.

I knew my diet isn’t dreadful. I cook all meals from scratch (well, most of them), have no fried foods, eat some fruit and veg daily, have good skin and am not often ill. I don’t smoke, don’t drink over the recommended levels for alcohol, do a small amount of exercise and feel OK. I expected my scan reading to be average. I paid my £20 fee, was given a comprehensive talk on the company and all the benefits, then I put my hand on the machine and was scanned.

Well I got a big wakeup call

The scan took 90 seconds, was painless, non-intrusive and a live skin reading is more accurate than a blood or urine sample. When it comes to the readings, blue (over 50,000) is the optimal. I had hoped to be in the green but to my horror I was in the orange zone, at only 24,000.

I was shocked to say the least. I thought I was doing all the right things and yet the results told a different story. What should I do now?

Could I possibly eat all the extra fruit and veg daily I needed to increase my score and increase my health?

I didn’t think I could do that unless I was eating constantly.

So, what was my alternative?

I was shown the Pharmanex supplements that are 100% bioavailable and would give the daily dose of 14 fruits and veg in 2 daily servings could offer me the protection I needed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These supplements are scientifically validated, formulated to increase your antioxidant levels and have a money back guarantee.

What did I have to lose?

I signed up to have the lifepak supplements delivered straight to me on a monthly basis, and then booked in for my free scan 90 days later.

Taking the supplements was easy, a pack in the morning then a second pack in the evening. I did look at my diet and managed a few more fruits and veg each week but not many.

My 90 days was up and I went for my free second scan. If my antioxidant levels had not increased I would get all my money back from the company.

I did not get my money returned but I did get a big jump in my antioxidant levels from 24,000 to 39,000

I was ecstatic, in just 90 days my reading had jumped up and I was now on the way to having a much healthier and protected body.

This first scan was done 4 years ago and I have been on the supplements ever since.

Last year the scanner was made easier to use and only takes 30 seconds then your reading is emailed to you straight away.

Over the years depending on my stress levels (I have a daughter who needs extra support), the readings have gone up and down but for the last year have always been between 45,000 – 54,000. I rarely get colds, have never had the flu and feel good. I cannot imagine stopping these life savers. Every month I am entitled to a free antioxidant scan and it is great knowing my levels.

I recently scanned a personal trainer who exercises daily, eats well and has a healthy lifestyle. He thought his scan would be high and he would be well protected. He was not. Due to all the daily exercise, he was putting a big strain on his body and at a scan level of just 28,000 has had to think seriously about the results.

I also scanned a vegan, his scan was 85,000 – well over average so I guess his lifestyle is working for him!

Don’t leave your health to chance or wait until you become unwell. If you would like to find out more about the scanner and or to get yourself scanned and find our your Antioxidant Reading, please do get in touch.
