Validity of Biophotonic Scanner

July 10, 2017 | By | No Comments

Over the last month I have received a few questions from MRT clients regarding the validity of the technology we are using to test antioxidant levels. The main questions asked were, “How can we be sure these results are accurate?”.
In this month’s newsletter, I would like to address the validity of the Biophotonic Scanner, which is the technology we are using at MRT to test clients antioxidant score.
Quick, Accurate, Affordable & Non-Invasive Results
 
With the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner, we are able to provide our clients with a quick, accurate, and affordable method for measuring antioxidant levels. The Biophotonic Scanner provides individuals with an actionable benchmark for nutritional health and can be used to predict risk factors for diseases caused by oxidative stress.

 

Unlike other testing methods, which are expensive, painful, and time consuming, the Biophotonic Scanner is the FIRST technology to provide a quick, painless, and affordable method for testing antioxidant levels.

 

There are 3 methods other than the scanner that I am aware of for testing your antioxidant levels. The first is a urine test. The urine test is more expensive than the Biophotonic Scanner and it does not provide you with a concise antioxidant score. Rather, it provides you with a ‘pass or fail’ style of scoring. The urine test is also far less accurate since it is not measuring the levels of nutrients that actually end up being absorbed by cells.
The second method is a blood test. Similar the urine test, a blood sample provides you with information regarding the levels of nutrients passing through your blood, but it does not provide information regarding cell absorption.
The third method is the gold stand for accurate results, yet it is far more painful and expensive. This method requires the removal of a significant piece of skin tissue, which is then analyzed in a lab.
According to dozens of peer-reviewed research publications (which you can view here) the Biophotonic Scanner provides clear benefits over the other available testing methods.
  • It is the most affordable method for assessing overall antioxidant levels. We only charge $10 for testing here, other healthcare providers charge $40-$50 for the same test.
  • It provides immediate results. Testing takes less than one minute.
  • It is painless, compared to other methods. The urine test is also painless, but it is also far less accurate. The skin sample, which is the most accurate test happens to be expensive and very painful.
  • The Biophotonic Scanner is just as accurate as skin sample testing. After scrutinized testing, dozens of peer-reviewed research publications have confirmed that the results of the Biophotonic Scanner are just as accurate as the most concise testing methods.
In 2000 The Journal of Investigative Dermatology published research confirming that the Biophotonic Scanners method for measuring antioxidant levels matched the measurements obtained from skin samples. These results established the Biophotonic Scanner as the leading method obtaining rapid, accurate, and affordable antioxidant scores.
The Biophotonic Scanner is an incredible, cutting-edge technology that we are fortunate enough to have access to at MRT. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share this technology with my clients. My hope is that clients will use the Biophotonic Scanner to learn more about their health and to make nutritional changes that enhance their antioxidant scores.

Antioxidant Testing Results – May 2017

June 9, 2017 | By | No Comments

We had yet another great turn out for Antioxidant Testing.
We even had one client score 50,000! Way to go!
Holding up my end of the deal, I paid for her antioxidant test. As promised, I will continue to honor my commitment to pay for anyone’s test who scores 50,000 or higher.
This month’s average antioxidant test score was 32,000. Again, this number is above average. Unfortunately, it is still far below recommended antioxidant score of 50,000 or higher.
One of my clients this month asked me if age was a determining factor for antioxidant scores. The simple answer is no. I was happy to share with this client that their age has zero impact on their antioxidant levels.
Just to prove my point, I compared the average adults and children who tested with us this month. We scanned 6 children, whose ages ranged from 2 years old to 16 years old. The overall client score was 32,000, the average adult score was 33,000 and the average children’s score was 29,000, which is 3,000 lower than the adults score. I believe this not only reconfirms that age is not a factor, but it also shows what I have been afraid of, revealing that children may have the lowest antioxidant levels due to the amount of processed foods they are consuming. So for all of my clients with children, I would suggest you bring them in to get tested.
I was happy to see such a great turn out this month, and I applaud my clients for taking steps towards a healthier, happier life. Want to gain more control over your health?

Get Your Antioxidant Levels Tested!

May 19, 2017 | By | No Comments

We had yet another great weekend of antioxidant testing. This months average antioxidant score of 31,000 was down from last months score of 37,000. The lowest score was 15,000. The highest score this month was 52,000, which happened to be my score. Each month I will be rescanning my antioxidant scores, as I continue working towards my personal goal of 60,000.
Everyone who tests their antioxidant scores, should be striving to reach a level of 50,000 or higher. 50,000 is considered the minimum level for optimal antioxidant health. As I have mentioned before, if you score 50,000 or higher I will pay for your antioxidant test. In addition I have decided to also donate $10 to Crossroads Safe House, for every client that scores of 50,000.
Crossroads Safe House provides shelter, safety, and assistance to abused men, women and children within the Fort Collins community.
We are continuing to offer antioxidant testing on a monthly basis for only $10. I encourage each and every one of you to be proactive about your health and join us at one of our next testing days. To reserve your spot, call our office at (970) 449 – 9757.

Enjoy Sun, While Boosting Your Vitamin D Levels

May 7, 2017 | By | No Comments

Did you know that Vitamin D is one of the most essential nutrients for our bodies, yet an estimated 50% of American’s are deficient in it?

Thousands of studies have been done on the health effects of vitamin D, and research shows it is involved in the biology of all cells and tissues in your body. Most fascinating to me are the dozens of studies showing that raising your vitamin D levels can significantly reduce your risk of cancer.

Most recently, a randomized clinical trial by researchers at Creighton University, found vitamin D and calcium supplementation lowered participants’ overall cancer risk by 30 percent. Another study discovered that when you increase your serum vitamin D levels to 40 ng/mL or higher, your risk for cancer diminishes by 67 percent. They found that most cancers occurred in people with a vitamin D blood level between 10 and 40 ng/mL. The optimal level for cancer protection was identified as being between 40 and 60 ng/mL.

A primary consideration when it comes to vitamin D is to get your level checked, ideally twice a year, in the middle of the summer and winter, when your level is at its highest and lowest. What you’re aiming for is a level between 40 and 60 ng/mL year-round.

It is a safe bet that most of you reading this right now haven’t been getting enough vitamin D, even if you regularly take supplements.

It has been proven that natural sun exposure is by far the best way to boost your vitamin D levels. Unfortunately, we all know that too much sun can lead to pre-mature aging, skin damage and even disease. So how do you get the most out of the sun while still protecting yourself?

Even the low SPF sunscreens can prevent your body from turning the Ultraviolet B rays in Vitamin D. In order to get your daily dose of D, you need 15-20 minutes of unprotected sun exposure.That’s right, don’t lather on that sunscreen just yet. If you have sensitive skin and are afraid you will burn easily you can decrease your sun exposure to just 10-15 minutes.

Getting your daily dose of D will keep you happy and healthy, but don’t forget to put on your sunscreen after those first 20 minutes have passed. To help prevent sunburn, make sure to reapply every two-hours and use a brand you trust.

Tips to Increase Daily Antioxidant Intake

April 7, 2017 | By | No Comments

1. Properly prepare your fruits and vegetables
The way you prepare your fruits and vegetables can significantly affect the level of nutrients in you consume. Cooking can destroy the nutrients in some fruits and vegetables, while increasing bio-availability in others. When cooked for 30-minutes, tomatoes antioxidant levels have been shown to increase up to 35%. On the other hand, bell peppers are best consumed raw because they lose a significant amount of nutrients when cooked.
Tips for maximizing antioxidant content of cooked veggies:
  • Don’t peel
  • Minimize chopping
  • Don’t soak in water pre-cooking, water soluable nutrients like vitamin C leach into the water
  • Cook quickly at a high heat rather than slowly on a lower heat
  • Don’t cook in copper pots (this reduces the amount of vitamin C)
  • Boiling and steaming are the best methods for maintaining antioxidant levels for most vegetables
2. Taste the rainbow!
Eating an assortment of colorful fruits and vegetables provides you with a variety of different antioxidants. Antioxidants are often responsible for the variety of colors we see among fruits and vegetables. By diversifying the colors of your food, you are providing your body with a spectrum of nutrients it needs for optimal wellness.
3. Drink ’em up.
Green drinks, smoothies, and green tea are also great sources of antioxidants. Juicing is an easy way to consume your recommended daily serving of fruits and vegetables. Just beware of your sugar intake when it comes to fruit juice and smoothies. Make sure to stay away from your standard, store bought juices like orange juice and apple juice. These drinks tend to be high in sugar.  Matcha green tea is also especially rich in antioxidants. You can drink matcha green tea alone, or try adding it to your smoothies and juice.
4. Eats nuts!
Some may be surprised to learn that nuts and seeds are actually incredibly rich in antioxidants. So, when it comes to snacking between meals try a handful of brazil nuts, almonds, or sunflower seeds. Brazil nuts are a key source of selenium, which is important for brain health, while almonds and sunflower seeds are great sources of vitamin E.

March Antioxidant Testing: The results are in!

April 4, 2017 | By | No Comments

We had a great turnout for our first month of antioxidant testing, and the overall results were fantastic!
Statistically, 80% of Americans antioxidant scores are between 10,000 and 29,000. Based on the results of last month’s antioxidant tests, our average client score was 37,000. This score far exceeds the national average… but, then again I expected that from my clientele! Way to go!
I am proud that our scores were well above the national average. However, as great as those numbers look, only one person scored over 50,000.
50,000 is considered the minimum level for optimal nutritional health. It was shocking for many people who considered themselves incredibly healthy, to see how low their antioxidant scores actually were. As you can tell, the vast majority of us have work to do in order to improve our nutritional health.
Focusing on improving our antioxidant scores is incredibly important. Antioxidants are our bodies natural defense against health conditions like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. If we are proactive about taking care of our bodies, we can help prevent these conditions.
Recently released statistics from the American Cancer Society stated that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. Although these statistics are startling, the American Institute for Cancer Research says that nearly one-third of all cancers can be prevented through healthy diet, proper weight, and physical activity.
We have the power to be proactive about our health and the Biophotonic Antioxidant Scanner empowers us with the knowledge we need in order to make healthy lifestyle adjustments. For those of you that tested their antioxidant scores last month, congratulations on taking the first steps to educate yourself and make positive changes in your life.
We will continue to offer antioxidant testing on a monthly basis for only $10. I encourage each and every one of you to be proactive about your health and join us at one of our next testing days. To reserve your spot, call our office at (970) 449 – 9757.
Upcoming Antioxidant Testing Dates:
April 15th          10 am – 12 pm
May 20th           10 am – 12 pm
Over 80% of Americans antioxidant scores are between 10,000 – 29,000. If you score over 50,000 I (Mark) Will Pay For Your Scan!
