At Bergen Optometry, we care about more than just your eye health. We care about your overall well being. That’s why we’re pleased to offer Wellness Consultations, utilizing the latest in advanced health scanning technology brought to you by the innovators at Pharmanex.
Every day, humans are exposed to countless free radicals. Over time, these free radicals can cause cell damage and lead to serious health concerns later in life, including premature aging. Antioxidants are the body’s first defense against free radicals. But while our bodies naturally generate some antioxidants, health experts believe that additional sources may provide greater protection.
The patented S3 BioPhotonic Scanner is a cutting-edge tool that can non-invasively measure a patient’s overall antioxidant levels. Understanding your antioxidant status can help you determine which supplements to take, as well as how to better achieve targeted improvements to your diet and lifestyle.
The S3 scanner emits a safe, low-energy blue light. By placing the palm of your hand in front of this light, the scanner will automatically measure your body’s carotenoid levels. Within minutes, you will have your official Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS), which directly correlates to your antioxidant status.
Understanding the antioxidant levels in your body can help provide the motivation and empowerment you need to improve your overall health. Our experienced staff can then work with you to recommend various supplements and other supportive wellness products. Your SCS will also help you make more informed decisions around your dietary habits and lifestyle choices.
