Press Release Body: Austin, Texas, January 30, 2008 - Ever wonder if you really are what you eat? The Quan Yin Center today introduces the BioPhotonic Scanner, a testing device that non-invasively measures the human body\'s level of carotenoid antioxidants, and lets you know if that apple a day really is keeping the doctor away. Antioxidants are essential disease-fighting nutrients, such as vitamins A and C, and beta-carotene, found in abundance in certain fruits and vegetables. However, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), most adults today do not consume the levels of antioxidants they need to keep a healthy lifestyle and prevent chronic disease. The BioPhotonic Scanner uses a proprietary laser technology to measure the Body Defense Score (BDS), allowing consumers to track and help maintain optimal levels of antioxidants, and help to keep in check their body\'s fight against disease-causing free radicals. The BioPhotonic Scanner will change the way that we, as humans, go about monitoring health. By measuring antioxidant levels in the tissue, my clients will finally have a tool that can provide affirmation that their supplements and healthy diets are making a difference. Developed by doctors, physicists and engineers at the University of Utah, the BioPhotonic Scanner is the world\'s first immediate and non-invasive method of measuring antioxidant activity in human tissue. By simply placing the palm of the hand in front of a low-energy blue light laser, clients obtain a reading of their own antioxidant level. When the purified blue laser light strikes the palm of the hand, it is slightly shifted toward a green light due to the chemical make up of the carotenoid antioxidant molecules. When a person\'s antioxidant levels are measured, the amount of reflected green light is gathered and assessed to produce a numeric reading - the BDS. This number correlates with levels of carotenoids - a powerful antioxidant - in the diet, blood and tissues. Since the scanner measures the major carotenoid antioxidants, the BDS is an important indicator of the body\'s overall antioxidant defense system. \"The fact is, with our busy lives, most of us do not eat right and free radicals are taking over in our cells,\" says Dr. Lester Packer, Professor and Senior Researcher at the University of California at Berkeley. \"Everyone should use the BioPhotonic Scanner to learn their optimal body defense score. Once you have your number, work to increase it and maintain it with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and vitamin supplements.\" In the past 12 months, several top-tier medical journals have published reports on the health benefit of antioxidants: Journal of the American Medical Association: Low levels of antioxidant vitamins may increase risk of several chronic diseases. Most people do not consume an optimal amount of vitamins by diet alone. June 2002. Journal of the American Medical Association: Diets rich in vitamins C and E may delay the onset of Alzheimer\'s disease. June 2002. Archives of Ophthalmology: Risk of Age-related Macular Degeneration can be lowered by about 25 percent when treated with a high-dose of vitamin C, E, beta-carotene and zinc. October 2001. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: Extremely high doses of some vitamins (including antioxidants) can help treat a variety of inheritable disease and slow the aging process. April 2002.
