Free antioxidant scan offered on March 8 and 9

Three independent distributors for Monavie are getting ready to offer people a free anti-oxidant scan at Elite Nutrition on March 8 and 9.

Three independent distributors for Monavie in Golden are getting ready to offer people a free anti-oxidant scan at Elite Nutrition on March 8 and 9.

“With the Monavie View Antioxidant Scanner you can quickly get a view of your general antioxidant levels by reading the flavonoids and carotenoids in their bodies,” said Linda Pecora.

The non-invasive scan, that takes about 10 seconds, allows the distributors to gauge a person’s antioxidant levels.

“It is going to tell you what is going on inside of your body,” said Gladys Neumann. She went on and said people sometimes forget they need to be healthy both on the inside and out.

“You need to eat fruits and vegetables, have less stress in your life and get a good quality of sleep. These things all contribute to the inside of your body being healthy,” she said.

The machine itself shines a light which reflects on the skin of a person’s finger. This scan reads the antioxidant levels in your skin. The information is then sent to the distributors’ iPhone or Android, and the client will be able to find out where their levels are.

“If you bite into an apple and leave the apple on the counter for five minutes, it will start to brown. That is the apple oxidizing. If you take that apple and dip it in lemon juice and sit it on the counter it will stop browning,” said owner of Elite Nutrition, Mike Pecora. “The lemon juice is the antioxidants to the apple which stops the apple from aging.”

A person can also decide to do a full scan for a small fee which will give more detailed information for the person tested.

“The full scan gives you an actual number on the life score system to show where you are on the antioxidant scale,” said Linda.

Anyone will be able to contact the distributors to receive their free scan.

“What we are trying to do is create an awareness for people of what their health levels are because it is a lifestyle choice. It is not only what you put in you body and if you exercise. There are air pollutants out there that get in our body that we do not have a choice about,” said Linda.

“People measure their weight and their body fat. This will measure your internal health,” said distributor Lynette Snopek.

The free scanning event will be happening from 12-7 p.m. on March 8 and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on March 9 at Elite Nutrition (407, 9th Ave. N.) The distributors will also be taking part in the Golden Spring Home & Lifestyle Show on April 26 and 27.
