Frequently Asked Questions
biozoom is the only tracker worldwide for well-being status utilizing a validated algorithm for monitoring the antioxidant level. It tells you how good you are protected against risks for your well-being status and early aging processes. Nutrition and lifestyle have an essential impact on your antioxidant level. biozoom helps you to bring your nutrition and lifestyle in a reasonable balance, so that you stay young and fit.
The measuring device uses light sensors. During the measurement, light is irradiated into your thenar. The reflected light contains information about biomarkers that are crucial for your antioxidant level. These information are evaluated by biozoom through a validated algorithm and presented and explained on an easy-to-understand scale.
The measurement with biozoom is completely harmless. Through a LED, light is irradiated into the thenar. The light impulses are the only energy that occurs during the scanning process.
During the measurement light is irradiated into the thenar. From the beginning of the measurement to the presentation of the results it only takes less than a minute.
Natural antioxidants are vitamins, mineral nutrients and phytochemicals. Primarily, they occur within fresh fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants are also known as radical scavengers that protect us against their destructive power.
There are many kinds of antioxidative substances. Below, we present you a few of them.
- Beta carotene is an antioxidant that is transformed by the body into retinol and retinoic acid. Retinol is important for your sight, retinoic acid supports the cell growth
- Lutein is an antioxidant that supports your sight
- Lycopene is an antioxidant that gives fruits and vegetables their red color. Numerous studies imply its protective impact on the body.
- Selene is a mineral that is used to create antioxidative enzymes inside your body. These enzymes prevent cell damages, stimulate the production of antibodies and protect your body against toxins
- Vitamin C protects bones, gristle, muscles and blood vessels and supports the assimilation of iron
- Vitamin E protects your cells from free radicals. It supports the formation of red blood cells and helps assimilating vitamin K
- Beta carotene: carrots, bananas, peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums, salads, tomatoes, spinach, green cabbage, melons, papayas, mangos, oatmeal, peas, and bell peppers
- Lutein: carrots, pumpkins, spinach, green leafy vegetables, oranges, and yellow bell peppers
- Lycopene: tomatoes, water melons, and pink or red grapefruits
- Selene: Brazil nuts, walnuts, garlic, brown rice, and whole-grain bread
- Vitamin C: asparagus, berries, broccoli, cabbages, melons, honey, lemons, oranges, grain, kiwis, potatoes, spinach, and tomatoes
- Vitamin E: wheat germ oil, almonds, sunflower pits, sunflower oil, thistle oil, hazelnuts, peanut butter, peanuts, corn, spinach, broccoli, soy oil, kiwi, and mango
Free radicals are molecules that lack an electron. In order to get this electron, free radicals attack and destroy healthy cells in your body. Free radicals lead, e. g., to early skin aging.
When too many free radicals arise or our body is protected by too few antioxidants, we get into oxidative stress.
- irradiation of sunlight on the skin
- occupational and private stress
- insufficient consumption of fruits and vegetables
- stress by unbalanced exercising
- lack of sleep
