The Science Behind LifeMeter


Studies show that specific carotenoids accumulate in the largest organ in the human body - the skin. The level of these nutrients reflects the intake of fruits and vegetables in the diet and the concentration of carotenoids in other tissues in the body, such as the retina and brain.

LifeMeter utilizes reflection spectroscopy to measure the concentration of carotenoids in a patient’s fingertip. Those with a low LifeMeter level have been shown to have trouble driving at night, poor contrast sensitivity, less protection against infection and disease, reduced speed of visual and cognitive processing, increased chance of sunburn, brain fog and a higher frequency of eye strain and fatigue.

Over 30 peer-reviewed publications prove the effectiveness of LifeMeter. The state-of-the-art device gives medical professionals a safe, convenient and non-invasive way to ensure their patients get the appropriate amount of carotenoids to support visual and overall health.
