Why is body composition important to your health?
Bioimpedance analysis (BIA) or a Total body Analysis is a valuable tool for measuring your body composition. It is a break down of the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass and water. It is an important part of any comprehensive health and nutrition assessment.
A normal balance of body fat to lean body mass is associated with good health and longevity. Excess fat in relation to lean body mass, a condition known as altered body composition, can greatly increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more. Total body Analysis enables early detection of an improper balance in your body composition, which allows for earlier intervention and prevention.
Total body Analysis serves to measure your progress as you work to improve your health. Improving your BIA measure, or maintaining a health BIA measurement, can help keep your body functioning properly for healthy aging and reduced risk of illness. With your BIA results, we can recommend a personalized dietary plan, nutritional supplements, and exercise to help support optimal health and well-being for a lifetime.
