Bio-Impedance Analysis Gold Coast
Obesity and Fat Loss are the number one health concerns of the new millennium with over five million Australians considered overweight and two million more considered obese. Bio-Impedance Analysis enables you to maximize your weight loss, optimise your training, increase your vitality and fine tune your nutrition to create a better body and slow down the ageing process. This test can provide you with significant information about your body composition including muscle mass and body fat, cellular hydration and your biological age, and can be used to formulate and monitor your weight-loss program.
This investigation involves the attachment of electrodes to both your hands and feet to access the micro-current flowing through your body, which is a very effective way of evaluating how efficiently your cells are functioning. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis or BioImpedance Analysis (BIA) is a method of assessing your “body composition” the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass. Research has shown that body composition is directly related to health; a normal balance of body fat is associated with good health, vitality and longevity. Research has also shown that excess fat in relation to lean body mass, being overweight or obese, can greatly increase your risks to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more. The BIA allows us to monitor and detect imbalances in your body composition, which allows for earlier intervention and prevention. The BIA also serves to measure your progress as you work to improve your health and correct your body composition. Biomarkers are parameters that measure aspects of your health. They enable us to measure your:
- Ideal Weight
- Body Mass Index
- Body Fat Percentage
- Muscle Mass
- Body Fat Risk
- Biological Age
- Toxicity Level
- Cellular Health
- Hydration Level
- Individual Nutritional Requirements
- Blood Pressure
By analysing these biological markers, an accurate status of your current health can be recorded and we can target the areas of your health that need attention and identify problems that are contributing to your current weight issues.
