THE USE of Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) TO ASSES KEY prediction MARKERS TO HELP DRIVE AND MONITOR CELLULAR HEALTH
A Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis or Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA) can be used as a quick, easy and non-invasive way of assessing a person’s level of systemic inflammation in the body, hydration, gauge the overall cellular level health of the individual and assess the need for specific lifestyle changes. These prediction markers provide a critical and individualized feedback mechanism to adjust lifestyle choices, sustain health span and vitality, prevent against the risk of chronic and degenerative medical conditions and drive overall longevity.
INFLAMMATION: Also known as the silent killer, Inflammation is a complex biological response to abnormalities in the body. It can be caused by injury, chronic health conditions, food allergies, chronic stress and much more. Ill effects of inflammation include an increased risk of injury and chronic health conditions, chronic pain, and faster aging. Inflammation is measured through an analysis of extracellular water accumulation. Reducing inflammation in the body and proper hydration will improve skin health, organ function, and improve the body’s ability to burn fat, leading to less oxidative stress and a better overall body composition
CELLULAR HEALTH INDEX: Cellular health refers to how healthy you are where it really matters, ON THE INSIDE! Cellular health is measured through an analysis of phase angle that measures the integrity of the cell membranes & how well they function, which degrades with age, poor lifestyle and various medical conditions. Decreased cellular health is correlated with poor exercise habits, malnutrition, overtraining, chronic inflammation and chronic health conditions. Improving cellular health will have positive impacts on all aspects of health and performance.
HYDRATION: Hydration testing measures not only if you have had enough water today, but more importantly, chronically over time. Proper hydration is crucial for blood pressure management, electrolyte balance, optimal skin health, and optimizes the ability to burn fat- both in terms of endurance and body composition.
