BIA is a state-of-the-art technique to measure total body composition so that you may quantify both visceral (OverVat) and subcutaneous (OverSat) fat. Visceral fat is the fat that cannot be seen on the outside of the body. However, it is a significant health concern as it compresses the internal organs with profound health sequences. Subcutaneous fat, visible from the body surface, might not give you the appearance you want, but is fairly innocuous. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis enables you to monitor both types of fat so that you may make lifestyle changes that improve your health on the inside and the outside.
BIA measures the following:
Total Fat Mass (Subcutaneous AND Visceral)
Lean Body Mass
Total Body Water*
*Total body water, intracellular water and extracellular water are critical markers of health. A contributing factor to poor health is low intracellular water content caused by leaky cellular membranes.
BIA uses an imperceptible electric current to quantify total fat and body water. The current efficiently travels through water but not fat.
Mathematical algorithms, based on the resistance and reactance of the current, are used to quantify body composition.
