Body Composition Analysis
Our body composition analysis is what you need if you wish to learn more about your general health. We use gold-standard, non-invasive technology to analyse your body’s metabolic rates, metabolic age, total bone mass, bone density, total body water, the distribution of the water in your body, total amount of healthy fat, unhealthy or excess fat, your visceral fat level, your physique rating and total muscle mass.
This is a segmental technique, that means that we will also assess the distribution of fat and muscle in your in arms, legs and trunk for a more accurate analysis. This will give us the necessary tools to target specific issues like central obesity for instance, that is the primary risk factor for metabolic syndrome, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
There is no age or gender for assessing the fat in your body. According to The Health Survey for England 2021, almost three quarters of people aged 45-74 in England are overweight or obese. 10.1% of children (age 4-5) were obese, and a further 12.1% were overweight. This highlights the importance to assess your body composition and your body fat at any stage of your life.
If you are concerned about ageing, and you want to improve the quality of your skin, this test will confer important information which are factors to keep your skin healthy and fight against ageing.
