the same as a BIA (bio-impedance
analysis) other wise called a VLA (Vitality
Longevity Assessment), and is designed
to screen for key bio markers which,
if abnormal, could lead to accelerated
aging and more serious illness.
VLA results, will let you know
your fat to lean mass ratio. This
is important when losing weight.
You want to lose fat not muscle.
At the very least, will serve as
a reality check for your present
state of health. At best, they
will serve as a valuable focus
tool for you and your health care
provider to set the stage for improvement
in your health which will both
delight you and free you from many
of your present health concerns.
BlA information hopefully will
empower you to take a more active
role in your health and weight
loss goals and is used to aid
you in your weight loss program
which we will design for you.
are six components to the VLA as Follows:
Composition (BCM/ECM/Body Fat)- The human body is made up of two
components, fat and fat free mass. The VLA evaluation has the ability
to separate the fat free mass into two additional compartments,
Body Cell Mass (BCM) and Extra-Cellular Mass (ECM). The ability
to create these two compartments is known as three compartment body
composition. Body fat is the storage of potential energy storing
3500 calories per pound. Body cell mass, is where body fat is burned
when doing exercise or work. Extra-cellular mass, like bone and
plasma provide transportation of nutrients, waste and fluids and
support for the body.
Fluids (ICW & ECW) - Total Body Water (TBW) is the sum of Intra-cellular
water (ICW) and Extra-Cellular Water (ECW). Usually, about 60% of
total water in the healthy adult is Intra-cellular and 40% is Extra-cellular.
When the percentage of Extra Cellular water is greater than norm
this could mead Toxin accumulation. In the body's attempt to dilute
toxins it raises the extra cellular fluid. The old adage: the solution
to pollution is dilution apply's here.
Mass Index (BMI) - a ration between weight and height. It is a mathematical
formula that correlates somewhat with body fat. In general, if your
BMI is high, you may have an increased risk of developing certain
diseases including hypertension, cardiovascular disease and others.
BMI is a better predictor of disease risk than body weight alone.
Competitive athletes, body builders, women who are pregnant or lactating,
grown children for frail and sedentary elderly individuals should
not use BMI as the basis for estimating their body fat.
(CAP) - All living things are made of cells. Cells are membrane
bounded compartments filled with a concentrated solution of chemicals
and salts. The cell membrane maintains a gradient difference across
it which is essential to cell survival. The cell membrane functions
as a permeable barrier separating the intra-cellular and extra-cellular
components. Capacitance is not effected by body weight or body fat.
It is a measurement of cell membrane health and can change dramatically
depending on disease or good health. This electrical gradient is
necessary to support movement of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nutrients.
A person's electrical capacitance will increase or decrease depending
on the health and number of cells.
Angle (PA) - is based on total body resistance and reactance and
is independent of height, weight and body fat. Lower phase angles
appear to be consistent with either cell death or a breakdown of
the cell membrane. Higher phase angles appear to be consistent with
large quantities of intact cell membranes and body cell mass. Phase
angle is a predictor of outcome and indicates the course of disease
or increases as the result of optimal health based on good nutrition
and consistent exercise.
