Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) measures the impedance or opposition to the flow of an electric current through the body fluids contained mainly in the lean and fat tissue of the body. This enables us to have a clear look at an individual’s health on a number of levels. It is also a very useful tool when embarking on a weight loss, detox or fitness program.
