Body composition

We are not just made of one component, we have a variety of components and compartments, each one different than the other and with its own functions. In fact, the study of body composition allows us to measure the body’s core components: adipose tissue, minerals, protein, and body water and to compare the changes between them.

 

However, the structure certainly comes with the function and as we age, exercise or modify our diet, our structure changes, and therefore our condition evolves or worsens. Body composition analyses have played a major role in defining and linking the changes in the body components and their metabolic effect.
