VLA stands for Vitality, Longevity & Healthy Ageing.
At Mint, we use the Bio-impedance machine or VLA testing to provide insight into your health on a deeper level. It measures various aspects of your body’s health status to provide scientific facts that can be addressed and improved with the right nutritional plan. VLA testing delivers facts, not opinions. You’ll find out the truth about your body, what needs to be addressed and be able to track your progress.
The VLA machine will measure your:
- Fat : Muscle ratio
- Cell Health (the number one bio marker for aging)
- Hydration levels
- Toxicity levels
- Biological age (your body’s age) compared to your actual chronological age (how young you actually are)
Ideal if you are wanting to:
- Lose weight (it measures how much fat you have and how much muscle)
- Measure your muscle gain if training
- Know your risk factors for heart disease or diabetes
The testing process…
The Bio-impedance machine passes an electrical current through your body to measure the above factors. It is so gentle that you don’t feel a thing. You can be lying on the clinic table at Mint or on a towel in a location convenient to you – the machine is portable, so testing can be done almost anywhere. Following testing, a visual report is generated for immediate analysis and discussion.
