We can measure your body fat percentage, thanks to a professional-grade segmental bioimpedance analyzer. Using eight-point tactile electrode technology instead of the empirical estimates of most bioimpedance machines, this analyzer provides more accurate results. The analyzer measures weight, fat mass, lean body mass, body fat percentage, intracellular water, extracellular water and total body water. This is a great way to monitor your progress over time.

Taking nutritional supplements is a way to ensure that your body has the necessary levels of nutrients for optimal health as well as important disease prevention. Most importantly, nutritional supplements provide the vital nutrients our bodies need when our diets are lacking, our stress levels are high, or our health is compromised.
