Benefits of Body Composition is Improved mood and self-confidence. Increased energy and endurance throughout the day. Reduced pain in joints, hips, and lower back. Improved blood circulation — leading to lower risk for heart disease.
Knowing all about your body composition can help you determine the general state of your overall health. Even if you appear to be healthy on the outside and weigh in at a seemingly normal weight on the scale, you may still have an unhealthy or altered body composition.
Body composition is the body’s relative amount of body fat to fat-free mass, the latter of which is made up of your organs, bones, muscle, and body tissue. If your ratio of body fat is much higher than your fat-free mass, then you could be putting yourself at risk for severe health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, fatigue, cancer, and more.
Although body fat is generally associated with poor health, some fat is actually necessary for overall good health, as it can help protect internal organs, regulate hormones, and provide us with energy. Body fat should typically make up about 5% of total body weight in men and about 12% of total body weight in women.
