什麼是「肌肉品質」?
  肌肉質量或肌肉品質指示肌肉的狀況,而肌肉狀況會根據年齡及運動量等因素而改變。   一般來說,肌肉的「質」和「量」於30歲前後會達到最高峰。由於年齡增長及運動不足等原因,肌纖維有可能會出現萎縮,而影響最終肌肉的力量和爆發力。「久久沒運動,再提腳發覺雙腿乏力」、「腿部肌力衰退,步速變慢」、「雙腳無力站不穩,容易跌倒」,以上種種有可能是和肌肉的「質素」有關係。   肌肉健康發達與否,與身體整體健康有密切的關係。「不鍊則退」,肌肉需要定時鍛鍊以保「質」和「量」。研究發現,耐力性練習如長跑、自行車、負重運動等,可以降低肌肉內脂肪的含量,提高肌肉收縮效率之餘,亦能增強肌肉的體積和力度。   年輕人或經常運動的人的肌肉通常處於良好狀態,但是老年人或沒有做足夠運動的人的肌肉可能會退化。你可參考以下的圖表來判定你的肌肉品質的狀況︰     注意:如果體水份率受影響,可能會無法準確評估肌肉質量,例如以下的情況:  如果身體疲勞或腫脹  如果患者脫水或血流量減少

你的「體脂肪率」健康嗎?
 體脂肪率是體內的脂肪與總體重的比例。   脂肪過多會損害你的長期健康。減少過量的體脂可以直接降低某些疾病的風險,如高血壓,心髒病,糖尿病等。體內脂肪太少亦可能導致骨質疏鬆症及影響女性月事週期不定期。在一段長時間內,可能導致其他健康風險,例如推定骨量減少。因此,保持你的體脂肪率在Tanita健康的體脂範圍內是很重要。   多少體脂肪率才是健康? 根據DEXA的標準及相關研究結果,Tanita為亞洲和歐美人分析出以下的體脂肪率判定表,年齡從5歲到99歲。 TANITA 體組成磅會自動將你的體脂肪率與以下的體脂肪率判定表進行比較,再分析出你是否健康。 注意:以上資料僅供亞洲人參考。歐美人請參閱http://tanita.eu/tanita-academy/understanding-your-measurements

什麼是「體內年齡」?
      體內年齡是通過比較體內的基礎代謝率(BMR)與實際年齡組的BMR平均值來計算出來的代謝年齡。   假如你的體內年齡大於實際年齡,你需要重新調整你目前的生活方式及飲食習慣,增加運動量可以建立健康的肌肉組織,從而改善新陳代謝及體內年齡。我們曾經測量過一位前職業足球運動員的體組成狀況,他實際年齡是70歲,但體內年齡竟然是17歲!   體重相同,因體組成狀況不同,其體內年齡亦會不同。假如肌肉量多,體脂肪率少,基礎代謝率較高者,其體內年齡會較年輕。如上圖所示,實際年齡為30歲的人,肌肉量多及體脂肪率少的肌肉猛男與20歲的人的基礎代謝率平均值相當時,其體內年輕即計算為20歲。相反,肌肉量少及體脂肪率多的肥胖人士,同樣是30歲,但其基礎代謝率較低,與50歲的人的基礎代謝率平均值相當時,其體內年輕即計算為50歲。
