InBody Talks Cholesterol

Here at Vita, we always strive to stay up-to-date on the latest news & info relevant to our industry. We just discovered that a good friend of ours – InBodyUSA – recently came out with a great article that we would love to talk about and share with you.

The Truth About Cholesterol” covers just about everything you’ll need to know about the topic, and plainly clears up misconceptions about the types, misconceptions, and risk factors of cholesterol.

Here’s one excerpt from the article that we want to emphasize to our readers:

As the saying goes, “exercise is the best medicine”. This holds true in the context of cholesterol, too.A study published in the Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis found that walking even just 6000 steps per day was associated with lower triglycerides and better HDL levels. Unsurprisingly, the same study found that increasing the intensity of exercise (like jogging or swimming) resulted in even more significant benefits. Is cardio the only answer? Not necessarily. Researchers have shown that strength training is also an effective method to lower total cholesterol.

By the way – we now offer an Inbody 570 Scale composition analysis, which near instantly measures fat percentages, cholesterol levels, muscle mass, total body water, and a lot more. Learn more here.
