Your body is made up of 5 different compartments – metabolic tissues, intracellular water, extracellular water, bone tissue and fat. Your total body water weight is found inside and outside your cells. Body Cell Mass includes your metabolic tissues and intracellular water. Extracellular mass includes your bone tissue and extracellular water. Lastly, is your fat mass.
Total Fat Mass includes your visceral adipose and subcutaneous adipose tissues. Elevated rates increase your risks for cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, diabetes, cancer, and many other disorders.
Body Cell Mass (BCM) is your active tissue mass which includes skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, and viscera-nervous tissue which is your heart, kidney, liver, and lung. Body Cell Mass is the total mass of the metabolically active cells in your body. They perform chemical, thermal, or mechanical work exchanging oxygen, burning calories, and utilizing glucose.
Loss of BCM (Sarcopenia) is associated with a reduced quality of life, poor immune response, increased biological age, osteoporosis, and impaired healing. It takes three times longer to accumulate BCM as to deplete it. To increase BCM you must remove catabolic factors like stress, anxiety, sedentary behaviors, insulin resistance, etc., and increase protein calories and introduce resistance training. Straight Nutrition is powering Nutrition for personal trainers and doctors.
Extracellular mass (ECM) includes your plasma, tendons, ligaments, fascia, dermis, collagen, elastin, and the skeleton. ECM is the tissue not targeted by catabolism which includes your bones, legaments, tendons and extracellular water.
