Simplifying metabolism and busting some myths

How many times have you heard people casually use the word metabolism? We guess, more often than not. This article will layout metabolism for you in a very simple way and help you relate to it in your daily lives.

The very first question is, how do you scientifically define metabolism? Well, here we go - Metabolism is a term that is used to describe all chemical reactions involved in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organism. To simplify this further, metabolism is the process by which your body converts consumed food and beverages into energy. Energy that is required to maintain your basic bodily function. Energy formation is one of the vital components of metabolism.

So we now understand that everything we eat, junk or healthy gets converted into energy which is then used by our body to maintain life. To drift a bit, that is exactly why we are told not to eat junk, because unhealthy food does not supply our body with the right nutrients, and nutrients are at the core of energy production through the process of metabolism. Metabolism is closely linked to nutrition and the availability of nutrients.

It is obvious then, pouring in good nutrients leads to a healthy body. The next question of course is what really are these nutrients? Well, a good metabolism needs a lot (literally) of nutrients. The diet needs essential nutrients like carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur, and around 20 other inorganic elements. The major elements are supplied in carbohydrates, lipids, and protein. In addition, vitamins, minerals and water are necessary.

Our hectic lifestyles make it super tough to maintain healthy eating habits. We usually tend to rely on supplement capsules, fresh juices, or other packed food items which we deem healthy to fulfill our nutritional needs. At the very outset we must clarify, there is nothing better (we mean it) than eating fresh fruits and vegetables. No amount of tablets, packed juices or health bars can cut it out and make up for freshly cut fruits or home cooked food. The next best alternative is to consume fruits and vegetables in as natural a form as possible; this could be in crushed or powdered form.

Done your research and made the best choices available? Our metabolic drink is one good option. It contains multiple vitamins, iron, calcium, carbohydrates, and many other important nutrients that boost your metabolism rate there by improving the core functions of your body. Try it out and see how it works.

Myth buster – do you think metabolism is completely related to weight gain or loss? Well, we do know that metabolism effects weight management for sure because the entire process of energy generation and consumption by our body is what brings metabolism and weight control together. If you generate more energy (calories) than you consume, you gain weight. Having said so, it is critical to understand that a metabolism boost by itself will not lead to weight loss. If you continue to eat junk, not exercise or consume more calories than what your body needs; a good metabolism rate can only do so much to your weight loss plan.

So get your habits right - Eat clean, exercise well and supplement your diet with rich nutrient products; and see the magic unfold. Wishing you awesome health.
