A person's "metabolism" is the principle instrument for transformation of food into energy in the body. This conversion of energy is performed via various physical and chemical processes. But the importance of your metabolism isn't limited to energy production. In addition to energy production, our metabolisms are responsible for multiple other actions, such as:
There is a misbelief that the only outcome of raising your metabolism is burning calories and losing weight. But this is wrong. In fact,
"Boosting your metabolism" refers to boosting the supply of the essential vitamins, mineral and enzymes your body needs in order to reach its full potential.
Here, we'll cover the signs of low metabolism, as well as the main nutrients that can help. Plus, we'll outline the benefits of a healthy metabolism. Finally, we invite your Q&A about metabolism at the end. In fact, we try to respond to all reader comments personally and promptly.
WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY...
“Supplement producers should have to prove that their pills are safe and effective."
Dr. Pieter Cohen, assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, who has studied the dangers of nutritional supplements extensively
Each time you eat an apple, or a sandwich, your body works hard to process the nutrients you've taken in. After you start washing the empty dishes and cleaning up the table, a food digestion process takes place. The nutrients you've taken in fuel the needs of your body.
What's actually happening is fascinating: your body gets the energy it needs from food through a process called metabolism.
The metabolism is simply an instrument for processing food and converting it into energy. This system is repeatedly speeding up and slowing down. Its dynamic depends on a variety of factors such as: your body size and composition, your sex, age, and - what's most important - the food you eat.
So, if you are experiencing problems with your weight, the good news is that some of the variables involved in your metabolic rate are changeable. You can influence the type of food you eat!
When we talk about metabolism, everything revolves around chemistry. But what are the main benefits of a health metabolic system?
First, a good metabolism will optimize nutrient absorption in the body. After you eat a significant amount of food, your body will absorb as much as it can from the nutrients. This is the whole point of eating, right? Think of the digestive system as a sponge that needs to be wrung out through adequate water consumption and exercise. When the fat from food is oxidized more efficiently, toxins leave the body either through the excretory system, or through sweat.
The second benefit of an effective metabolism is faster blood circulation. Efficient circulation keeps every bodily system functioning at its peak. Additionally, increased blood flow gives the body more energy, increases strength, and positively affects reflexes.
But one of the most visible benefits of an efficient metabolism is the significant improvement in your mood. In truth, feeling and looking healthy are the two most vital aspects of wellness. When the sympathetic and autonomic nervous systems are in balance, they have a huge positive effect on your mental state. In sum, an investment in your metabolism is one of the best things you can do for yourself!
1. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a healthy fat usually found in meat and dairy. It has been proven quite effective in burning fat. Before you start gulping down CLA pills, make sure to consult a doctor or a sport training professional. Taking this ingredient in the form of a pill should be used with caution, since it creates a minimal drop in pounds. The way this ingredient works is by attaching itself to the muscles. CLA can be found naturally in grass-fed beef, organic milk, cheese, yogurt, and eggs.
Your thyroid gland needs zinc to produce thyroid hormone. This is the way your body can produce and keep its energy. Zinc help your establish control over your appetite. According to the FDA, the recommended daily dose of zinc is 11 milligrams for men and 8 mg for women. Natural food that is rich with zinc includes:
Selenium is vital for the proper work of your thyroid, the gland in your neck that regulates metabolism. In fact, the thyroid is vital to staying healthy. A healthy thyroid produces the hormones that keep your metabolism and energy at optimal levels. The daily recommended dose for selenium is 55-70 micrograms for adults. Selenium can be found in:
While you can find and consume these nutrients in the form of food or nutritional supplement... there are also some simple changes that you can make to your routine that will speed up your metabolism naturally.
1. Sleep 7-9 hours per night. Good sleep hygiene regulates hormone levels and keeps the system in check. Healthy hormone levels trigger healthy metabolism.
2. Eat more protein. Protein keeps energy and blood sugar stable while helping build calorie-burning lean muscle mass. In other words, proteins force metabolism to work.
3. Work out as often as you can. As you age and stay active, the body maintains muscle mass. You snooze, you lose it.
4. Do not starve yourself. It may seem obvious, but calorie restricting diets can actually slow down metabolism, as the body tries to conserve energy for vital functions.
