Metabolism is best understood as the process by which our bodies convert the food we eat and the air we breathe into energy that can be used by our cells. Optimal metabolism is essential for normalizing blood sugar, maintaining muscle mass, burning fat, recovering from inflammatory and oxidative damage, fueling our brains and bodies, and basically sustaining our lives. Many people have compromised metabolism from inflammatory foods, excessive consumption of simple sugars and refined carbohydrates, infections, toxins, and stress. The most common symptoms associated with poor metabolism are low energy, muscle weakness, weight gain, fat accumulation around the waist, brain fog, and irritability.
A whole foods, plant-based diet with sufficient healthy fats and clean, sustainable proteins is the foundation of healthy metabolism. Interval training exercise involving cardio and resistance is also fundamental. Mitochondria - the energy powerhouses in our cells - number in the trillions and require nutritious food, clean air, sunshine, and a happy gut to run our metabolism efficiently. We offer research-based proprietary nutritional and herbal formulations to fuel your mitochondria, support healthy glucose levels, and help your body extract and utilize critical nutrients to produce the energy your brain and body need so that you can live a metabolically efficient, energized life.
