Metabolism - The foundation of life

Metabolism is the foundation for all the important chemical reactions of the body. Every second, the body goes through biochemical processes of build-up, degradation, and transformation by “metabolising” nutrients supplied to your cells. Only then can all your vital bodily functions take place.

Basic processes that are dependent on a properly functioning metabolism:

  • All growth and repair processes
  • Oxygen supplied to all organs
  • Detoxification processes performed by the liver
  • Metabolism of carbon, protein, fat, and minerals

What influence does metabolism have on your overall wellbeing?

A high metabolism is great for your energy levels and overall wellbeing. A metabolic disorder is the result of metabolism failure due to nutrient deficiencies, missing enzymes, and diseases of the pancreas, liver, endocrine glands, and other organs involved in metabolism. Common problems associated with metabolic disorders include being overweight and diabetes. There are many diet changes that can help boost your metabolism, balance your blood sugar levels, regulate your weight, and help prevent many metabolic diseases.

How will you feel when your metabolism is balanced?

  • Your sleep improves and you wake up well rested
  • Your energy increases, which boosts your daily performance at work and home
  • You gain strength and muscle mass
  • You regulate your blood sugar levels
  • You balance your acidity-alkaline ratio
  • You achieve and maintain your desired weight
  • You improve your overall quality of life

Enzymes and hormones

Enzymes and hormones help regulate your metabolism. They both control important functions of the body.

 Enzymes act like catalysts, and they set bodily functions in motion. They are also significantly involved in chemical conversion processes in the body. The hormones produced by your body’s glands, such as insulin from the pancreas, interact directly with many control systems and are responsible for the entire “energy management” of your body.

To maintain their structure and function, enzymes and hormones require building blocks, such as from the food you eat every day. If you don’t get the necessary nutrients, or you get them in insufficient quantities, your metabolism can easily become imbalanced. This not only leads to weight gain and becoming overweight, but you are also at risk to metabolic illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes.

This is why the right diet is a basic requirement for both enzyme and hormone regulation, and this is where the personalized Metabolic Balance meal plan can help you. You get personal dietary recommendations based on your blood values and individual data, including your unique dietary needs. In this meal plan you give your body the food it really needs, while balancing your metabolism in a completely natural way.
