Signs You Have Lowered Metabolism
Metabolism refers to the chemical processes that occur in the body to maintain life. It is the sum of all the chemical reactions that happen in the cells and tissues of living organisms, which convert food and oxygen into energy and other molecules necessary for the body’s growth, repair, and maintenance.
Metabolism includes two main processes: catabolism and anabolism. Catabolism involves breaking down complex molecules into simpler ones, releasing energy. On the other hand, anabolism consists in building up complex molecules from simpler ones, requiring energy.
The rate of Metabolism can vary depending on factors such as age, sex, body composition, and physical activity level. A faster metabolism generally means the body can burn more calories at rest and during physical activity, while a slower metabolism may lead to weight gain and other health issues.
Please understand that we can improve the signs by working on the ROOT issuess that have led to your lower state of Metabolism. Often this takes a reverse diet where we feed our clients up as we work on functional issuess that we assess in labs and MSQs.
