Metabolism is usually considered as a part of weight loss process. However, this concept is much broader.
Metabolic processes are associated with:
- food processing by the body;
- conversion of meals into simple components;
- the release of the body’s cells from waste elements;
- providing cells with the necessary material.
Without metabolism, the existence of living organisms is impossible. It allows a person to adapt to a variety of external factors. Metabolic reactions allow cells, tissues and organs to recover from internal failures and negative external influences on their own. Metabolism ensures the flow of regeneration processes. It turns the human body into an extremely complex, highly organized system capable of self-regulation and self-preservation; participates in the processes of respiration, tissue regeneration, growth, reproduction, etc.
So, that is clear now that good metabolism is necessary not only for people with obesity, fitness fans or professional sportsmen. We all need it.
By the way, the quality of metabolic processes depends not only on genes, but also on physical activity, health of the gastrointestinal tract, bad habits, constant stress, unhealthy diet, thyroid disease and some other factors.
But what can we do with this? We have collected the main principles of good metabolism.
