Dear goop, I don’t know if everyone’s metabolism slows down in their 30s and 40s, but mine has, and I’m curious about the different ways to support it.
Hello Chelsea. Metabolism slows down as we age. You can support your metabolism with specific nutrients and types of exercise. And by mixing our new product Metabolism Booster Super Gunpowder in your daily juice. More on that shortly.
When you exercise, your metabolism speeds up to strengthen your muscles. this is Continuing to increase metabolism Even after you’ve stopped moving – for up to an hour. And because heat is generated as a byproduct of metabolism, you feel warm not only during exercise but also after it. Try to avoid sitting for long periods of time. When you calm down, it’s time to move again.

One reason our metabolism slows down as we age is a decrease in muscle mass. Muscles have a faster metabolism (i.e. they use up more energy) than fat tissue, even when you’re not doing anything. So a great way to boost your metabolism is to build muscle. Without making some effort to prevent muscle loss, our muscles tend to shrink with age.

Metabolism is a series of chemical reactions that digest food, convert food into energy, and use this energy for movement and thinking. In the end, the fuel you consumed was used up and you powered your body. How can you best support these chemical reactions? One simple way is to provide cofactors: vitamins and minerals that drive chemical reactions. The B vitamins and magnesium are the most visible. They are essential cofactors every step of the way when carbohydrates and fats are being burned for energy.
Throughout evolution until a few hundred years ago, we’ve been eating primarily whole foods that provide not only fuel (carbohydrates and fats) but also vitamins and minerals needed to burn these fuels. However, much of what we eat now is concentrated fuel without the necessary cofactors for fuel metabolism. For example, B vitamins and magnesium are removed in the production of white flour and white sugar. This is one of the reasons why many people choose to take supplements. high school genetics It is an excellent source of B vitamins, manufactured by Levon Labs Lipomagnesium In easy-to-swallow containers. *
You may have heard that as we age, we lose mitochondria. These are the parts in the cells where fats and carbohydrates are burned and energy is generated. high school genetics Includes ingredients to provide mitochondrial support: large amounts of niacin and niacinamide, along with mitochondrial cofactor alpha lipoic acid. *
But with nutrients and exercise, there’s one more thing worth trying: 7-Keto® DHEA. There is evidence from clinical studies that when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, 7-Keto DHEA can help increase your metabolic rate. 7-Keto DHEA is a natural metabolite of DHEA, which is a common steroid found in the body. But unlike DHEA, 7-Keto DHEA is not converted into sex hormones, so don’t worry about hormonal effects. in goop Metabolism Booster Super Gunpowder Formulated with a clinically studied dose of 7-Keto DHEA. It also contains a concentrated extract of cinnamon to help preserve it Healthy blood sugar levels When used as part of your diet, holy basil, is my favorite plant. *
