Natural Supplements for Women's Health: Metabolism
Hereís a test: define metabolism. Go ahead, what is it? If you said itís how fast you burn calories, youíre partially right. Your metabolic rate does determine the number of calories your body burns. But your metabolism governs more than just your metabolic rate. It also keeps everything in balance Ė like your blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure. nutraOrigin, makers of high quality vitamins for women, shares the secrets of supporting a healthy metabolism.
When metabolism goes wrong In ideal circumstances, your metabolism works like a well-oiled machine. You eat energy in the form of food. The body breaks the food down into sugar. The sugar is transported out of the blood and into the cells by the hormone insulin. Simple.
But most of us donít lead ideal lives. We tend to eat diets high in simple carbohydrates (like bread, rice, and pastries), which cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. In response, the pancreas secretes loads of insulin. Thatís okay occasionally, but when we consistently eat simple carbs, so much insulin is flooded into the system that we can eventually become resistant to it. In fact, one in five Americans suffers from insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes and metabolic syndrome Ė both of which increase your risk of heart attack and stroke. Thatís why itís important to learn how to lower blood sugar. Balance your blood sugar There are a number of things you can do to support normal blood sugar levels. Exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet top the list. But natural supplements, such as nutraOriginís Glycemic Balance, can also help. Glycemic Balance addresses all three critical aspects of blood sugar balance.
First, it increases your bodyís sensitivity to insulin, with chromium, cinnamon, and ECGC from green tea. Second, it imitates the effects of insulin with the mineral vanadium. And third, it ignites glucose metabolism, with a high-potency dose of biotin. When you balance your blood sugar, youíre investing in your long-term health. But you also get short-term benefits, like higher energy levels and an easier time losing weight. Love your heart If youíre resistant to insulin, chances are itís putting a strain on your heart. Thatís why any program aimed at supporting optimal metabolism will also address cardiovascular health. nutraOriginís CardioBalance supplement supports your metabolism in keeping your cholesterol levels healthy. It features policosanol, a 100% natural ingredient derived from sugar cane wax, which is backed by multiple scientific studies. Policosanol also protects your heart, veins and arteries, and supports a regular heart rhythm.
Give yourself a good foundation Your body can survive even the most nutritionally deficient diet. But for your metabolism to really thrive, it needs a multitude of vitamins and minerals Ė in just the right quantities. Unfortunately, those are hard to get from diet alone. nutraOrigin developed Nutra Multi, a high-quality multivitamin and mineral, to cover your nutritional bases, keep your metabolism humming, and protect your heart with double-strength folic acid. The experts at nutraOrigin recommend taking all three formulas together for maximum synergistic effect.
