Metabolism is the process in which our body converts food into energy. Our metabolic rate is the rate at which our body burns calories and accounts for about 70% of the calories we burn every day. Our metabolism plays an important role in weight loss, energy, and many bodily processes including breathing and heart function.
Our metabolism is directly connected to our mitochondria function. Mitochondria are the small structures located within the cell. Mitochondria are called the “powerhouse of the cell” because they contain a number of enzymes and proteins that help the body convert food to energy.
The best way to improve metabolism is to get healthier at the cellular level by providing the cell and mitochondria with the right fuel such as daily movement (exercise) and high quality foods such as the ones found here.
