In biology, metabolism is a set of chemical reactions that occur in the body of all living beings on the planet, including humans. Metabolism in simple words is when the body breaks down the food we consume into smaller components and builds them new molecules of our body. Metabolism allows the body to grow, reproduce, heal injuries and react to the environment.
In simple words, metabolism is the process of turning our food into energy. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates, as well as vitamins and minerals that we consume, are absorbed and processed by the body to build new cells, hormonal and enzyme metabolism.
What affects metabolism?
Age, weight, height, gender, body type (body types, see above);
Nutrition, physical activity (and their proper combination, depending on the type of structure of the body);
Health status (stable hormonal balance, which can be checked by the doctor-endocrinologist);
Mental health (lack of stress and any other loosening the psyche factors).
Signs of decreased metabolism
-Difficulty in fat loss
-Feeling cold; craving warmth
-Inability to sweat
-Loss of libido
-Ringing in the ears
Some juices can only be absorbed in combination with other ingredients. Fresh juices are highly concentrated, so they are diluted with water, most often in a ratio of 1:1. Knowing and remembering all these features, use fruits and vegetables wisely to improve health without harming the body.
If you get into a juicing routine and eat a partly raw food diet– and stay with it– within a short time, you will increase your metabolism. These drinks provide you with massive antioxidant, fruit and veggie boosts with minimal effort — plus juicing and cleansing your body.
