Meet The Nutrients That Support Metabolism

By April 14, 2017April 2nd, 2021Metabolic Support, Nutrition

The body has its own natural metabolic process, and the right nutrients can help support it.

What gets in the way of healthy metabolism?

It could be that a defective gene IS responsible for an enzyme deficiency. An enzyme deficiency can be the source of digestive issues and in some cases, even allergies. This raises an interesting question…

“Is metabolism genetic?”

In many ways, it is. We each have our unique metabolism, which some scientists have compared to a fingerprint. What is unique is our metabolic rate, the pace at which we burn calories when the body is at rest. This is known as the Basal Metabolic Rate, or the BMR.

But the genetic aspects of metabolism do not mean this rate is permanently locked in. There are natural ways to nourish enzymes that can impact the BMR. Let’s look at two of the natural sources we include here at Systemic Formulas in our highly potent metabolic formula.

White Kidney Bean Extract

One natural way to support healthy metabolism is with the White Kidney Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), which can help prevent the digestive enzyme alpha-amylase from breaking down carbohydrates into glucose. When this takes place, the benefits can include a reduction in fat mass and body weight. The extract of the White Kidney Bean is often thought of as an effective starch blocker,
which is true, but only part of the story. It’s the work that takes place inside the cell with Phaseolamin that is noteworthy. Phaseolamin is a proteinaceous inhibitor. This is what
impacts the breaking down of carbohydrates into glucose.

Sacha Inchi

Another natural way to support healthy metabolism is with Sacha Inchi. Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) comes from the tropics of South America, and is now being produced in Thailand. It is high in protein efficiency and packed with the essential amino acids for building. Sacha Inchi also provides Omega-3 fats to support joint health.

The Road To Healthier Metabolism

Targeted nutritional support can help the body’s normal, cellular glucose metabolic energy processes. These processes can produce the energy that’s essential for a healthy metabolism.
