ENSURE MICRONUTRIENT REQUIREMENTS
Your metabolism needs proper nourishment from micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) to perform at optimum levels. Nutritional deficiencies can be one of the most significant, long-term barriers to your metabolism.
If you have any micronutrient deficiencies your metabolism will not work at optimal levels, which means you will not be metabolically efficient, and not burn as much energy as you would otherwise.
Calcium is a mineral with many functions. Most of the body’s calcium is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports their structure. Calcium does a lot more than help build strong bones and teeth though.
Calcium can boost your metabolic rate, which boosts weight loss. In one study, researchers found that a high-calcium, lower-calorie diet boosted fat loss by 42%, compared to only 8% for just a lower-calorie diet. Studies also show that people who take in adequate amounts of calcium on a regular basis are less likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome, whose symptoms include high blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides, poor blood sugar control and increased abdominal obesity – all factors that increase risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Calcium mainly comes from the foods you eat; sardines, tofu, almonds, spinach and other dark greens, yogurt and milk. Most people do not consistently get enough calcium into their diet so we recommend supplementing some into your daily routine.
Vitamin D is a hormone, although most commonly known as a vitamin. People normally get vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, which triggers vitamin D production in the skin.
Vitamin D helps regulate belly fat. It has been shown to reduce the release of cortisol, a stress hormone known to encourage the storage of belly fat. Vitamin D also improves lean muscle mass, strength and bone mineral density. It can counteract the effects of insulin resistance as well.
Vitamin D is found naturally in very few foods, so supplementing it is almost a necessity, especially if you live somewhere that is not sunny year round.
Magnesium is the mineral of relaxation, but it also plays other amazing roles. One of the most important functions is the production of cellular energy, which not only impacts your energy, mood and nerve function but your Metabolic Efficiency.
Magnesium is a potent anti-inflammatory and helps manage blood pressure along with muscle soreness. It has a positive impact on the regulation of blood sugar and helps improve glucose parameters in people who are at-risk for developing diabetes.
Magnesium helps with the absorption of calcium and helps strengthen your bones and teeth as well. Food sources of magnesium are dark greens (spinach, kale, broccoli etc), cacao (real chocolate), yogurt, beans, nuts and seeds.
