When we try to form a mental image of our metabolism, we tend to picture a furnace or a fireplace in our abdomen that burns up the food we eat. But that’s not entirely accurate.
Your metabolism is not operated by an organ in the middle of your body…but by a small spherical structure inside each of the 100 trillion cells in your body—from your scalp to the soles of your feet.
This spherical structure is called mitochondrion, and its job is to convert food into energy. This is the energy that makes your body move, your heartbeat, your mind think.
When the mitochondria inside your cells are operating at peak efficiency, your metabolism does indeed act like a furnace or fireplace. The more fuel your pour in, the hotter and higher it burns.
Scientists have known for years that the human metabolism slows with age. Now scientists believe that this process is NOT inevitable.
Today, as a result of their research, we’ve got plenty of scientific evidence demonstrating that your metabolism slows with age only if you choose to do nothing about it.
If on the other hand, you eat the right foods…do the right exercises…and take the right dietary supplements, you can maintain a high metabolic rate over your
