Weight & Metabolism
The metabolism refers to the entirety of processes that contribute to energy production and the biochemical processes involved in the synthesis, transformation, and breakdown of bodily components.

Persistent irregularities in metabolic function can be accompanied by fatigue, exhaustion and intolerances. Targeted and mindful dietary supplementation, for example of vitamin B6, zinc and manganese, can compensate for possible losses of essential micronutrients. B6 supports the nervous system, psyche and hormonal activity, zinc supports fat and carbohydrate metabolism as well as the protection of cells from oxidative stress, while manganese plays a role in energy metabolism.
Many factors influence the acid-base balance, including tension, stress and diets rich in sugar as well as animal-derived fats and proteins. A pH value of 7.4 is optimal for a healthy metabolism. Supplementing appropriate micronutrients such as zinc can naturally provide the body with a balanced pH, while magnesium supports balanced electrolyte levels.
Stable blood sugar levels are essential for health and closely linked to a well-functioning metabolism. Certain nutrients, like chromium, can support the maintenance of a normal blood sugar level. Additionally, plant-based fibres, such as beta-glucan, can help reduce the rapid rise of blood sugar after a meal.
The vital, essential trace element iron plays an integral role in the transport of oxygen in the blood, cell formation and respiration, as well as maintaining the immune system and normal cognitive performance.
Fasting refers to the complete or partial, conscious abstaining from all or specific foods and indulgences for a limited period. Typically, fasting is practiced through regimens lasting one or more days and is intended to cleanse the body.
Homocysteine is a sulphur-containing amino acid that is naturally formed during metabolic processes and is usually broken down again. The presence of increased homocysteine levels in the blood is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.
