4 Vitamins and Minerals to boost your Metabolism

Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. Calories in food and beverages are combined with oxygen to release the energy your body needs to function. HOWEVER …as you age and begin to lose muscle your metabolism slows down.

Supplements for Metabolism:

These Supplements for Metabolism can be found at my online store.

Here are 4 vitamins and minerals to boost your metabolism (and promote weight loss)

1. Vitamin D

Your body can get all the vitamin D it needs from the sun. However most people today spend too much time indoors (especially during periods of lockdown). Getting enough vitamin D from food is difficult, so supplements are often recommended.
Some evidence suggests that getting enough vitamin D could also enhance weight loss and decrease body fat.

2. Iron

It plays a role in helping your body create energy from nutrients. Iron helps carry oxygen to all of the cells in your body, including your muscles. This then in turn helps them burn fat.

3. Magnesium

Magnesium is necessary for energy production in the body. This mineral acts as a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems. These systems are responsible for a wide range of reactions in the body, including controlling blood glucose, regulating blood pressure and keeping bones strong.

4. B vitamins

The main function of the B vitamins is to help your body metabolise carbohydrates, fats and proteins and to use the stored energy in food.
B Vitamins are like the building blocks of a healthy body and have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism!
B-complex vitamin supplement might be the simplest way to get these benefits into your diet, however there are plenty of foods that contain B vitamins as well!
