Better Women's Health: Metabolism with Natural Supplements
Here’s a test: define metabolism. Go ahead, what is it? If you said it’s how
fast you burn calories, you’re partially right. Your metabolic rate does
determine the number of calories your body burns. But your metabolism governs
more than just your metabolic rate. It also keeps everything in balance – like
your blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure. nutraOrigin,
makers of high quality vitamins for women, shares the secrets of supporting a
When metabolism goes wrong
In ideal circumstances, your metabolism works like a well-oiled machine. You eat
energy in the form of food. The body breaks the food down into sugar. The sugar
is transported out of the blood and into the cells by the hormone insulin.
But most of us don’t lead ideal lives. We tend to eat diets high in simple
carbohydrates (like bread, rice, and pastries), which cause a rapid spike in
blood sugar levels. In response, the pancreas secretes loads of insulin. That’s
okay occasionally, but when we consistently eat simple carbs, so much insulin is
flooded into the system that we can eventually become resistant to it. In fact,
one in five Americans suffers from insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes
and metabolic syndrome – both of which increase your risk of heart attack and
stroke. That’s why it’s important to learn how to lower blood sugar.

Balance addresses all three critical aspects of blood sugar balance. First, it
increases your body’s sensitivity to insulin, with chromium, cinnamon, and ECGC
from green tea. Second, it imitates the effects of insulin with the mineral
vanadium. And third, it ignites glucose metabolism, with a high-potency dose of
When you balance your blood sugar, you’re investing in your long-term health.
But you also get short-term benefits, like higher energy levels and an easier
time losing weight.

If you’re resistant to insulin, chances are it’s putting a strain on your heart.
That’s why any program aimed at supporting optimal metabolism will also address
