Metabolism is the sum total of all the physiological and chemical processes happening in your system. It’s energy management within your body and involves a balance of build up (anabolic) and breakdown (catabolic). This process is impacted by nutrition, activity, recovery, drugs, aging, sleep, disease, and more. Managing these lifestyle factors effectively is essentially to achievement of wellness goals. Sustainable results are driven by changes happening at the cellular level though energy production and utilization.
