Everyone talks about "metabolism." Slow metabolisms, fast metabolisms, metabolic adaptation, stubborn metabolisms, all that.
But... what actually is "your metabolism?" Can you point to it?
Today's episode was inspired by a follower question essentially asking me to help her better understand what "metabolism" actually means. So lets talk allllll about
-what "metabolism" actually is from a physical perspective (definition time)
-what metabolism practically means
-the different components of your metabolism
-how those components change/adapt in various scenarios
-what having a "slow" or "fast" metabolism actually means
-a couple examples of why and how metabolisms adapt to periods of low energy
-how metabolic rate is tested
Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.
My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at foursigmatic.com/emdunc.
