How the Metabolism Slows Down As We Age

Metabolism is known as the process that takes food and turns it into energy so your body can function properly. Fast metabolisms are commonly associated with a healthier weight, while slower metabolisms may have a part in unhealthy weight. As we age, our body’s metabolism slows down, making it more difficult to burn calories.


This can be attributed to the loss of muscle mass with age and less physical activity. Many people do not get as much physical activity as they once did, making it even harder to burn the appropriate amount of calories to prevent weight gain. Genetics may also have a part in slowing down the metabolism.


By age 30, many people notice that it is harder to maintain a healthy weight. At this age, the body’s metabolism starts slowing down. It is estimated that with each decade of your life if you are not somewhat physically active, you could lose anywhere between 3% and 5% of your overall muscle mass.


Hormones can also impact how much your metabolism slows down with age. This varies greatly from person to person, so it can be tough to tell how much and how fast your metabolism will slow down. However, if you notice it start to drop, there may be a natural hormone treatment for you.


BioProtein Technology’s Sub-MIC is made up of compounds that assist in the breakdown and metabolism of fat in the body. It is a different approach to weight loss than traditional hormone treatments. With lipotropics, the liver functions are optimized, improving metabolic functions, turning fat into energy rather than storing it up.
