Our metabolism – the process by which our body converts food into energy – can change with age (and for many other reasons). We want to sustain it the best we can for the rest of our lives. Eating whole foods dense in nutrients, moving our bodies regularly, and reducing stress can help keep it in good health. Adding a few ingredients to that equation can optimize it. We did the Metabolism Boosting Superpowder to introduce some of these ingredients into our daily routines. It is designed for all those looking for extra support for their metabolism.
THE KEY INGREDIENTS
Metabolism Boosting Superpowder is formulated with 7-Keto DHEA, a molecule known for its thermogenic properties, i.e. it can promote energy metabolism. 7-Keto DHEA is produced naturally in the body, and the levels of its precursor, DHEA, can drop with age. In the clinically studied dose we included, 7-Keto was taken shown to stimulate metabolism and support healthy body weight when combined with a balanced diet and exercise. *
Cinnamon can be delicious in your banana bread and sprinkled over a frothy milk, but it’s good for so much more than that: Cinnamon can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels when used as part of your diet. Metabolism Boosting Superpowder is formulated with a concentrated cinnamon extract. *
The holy basil, also called tulsi, is a traditional herb used in Ayurveda for its balancing effects and to support a healthy response to stress. It is considered sacred in India and is celebrated for its adaptogenic properties. Some herbalists consider the holy basil “herbal yoga,” and it is often recommended as an everyday tonic. *
The superpowder tastes like chocolate. It’s made with organic cocoa powder and organic monk fruit extract — for just the right amount of sweetness — and it’s vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, GMO-free, paleo-friendly and keto-friendly, too. Mix a lot in a glass of water, coffee, or your favorite alternative milk. But we especially like it in a smoothie. Our food manager, Caitlin O’Malley, took advantage of it signature smoothie recipe for the occasion, but in case of doubt, go for everything that goes with the chocolate, like bananas and peanut butter. It’s not stimulating, so you can take it at any time of the day, and play well with other supplements (including High School geniuses and our other goop Benefits of vitamin protocols). For best results, consistency is the key: This is something you want to take every day.
