FACTORS AFFECTING METABOLISM

Rezultat iskanja slik za diet "about us"

Given below are vital factors that affect metabolic rate:

  • Gender: Males are tended to have the faster metabolism than females.
  • Diet: Several traits of our diet affect metabolism. As the lack of iodine for optimal thyroid function can slow down metabolism.
  • Genetics: Certain genetic disorders affect metabolism.
  • Drugs: Drugs like antidepressants have a tendency to increase weight gain by adversely affecting the metabolic rate. While caffeine and nicotine enhance metabolism.
  • Muscle Mass: Muscle mass is defined as an amount of muscle tissue in the body. Contrary to fats, muscles need more energy to function. Higher the muscle mass higher is the metabolic rate.
  • Physical Activity: Exercise helps to get muscle mass. As mentioned above, the more muscle mass your body has, the more calories it burns to feed those muscles.
  • Age: As one’s age progresses, his or her metabolic rate slow down. This is primarily because of loss of muscle mass.
  • Environment Effects: If it’s too cold or hot, our body works more efficiently to sustain its normal temperature thus affects the metabolic rate as well.

 

STAGES OF METABOLISM

There are two steps of metabolism:

  • Anabolism: It allows the body to produce new cells and sustain the tissues and generates reserves
  • Catabolism: It breaks down the nutrients to produce energy. During catabolism, long chains of molecules are broken down into single units.
  • The energy created by catabolism is used in anabolism to grow cells, repair tissues and reproduce.

Proteins build tissues in the body. Proteins are crucial for living beings because they contain amino acids.
