Do you know what “metabolic health” is?
It refers to falling within “healthy” thresholds of five key areas:
- Blood sugar (fasting glucose under 100 mg/dL).
- Blood pressure (130/85 or under).
- “Good” cholesterol (HDL cholesterol higher than 40 mg/dL).
- Waist circumference (35 inches or smaller for women and 40 inches or smaller for men).
- Triglycerides (fat in your blood, under 150 mg/dL).
Which means you skyrocket your chance of developing “silent killer” disorders like heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and liver disease. AKA: the top causes of death in the US.
Metabolic health doesn’t just affect your physical body.
Massive amounts of harmful fats and toxins can lead to mental and emotional imbalances, too.
Like depression and anxiety. As well as more serious memory-related issues like dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Why is Metabolic Health Important?
Metabolic health is important because it influences the biggest causes of mortality in the world (especially in the US).
But before you even get to that point, your metabolic health impacts how you look, feel, and show up each and every day.
When your metabolic health is in check, you’ll experience more energy throughout the day, which means you’ll enjoy life more.
It also plays into:
- Mental clarity and info retention.
- How well you sleep.
- Clear skin and reduced wrinkles.
- Ability to burn fat and maintain a healthy weight.
- Immune function.
- Improved sexual function and fertility.
Not to mention mood stability.
But the good news is…
There are simple, at-home ways you can improve your metabolic health – and slash your risk of being one of the millions of people experiencing this silent crisis.
3 Ways to Beat the Metabolic Health Crisis
1. Boost your NAD production.
NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an important chemical compound that naturally takes place in our bodies.
It’s involved in energy production, as well as acting as a defensive barrier inside our cells.
It’s literally involved in helping us stay alive longer.
When we’re young, we have crazy amounts of NAD in our cells.
It’s why kids have boundless energy – and zero wrinkles.
As we get older, our NAD production slows down.
Which is why WE tend to slow down… and get more frail and prone to illnesses.
But when you get your NAD production up and running again, it helps:
- Reverse premature aging.
- Slash inflammation (and therefore risk of diseases caused by it).
- Improve bone density and joint health.
- Skyrocket energy (without caffeine or sugar!)
- Stubborn weight to slide off (especially around the midsection).
The cool thing is… you can boost your NAD production naturally.
But you have to go through a side door.
‘Cause you can’t impact NAD directly.
So how exactly do you do that?
2. Take a supplement with NMN.
While you can’t impact NAD directly, you can impact NMN (which is a precursor to NAD).
Essentially, if you bump up your NMN, it in turn bumps up your body’s NAD production.
NMN (or nicotinamide mononucleotide) is an organic molecule found in common salad ingredients, like edamame, broccoli, cabbage, cucumber, and avocado.
And while that’s fine if you’re operating at healthy levels… most people aren’t.
So supplementing NMN is often your best bet to increase NAD production.
That’s actually how I fill up my cells with NMN: using MetaPWR
, which is chock full of NMN – and helps boost my energy naturally and keeps my metabolic health in tiptop shape.
Adding a supplement with NMN to your daily regimen is one of the first steps to improving your metabolic health, getting your waistline back, and revving up energy.
3. Get more collagen.
Collagen is one of my favorite supplements.
It’s natural, has a wide range of amazeballs benefits, and it helps me feel like I’m 10 years younger.
The biggest thing I’ve noticed is my skin is more elastic – AKA the fine lines and wrinkles are actually going away!
Until now, it’s been incredibly difficult for our internal systems to process collagen when ingested.
Which is why I’m so obsessed with the MetaPWR
This is the cutting-edge system that’s made collagen 12x more bioavailable than those old school collagen supplements on health food store shelves.
AND – it’s combined with that NAD/NMN that helps reverse premature aging, decrease biological age, and boost energy.
All in one tasty powder you add to your morning water.
You don’t have to be a crazy supplement person like me (no joke, I take about 20 supplements a day)…
…to get these anti-aging benefits.
dōTERRA’s MetaPWR system pulls everything you need together in one MEGA metabolic health booster.
This is an at-home, simple protocol that easily works into your daily routine.
And it’s the easiest way to kick-start your metabolic health journey.
Friend, I want you to be around for a long time.
You’re here for a reason.
You have something important to contribute.
You get to make a difference (whether you believe it or not, it’s true!)
So many of us put others first – and our health last – limiting what our impact can be.
I don’t want that for you.
When you feel great in your bod, you’re more likely to funnel that energy and drive into something meaningful.
Whether that’s your biz… causes you care about… or relationships.
So if you’ve been carrying around a case of the blahs, jumpstart your journey back to holistic health and happiness by addressing your metabolic health.
