Why is metabolism important?
The food you eat is converted to energy for the body to use via a process called metabolism. This energy (measured in calories or kilojoules, or kJ) is used to perform important functions such as breathing, the circulation of blood and digestion. Your metabolism affects how much energy is used to carry out these vital functions.1
Many factors influence your metabolism, including diet, exercise and the ageing process. For example, if you eat an energy-dense diet that contains more kilojoules than your body needs to carry out metabolism and any physical activity you perform, then the extra energy will be stored as fat.1
Chromium aids sugar and fat metabolism
Chromium is an important mineral that’s responsible for a range of processes in the body. It helps with the break down (or metabolism) of dietary fats, carbohydrates (sugars) and proteins into smaller compounds that the body can convert into usable energy for metabolic processes.
Chromium also helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and assists the metabolism of dietary fats.
