 What slows down the metabolism - how to fix it?

One of the main causes of obesity and increased levels of body fat is the problem of a very slow metabolism. Elimination of potential risk factors can prove effective in eliminating this problem. What slows down the metabolism and how to fix it?

What slows down the metabolism: lack of physical activity

A sedentary lifestyle has become a problem these days, especially in times of epidemics and telecommuting. Many people limit physical activity to a minimum, which certainly leads to a slow metabolism. How do you treat this situation? Nobody is suggesting that you

 immediately decide to run a marathon or lift Olympic weights - introducing regular walking, cycling, or light strength and endurance exercises (eg, exercises at home with your own body weight) will certainly prove beneficial in boosting metabolism.

What slows down the metabolism: a bad diet

A poor diet is one of the most serious risk factors. An unbalanced diet, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and a high intake of processed foods slow down the metabolism. A low metabolic rate is usually a result of:

  •  Excessive consumption of saturated and trans fats
  •  Excessive amounts of simple sugars (monosaccharides and disaccharides)
  • Limited or low amount of dietary fiber
  • Inadequate consumption of complete plant and animal proteins.

Can we fix it? Contacting an experienced nutritionist, who will develop a personalized nutritional plan, should solve the problem of a very sluggish metabolism. In addition, it is a good idea to consider enriching your daily diet with nutritional supplements, especially products manufactured according to pharmaceutical standards. Olymp Sport Nutrition

 products are the perfect choice! Supplements with 100% Whey Protein Complex and Plant-Based Protein Complex will help you supplement your daily diet with optimal servings of complete protein. While Gold Omega 3 capsules provide your body with high-quality polyunsaturated fatty acids (including EPA and DHA).

What slows down the metabolism: Excessive stress

Long-term stress increases the production of cortisol, a hormone compound that causes a number of abnormalities in the body. One consequence is an increase in blood sugar levels which, as we know, leads to insulin secretion and interferes with the normal metabolism of adipose tissue. This has the effect of slowing down the metabolism and increasing the risk of weight gain.


How do we treat it? Sometimes it is very difficult to avoid stressful situations, but thanks to some nutritional supplements, it is possible to limit their effects on the body. Adapto-Fuel capsules from Olimp Sport Nutrition are a very good solution. It is a well-researched

 combination of four natural adaptogens (Bacopa monnieri, Rhodiola rosea, a patented form of Ashwagandha KSM-66 and Siberian ginseng) and an optimally selected amount of L-tyrosine. The product can be used to combat mental and physical fatigue and support stress management.
