The Importance of a Balanced Macronutrient Ratio for a Healthy Metabolism

Every physiological process in the human body requires energy to function. The energy is produced from calories, or units of energy, which the body extracts from carbohydrates, protein and fats. These nutrients work in synergy to fuel your body’s vital health and levels of physical performance.

Every second there are thousands of chemical reactions occurring within the body that require the correct ratio and amount of these nutrients, vitamins, minerals and water. If there is an imbalance or deficiency in any of these areas, your metabolism will be unable to function as it should and this will effect your body’s ability to perform the way you want it to.

A healthy metabolism is the key to good health. When your metabolism is unable to function as it should, disease follows. Your metabolism can either work for you, or against you, depending on what you eat, when you eat it and how much of it you eat.
