Metabolism & Energy
How much energy we feel we have, both mentally and physically is dictated by many things including our nutrition, our sleep and our lifestyle. While the rate at which our metabolism works is dictated by your age, body composition, gender and hormones. Lifestyle factors such as low exercise levels, excess stress and inadequate nutritional intake can affect both our energy levels and metabolism.
If you’re looking to improve your metabolic rate, our products can support you in improving your exercise performance and energy levels so you can feel at your best.
For a pre workout caffeine hit try our Coffee + Collagen with natural nootropics and adaptogens and the joint protection of collagen.
Cacao contains important plant compounds that are excellent for mental energy as well as memory and learning. Our Cacao + Collagen may be just what you need to get your mind ready for a busy day. If you’re on a keto diet or you simply want additional energy, try our MCT fats - they’re efficiently converted into ketones for extra mental energy.

CAN I EXERCISE WHILST FASTED?
Absolutely! When you exercise in a fasted state it dramatically increases fat burning and muscle growth as you produce up to 300 times more growth hormone. Without the glucose and glycogen to pull energy from during your workout, your body is forced to adapt and pull its energy from fat. Since your metabolic demand during a workout is significantly higher than at rest, you will be burning more body fat during your workout. This leads to a much more efficient and effective workout giving you amazing fat burning results!
WILL MISSING BREAKFAST AFFECT MY METABOLISM?
If you consume a healthy balanced diet, you have nothing to worry about. Keep in mind that the old saying ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ was created by a breakfast cereal company, it’s not based on scientific evidence. Of course, it’s the nutritional quality of the foods you consume across the day that’s of primary importance for your general health and wellbeing.
IS MCT BETTER THAN COCONUT OIL IN TERMS OF FAT BURNING AND KETONES?
Yes, MCT is vastly superior as it comprises only the key medium chain fats C8 and C10, which are readily converted into energy and ketones that help facilitate a state of ketosis. As a general guide you would need to take 6 tablespoons of coconut oil to gain the same amount of those helpful C8 and C10 medium chain triglycerides found in one tablespoon of MCT.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?
There are so many different styles of intermittent fasting, time restricting eating, ketogenic diets and keto-fasting to choose from and they are all great tools for helping with healthy weight management. Our advice would be to consult with your GP or a local Nutritional Therapist for guidance when selecting the most appropriate fasting strategy, one that suits your lifestyle, capabilities, level of activity and goals. Whichever strategy you settle on, our products are designed to help support weight management and encourage healthy food habits to keep you focused on achieving your goals.
