The Balancing Act. Building Up and Breaking Down Must be Equal

Metabolism is necessary to maintain life.  The name Metabolism itself means "change".  This change is brought about by  the metabolic activities. The building up and  disintegration process are the phases of metabolism or are metabolic activities.

 

Catabolism :  cata + (meta) bolism.  'Cata'  means, 'down.'  Breaking Down

Catabolism is a process consisting of reactions, in which larger molecules are disintegrated  into smaller ones.

The outcome of Catabolic activity :  The Energy  is released in the process. breaking down bigger things to make smaller things

An example --  digestion of proteins .  Here protein is broken down into amino acids, so as to be absorbed by your body  and , then , use through the metabolic process, storing glycogen in the Liver for energy.

Catabolic Hormones : Glucagon, Cortisol, Adrenalin, Cytokines

 

Anabolism :  ana + (meta) bolism.  'Ana' refers to  'up.'  Building Up. 

Anabolism is a process consisting of all of the reactions during which  a group of small molecules are integrated into larger ones and then stored as energy in newly formed chemical bonds.  The function of this  process is to create new cells, maintain  the already existing cells  and  create energy reserves for the body.  This process is also known as biosynthesis, allows the body to grow new cells and maintain all the tissues, thus maintains life.

The outcome of Aanabolic activity :  The Energy is used up in the process, making larger things out of smaller ones.

An example --  the cluster of amino acids into larger proteins and the synthesis of  fat and glycogen for the person to use as energy.
The  mineralization and growth of bone, increase in muscle mass are another examples of anabolic metabolic activity.

Anabolic hormones are- Insulin, Estrogen, Testosterone,hormones involved in the growth of the uterus and placenta, Growth hormones.

 

When you have had your meal, then anabolic activity is dominant.  When you are working out, catabolic activity is predominant.

Do you know,   that the rate at which your metabolism works , is not constant.  Sometimes,  your metabolism is slow and at times, it is fast.  Both the process are interconnected, one is not possible without another. Catabolic activities produce energy required by  the anabolic.  activities.  And, at times, the former process produces more energy than required by the latter.  The result will be excess energy .  This excess energy is stored as fat and glycogen. This is the reason why you become overweight.

Metabolism Slow :   When your body at rest, has lower energy expenditure than the normal, you are said to have slow or sluggish metabolism.   
What contributes to this slow metabolism
?   Inadequate intake of minerals from food and poor assimilation of minerals.

The  adverse effect of slow metabolism is  Obesity .  Since, metabolism is slow, you tend to burn  less fat than in normal condition and higher amount of fat is stored in the body.

 

Metabolism Fast :   When your body at rest, expends more energy than normal, you have fast metabolism.  In this condition, your body burns a lot of fat and is not stored in the body.  Lean and thin people are those whose metabolism is fast.

Thus, the metabolism needs to function optimally, neither slow nor fast.  And you must know that  proper functioning of your metabolism depends on  the appropriate functioning of  your  Hormones

 

So, if you have a slow metabolism or fast , you can change  it! It can be fixed, repaired and refinished — just like a piece of  furniture.

 

If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned on Metabolism page,  do not overlook them, as these are the harbinger of an impaired metabolism. So, If your answer is yes to any of these signs, scroll down and   ind out the tips that will help you... --
