All-Day Energy

Having enough energy to soar through your day without lulls or fog is one of the best feelings. Adequate sleep, exercise, and that morning cup of coffee can help you feel fresh and alert, and adding in foods that support a healthy metabolism can help sustain that energy as the day goes on. Metabolism is the process by which your body converts food into the energy that fuels all of your body’s basic functions—that includes breathing, blood circulation, growing new cells, and more.

There are some vitamins and minerals that can support this process, and they’re widely available in many of the whole foods we eat every day. Niacin, a B vitamin, is in poultry, salmon, tuna, brown rice, and peanuts. Magnesium can be found in pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, almonds, cashews, and black beans. And we can get iron from white beans, lentils, dark chocolate, spinach, tofu, and sardines. We picked some breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks starring one or more of these metabolism-supporting ingredients.

If you’re looking to add on to what you’re eating, our High School Genes vitamin and supplement regimen addresses multiple systems in the body that contribute to optimal metabolism. Every daily packet includes B vitamins, cinnamon, and green tea extract—to name a few more ingredients that support healthy glucose and energy metabolism. (For those wondering, you can take High School Genes along with the superpowder mentioned below.)*

Many nuts and seeds contain vitamins and minerals that can support your metabolism, which makes porridges, granolas, and chia puddings an easy way to get energy first thing. If savory is more your vibe, black beans in a scramble or a breakfast burrito will do the trick. If you’re in a hurry, add our goop Wellness Metabolism-Boosting Superpowder to a smoothie. It contains a clinically studied dose of 7-Keto® DHEA which can help boost your metabolic rate when combined with a balanced diet and exercise. It also contains a concentrated cinnamon extract that can help maintain blood sugar levels when used as part of your diet, and holy basil, which is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to support balance and a healthy response to stress. It’s easy, and that bittersweet chocolate tastes so good.*
