10 Simple Strategies to Boost Your Metabolism

Is your metabolism feeling a little sluggish lately? Could it use a boost?

Against this backdrop, you can consider five of the safest and most practical secrets to hone your metabolic health and efficiency.

Instead, they can affect lipid profiles, inflammation, metabolic rate, blood-sugar management and even help stimulate building muscle tissue — all important for optimizing metabolism and maintaining a healthy weight.
