Our metabolism – the process by which our bodies convert food into energy – can change as we age (and for many other reasons). We want to support them as best we can throughout our lives. Eating nutritious whole foods, exercising regularly, and reducing stress can all help keep our bodies healthy. Adding a few other ingredients to this equation can optimize it. We developed the Metabolism-Boosting Superpowder to introduce some of these ingredients into our everyday lives. It is intended for anyone looking for additional metabolism support.

THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS
The Metabolism-Boosting Superpowder is formulated with 7-Keto DHEA, a molecule known for its thermogenic properties, which means it can boost energy metabolism. 7-keto DHEA is naturally produced in the body, and levels of its precursor DHEA can decrease with age. In the clinically studied dose we have included, 7-Keto has been shown to boost metabolism and support a healthy body weight when combined with a balanced diet and practice. *
Cinnamon may be delicious in your banana bread and sprinkled over a frothy latte, but it’s good for so much more than that: cinnamon can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels when used as part of your diet. The Metabolism-Boosting Superpowder is formulated with a concentrated cinnamon extract. *
Holy basil, also called tulsi, is an herb traditionally used in Ayurveda for its balancing effects and to support a healthy response to stress. It is considered sacred in India and celebrated for its adaptogenic properties. Some herbalists consider holy basil “the yoga of herbs,” and it is often recommended as a daily tonic. *
WHAT TO EXPECT
The super powder tastes like chocolate. It consists of organic cocoa powder and organic monk fruit extract – for just the right amount of sweetness – and is vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, GMO-free, paleo-friendly and also keto-friendly. It is great to mix in a glass of water, coffee or your favorite milk alternative. But we especially love it in a smoothie. Our Food Director, Caitlin O’Malley, has created a unique smoothie recipe for the occasion, but in case of doubt anything that goes well with chocolate, such as bananas and peanut butter. It’s non-stimulatory, so you can take it any time of the day, and it pairs well with other nutritional supplements (including High School Genes and our other Goop Wellness vitamin protocols). For best results, consistency is key: this is something that you should be taking on a daily basis.
