The Metabolic Approach™
At sigma-tau we developed the Metabolic Approach™, which is the basis to all our products.
Metabolism is at the core of life. It creates the body and makes it work, reproduce, fight invaders, and age. When metabolic disruption goes beyond a certain limit the body falls ill or dies.
What is Metabolism?
Placing oneself in front of a mirror means watching metabolism itself: our body, its movements, its reactions to the environment “are” our metabolism.
If any of the metabolic processes in our body changes or does not work properly our body might not be able to react properly to disease, ageing and to all the adversities that are part of everyday life.
Micronutrients are the fuel to our metabolism and different metabolic processes need different micronutrients.
The metabolic process may change if these micronutrients are no longer at an optimal level.
A shortage of nutrients may be caused by any of the following factors:
- lack of a particular nutrient caused by bad diet
- Aging – as we grow older, metabolism becomes less efficient and we find it harder to absorb the micronutrients we need
- Illness – oxidative stress caused by the body’s reaction to illness may bring about a lack of nutrients
- Increased energy requirements
What is the Metabolic Approach?
The metabolic approach is the targeted administration of micronutrients aimed at supporting or correcting the metabolic changes occurring in disease and aging and related to the suboptimal nutritional status of selected nutrients, in order to improve the quality of life, particularly second half of it.
