Naturally Occuring Compound Increases Metabolism

Cooked Broccoli SoupA compound called NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) found in broccoli, cabbage, cucumber, edamame and avocado was found to improve metabolism, aid in weight loss and improve energy!

"NMN administration helps energy metabolism by improving the function of mitochondria, which operate as cellular power plants. They also found that mice given NMN gained less weight with aging even as they consumed more food, likely because their boosted metabolism generated more energy for physical activity."

Another reason to eat these foods on a daily basis. I always use avocado in my shakes, and I steam broccoli and add grass fed butter and sea salt and eat that on a daily basis as well!
