What is Nutrient Partitioning, and Why Does it Matter?

What is Nutrient Partitioning?

How your body digests food and uses the energy from nutrients is at the centre of your metabolic health. Some of what you eat helps your organs and muscles stay healthy and strong; and some of the nutrient energy you consume gets stored as fat.

It’s a process called “nutrient partitioning” (that’s where the name SciMar NuPa Daily comes from). If your nutrient partitioning is optimal, you’ll feel stronger, you’ll have more energy, and your organs are going to work better. If your nutrient partitioning is poor, you are more likely to be pudgy and listless.

Here’s how it works.

After you eat, your body absorbs nutrient energy as glucose which, as you probably know, is a type of sugar. You will use some of that glucose almost immediately for the energy your body needs right now. How the excess glucose is used determines whether you’ll have the energy and strength to help your friend move to a new apartment this weekend, or only enough energy to show up later for the beer and pizza (which are among the last things you should have if your nutrient partitioning is poor!).

Some of that excess glucose will be stored as glycogen in your muscles; some will be stored in fat cells as triglycerides. You have to get that balance right.

According to SciMar’s science, there’s a hormone called hepatalin* that is produced by the liver. When you are producing enough hepatalin, your nutrient partitioning will be just fine (tell your buddy you’ll be there at 3:00 to move the couch). If your liver is not producing enough hepatalin, your pancreas will make more insulin to compensate. If you produce too much insulin, too much nutrient energy will be stored as fat.

So, what causes your hepatalin production to drop? Age is one factor, a lousy diet is another, and sitting on your friend’s couch too much instead of helping to move it is yet another.

How can SciMar NuPa Daily help? With its patented and potent combination of two vitamins and something called S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe), SciMar NuPa Daily is designed to protect your hepatalin production, effectively freezing your current level of nutrient partitioning in time. At the same time, while supporting your metabolism, the combined ingredients in SciMar NuPa Daily will boost your immune system and help you with mood balance.

Order SciMar NuPa Daily today and give your hepatalin production and nutrient partitioning the protection they need. Your body will thank you. And that friend who needs help with his move? He’ll really thank you.

*In the academic literature, hepatalin is known as hepatic insulin-sensitizing substance (the “HISS” hormone).
