pathway

Many basic metabolic pathways show striking similarities throughout the bacterial, plant and animal kingdoms.

process

Buffer base reflects metabolic processes which influence acid-base balance.

Stoichiometric procedures also help the biochemist to follow the metabolic processes that take place in organisms.

The remedies seem to have the power to help harmonize the body's metabolic processes and to correct imbalances in them.

As a bonus, water has particular electro-chemical qualities that make it an ideal reagent in many of life's metabolic processes .

rate

Your metabolic rate will fall; eating just average amounts of food will tend to make you fat.

Aerobic exercise and reduced-calorie diets produce weight loss, but reduce the resting metabolic rate because they do not maintain muscle mass.

Larger animals require more food than smaller animals, but smaller animals have a higher metabolic rate .
