Carbohydrates

Why is it necessary to purchase Carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates (or carbs) are macronutrients, the elements from which the organism is able to obtain energy. Depending on the carbohydrate source, they will also provide other important substances called micronutrients, also known as vitamins and minerals.

Depending on their molecular structure, they may provide fiber as well. When one of these last types of carbohydrates is consumed, our digestive system must break them down to their molecular unit, which is glucose. Then, it will be transported by the bloodstream to be used as the main source of energy for the brain, muscles and other tissues and cells.

The main function of carbohydrates in our organism is to provide energy for our daily activities, even though it also has other properties and benefits:

  • Regulating the blood glucose
  • Preventing ketosis
  • Adding flavor
  • Providing fiber
  • Controlling the insulin

There are different types of carbohydrates:

  • Simple carbohydrates: monosaccharides (Glucose, Fructose and Galactose) and disaccharides (Saccharose, inverted sugar, Lactose and Maltose).
  • Complex carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are closely connected to sport, since they are used to obtain the following benefits:

  • Providing an effective energy supply
  • Allowing us to keep the intensity of the activity
  • Prolonging the duration of the activity
  • Improve the recovery
