Why carbs important


Have you ever thought why you are very active sometimes and sometimes, you are not? Sometimes you are very quick in doing your job and sometimes you remain slow. Your activity level is mostly controlled by carbohydrate you consume from your meal. It is considered as fuel to your body just like gas or petrol for car.


If you don’t take required amount of carbohydrate in your meal then your mental and physical activity will be hindered. Athletes and persons who want to increase their energy and stamina require carbohydrate as core nutrition.  Carbohydrates are stored in your muscles in the form of energy. At the same time it helps protein to be used in muscle building instead of being fuel.


On the other hand carb is stored in your body in the form of glycogen and most of the glycogen is stored in the liver. Some glycogen is also found in muscle and blood. Your workout intensity level mostly depends on glycogen which is found in muscle. If you have lower level of glycogen then you will less likely be able to perform at your highest ability. Liver glycogen is required for your brain. This kind of glycogen is converted into energy and it is released to bloodstream for maintaining a balanced blood sugar level.
