Best Answer

Carbohydrates are transported throughout the body in the form of glucose. Glucose is carried in the blood by two main methods:

  • Simple Diffusion: This is when glucose molecules move along their concentration gradient meaning they move from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration.
  • Active Transport: This is when glucose is actively transported across the cell membrane from areas of low concentration to areas of high concentration with the help of special proteins called transporters.

These two methods of glucose transportation are essential for the body to maintain its proper functioning as glucose is the primary source of energy for all cells in the body.
