All carbohydrates are broken down into glucose through the process of digestion.
Once the glucose leaves the intestines, it is sent through the blood stream to the various organs and tissues that need it (the brain being the biggest user of glucose for energy), but the pancreas needs to send out insulin to the cells to allow them to accept the glucose.
The pancreas samples the amount of glucose that passes through it (through the blood circulating) to enable it to send out the right amount of insulin required.
If there is too much glucose in the blood (more than the body needs), it is mainly stored in the following organs:
* the liver
* skeletal muscles (all the muscles that are attached to the bones) A small amount is also stored in the kidneys.
The stored form of glucose is called glycogen.
Excess carbohydrates are stored as fat.
Carbohydrates, if not used by the body, are stored as fat. Not all carbohydrates are converted to fat. Upon consumption the carbohydrates may be converted to glycogen for fast use by the body.
simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates
They are stored in the muscles and liver.
Humans store carbohydrates in the liver as glycogen.
In fat cells.
Sugar and carbohydrates are stored as body fat. This is extra energy that the body doesn't need and so it is stored as fat.
When your body needs energy, it will first use carbohydrates stored in your body, sparing the protein and fats in your body. When the stored carbohydrates are depleted, the body will start using protein and fats.
humans get there energy from minerals and carbohydrates . the stored energy is changed in muscular energy.
Your body has a limited storage capacity for carbohydrates in the muscle glycogen and the liver glycogen. When those supplies are full, excess carbohydrates are stored as fat.
Up to 300 grams is stored as Glycogen and rest is converted to fats and stored as such in fat cells.
No, fats are used as energy once your body has no carbohydrates left to burn.
Carbohydrates are stored in the liver and in the muscle
Carbohydrates are absorbed and converted into glucose. The glucose can be stored as glycogen in the liver and the muscle tissue. If these are full the glucose will be converted into fat and stored.
You will put on weight, as they are converted to fat, which is stored by the body.
Carbohydrates are broken down to glucose molecules which can only be stored in very small amounts. Excess glucose which are not readily used are converted into glycogen and stored in fatty tissues of the body.
Both of them give you energy. Carbohydrates do not produce anything in your body. Fats are stored in body in large scale and give shape and smoothness to your body.
Distribution of carbohydrates in the human body is provision of energy to cells to facilitate all body processes. Carbohydrates are distributed in the form of glucose and when they are not used, they are stored as glycogen or fat.
Carbohydrates are necessary for the human body to create energy. When ingested, carbohydrates enter the digestion process and humans can obtain sugars from them that energise the body.
Carbohydrates are converted into glucose and stored in the liver to provide energy for you to execute everything everyday.
In humans, carbohydrates are synthesized in the liver. The liver breaks down the sugars and starches and sends them to off be stored in the bodies cells.
Any unused calories will be stored as fat.
