Carbohydrates

Simple, complex, fast-absorbing or slower-absorbing, do you know all the types of carbohydrates that exist?, do you know how they act in our body? or what is the best way to take advantage of their benefits? Keep reading to find out!

 

What are carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates are made up of molecules called saccharides, whose main unit is glucose or monosaccharide (the form in which carbohydrates provide energy to the body). Carbohydrates provide approximately 70% of the daily energy we need to function properly.

 

Types of carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are classified as simple or complex, differing in their structure, digestibility, and absorption rate.

 

Simple carbohydrates

The simple carbohydrates These are the carbohydrates that break down most easily in our body (quickly absorbed) and are used rapidly as energy. They are found naturally in fruits or milk and its derivatives.

 

Complex carbohydrates

The complex carbohydrates These are the ones that the body takes longer to digest (slow absorption). The sugars in their composition are released slowly and progressively, making the energy last over time. They also provide a greater feeling of fullness.

 

When to take carbohydrate shakes?

It is important to consume them before and during a workout (when it lasts more than an hour).

What is the best carbohydrate?

There is no one better than another, the effectiveness of each product depends on your weight, age, size, training, and goal.

 

Is it consumed only by bodybuilders?

Carbohydrates are a vital element both for those who practice some physical activity or sport, as well as for those who simply seek to complement their daily diet.

 

Importance of carbohydrate supplements for athletes

An adequate intake of carbohydrates contributes to:

○ Recover normal muscle function (contraction) after high-intensity or long-duration physical exercise that leads to muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen stored in skeletal muscles.

○ Maintain normal brain function.

Improve recovery between sets and workouts.

○ Reduce muscle degradation.

○ Promote optimal performance and maintain intensity.

○ Replenish glycogen stores.

○ Delay the onset of fatigue.
