Description

http://wpdia.info/3glycogen - Glycogen is a starch based energy source created in the body from glucose which is created from carbohydrates consumed that are not used immediately for energy.

A common disease in which Glycogen management in the body becomes abnormal is diabetes in which Glycogen can become abnormally high or low.

One effective diet is called a ketogenic diet in which carbohydrate consumption is very low. This is also referred to as a low carb diet. Without carbohydrates Glycogen gets depleted which forces the body to use fat for energy.

WHAT IS GLYCOGEN Glycogen is a starch based energy souce created in the body from glucose which is created from carbohydrates consumed that are not used immediately for energy. Glycogen is mostly produce by and stored in the liver. When the body needs energy and there is no glucose from food available the stored Glycogen gets released. short link to 'what is glycogen' http://wpdia.info/3glycogen Glycogen is also stored in muscle cells and during short periods of strenuous activity, such as weight lifting, the energy is released in the muscles by direct conversion of Glycogen to lactic acid. A common disease in which Glycogen management in the body becomes abnormal is diabetes in which Glycogen can become abnormally high or low. One effective diet is called a ketogenic diet in which carbohydrate consumption is very low. This is also referred to as a low carb diet.
