Your body’s main source of energy is glucose‚ or sugar‚ which it gets from the carbohydrates in your diet. When you eat carbs like fruits‚ vegetables‚ and grains‚ they’re converted into glucose‚ and then absorbed into your bloodstream. When your pancreas detects a rise in blood sugar‚ it releases a hormone called insulin‚ which stimulates your cells in preparation of absorbing glucose. Once it gets into your cells‚ it provides the energy you need to power all of your bodily functions. This is a fine-tuned process that is absolutely necessary for your health; however‚ the quality of your diet may disrupt this process.
