Carbohydrates and physical activity

Adequate reserves of carbohydrates (muscle glycogen, liver glycogen and blood glucose) are the decisive factor for optimal performance in sports. Daily adequate intake of carbohydrates is necessary to replenish muscle and liver in the period between daily training sessions or between competitions. Consuming carbohydrates before physical exertion helps to achieve good results due to replenishment of glycogen stores in muscles and liver, and during the load - to improve the performance by maintaining blood glucose levels and oxidation of carbohydrates.
