Your body produces energy through the foods you eat and the air you breathe. Carbohydrates are considered one of the greatest sources of energy for athlete because they can be broken down into smaller sugars (glucose, fructose, and galactose).
Whatever glucose you do not use right away gets broken down and stored within your liver as well as your muscles in the form of glycogen. This occurs during an anaerobic process known as glycolysis, which is the beginning part of cellular respiration. During this process energy is from glucose bonds to phosphate bonds in adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. ATP is then used to power cells within your body.
Glycogen is the most readily available source of energy, and is most accessible during short bursts of activity like weight lifting and sprinting. The length of this energy supply is largely determined by the intensity and duration of exercise. It also supplies energy during those initial minutes of a sporting event. During endurance exercise, glycogen is useful for breaking down fat stores as a source of energy for your muscles.
Save Your Energy
To avoid running out of energy during exercise, it is important to begin with full glycogen stores. You must also replenish during exercise as well as after exercise to help repair and build new glycogen stores for the following day.
However, storing glycogen isn’t as simple as loading and depleting carbohydrates. In order to replenish glycogen stores, you need to establish a current within your cells to increase cellular respiration. With a greater established current, your body is able to store glucose as glycogen for energy later on.
Glucose is stored as glycogen under the condition of proper cellular current within the reductive system. After exercise, your body can replenish its supply of glycogen by using glucose in your blood stream, which comes from the glycogen in your liver or from the carbohydrates in your food. The only way for glucose to enter your blood stream is through the cells where they are needed.
Glucose transporters known as GLUT-4 allows glucose to enter the cells, but cells can only take in as much glucose as these transporters allow. The higher your fitness levels the greater amount of GLUT-4 transporters your body contains.
This translates to the ability to build glycogen levels at a faster rate. It also decreases your fat stores because any left over glycogen not able to store within the muscle or liver will eventually get stored as fat. The more readily your body is able to store glycogen, then less likely the carbohydrates you eat will turn into fat stores.
But in order to complete this process, you need healthy cells that have a positive electrical current. This means cellular health is the vital component when it comes to processing and storing energy in the form of glycogen.
Cellular Cleansing Means Greater Energy
Cellular cleansing allows your cells to bring in more glycogen, increasing your energy levels with each workout. This process helps avoid hitting the wall during training, whether you train for speed, endurance, or power.
Taking I.N. Extreme Energy after each workout will allow your cells to expel toxic waste built up from oxidative stress. This enhances your cellular energy production, allow vital nutrients, including glycogen, to reach your cells.
Not only will I.N. Extreme Energy increase natural energy stores, but it will also boost your immune system, reducing the amount of sick days during the year.
