Vitamins & Diets : Why Are Carbohydrates Important to Organisms?

Hi, I’m Rachael Richardson, with Nutrolution,
in South Beach, Florida. In this clip, we’re talking about why are carbohydrates important
organisms. So, carbohydrates come from basically, all the different foods that grow in the ground,
so particularly your fruits and your vegetables, as well as your grain foods like your rice,
and your oats, and your corn, and potatoes. All of these are rich in carbohydrates, and
carbohydrates actually go into the body and they help you produce energy, so ATP. So,
carbohydrates break down into glucose. Glucose goes through your metabolic chambers, and
the result is ATP, or energy. Everybody needs carbohydrates. This is how we derive all of
our energy to do all the different functions that our body needs, so I definitely recommend
getting somewhere around eighty to a hundred and twenty grams at least of carbohydrates
a day coming from your natural foods that grow from the ground. This is Rachael, with
Nutrolution, in Miami Beach, Florida.
