Glucose – What Is Glucose? – Foods High In Glucose – How Glucose Affects The Body

In this video I discuss what is glucose, the main functions of glucose in the body.


What is glucose? Well, glucose is a molecule, and it is known as a monosaccharide, which is the most basic unit of a carbohydrate. It is the key source of energy for all cells and organs in our bodies.

Foods high in glucose include fruits, veggies, and grains. Desserts and candy contain a lot of glucose as well. Many sweets have a lot of added sugar in them, and sugar is made up of glucose and fructose.

As mentioned before, glucose is a major source of energy in our bodies. Glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream rather quickly, so it can provide quick energy to cells. Extra glucose can get stored as glycogen in the liver or muscles, providing an energy reserve.

As with most substances in the body, too much glucose can cause problems. Over consuming any type of food, including foods with high glucose content, can lead to obesity, which in turn can lead to an increased risk of many diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and even respiratory problems.

    He sort of sounds like a calorie is a calorie promoter. Moderation is not key…. the difference between fructose and glycogen is massive and operate completely different. fructose will make you sick and is not used as body fuel but glycogen is body fuel and energy producer. that's a big difference! its not moderation but just dont ever eat fructose again.

    Onion, pepper and tomato do not count as green vegetables in the blood stream fighting to keep us from having glucose overloads from the beginning. Greens that are not laboratory created and crosscut with another veggie or fruit creation. Guys we are not Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!!! We are not cartoon characters we are human beings.
