Carbohydrates to Help Prevent Digestive Upset

This is a question that always comes up, “what are some good sources of carbohydrates to help prevent digestive upset”. There is so much information put out on if carbohydrates are good are bad for you, and whether you should be including them into you daily routine. Unfortunately carbohydrates have built up a poor reputation in the past due to so many low carbohydrate diets that have been recommended to improve body composition and weight loss. In the case of people with digestive issues, limiting the intake of carbohydrates may have also been recommended due to some people having a harder time breaking them down. In order to understand a little bit more about carbohydrates your need to first need to know why carbohydrates are important.

 Why Carbohydrates Are Important

  • They are broken down into usable sources of energy by the body.
  • They help you recover from physical exercise

  • They can be used to increase the function of amino acids, lipids and the Krebs cycle

As you can see carbohydrates are used by the body for many functions important to your health and longevity, therefore eating good sources in your foods is also important.

However in order to get the most out of the carbohydrates you intake in your diet it is also important to intake ample amounts of the following vitamins through food or supplements.
