1. Immediate Energy.
Our bodies take sugar and convert it very quickly into energy. The system is quite complex, but in basic terms, the stomach kicks off the process and once the partially digested sugar passes to the small intestine, it is released from there into the bloodstream for use. Because sugar is the source of ready fuel used by our bodies, eating some is necessary when you’re out of energy. It’s best to get your sugar from whole food sources like fruit or complex carbohydrates such as whole grain bread or crackers.
