Abstract:

Dr Cramer reviews the biochemistry of carbohydrate metabolism and discusses the importance of carbohydrate quality and timing in sports nutrition. Sports nutrition principles can translate to performance nutrition, which applies more broadly beyond sport to all human performance. Of particular interest is the use of performance nutrition, sometimes through reverse engineering of sports nutrition, to support metabolic health and quality of life in older adults, in whom carbohydrate storage and blood glucose fluctuations may best be limited.
