Most people know that having too much sugar in their diet is bad for their health. While it’s true that nutritionists recommend that we get only approximately 10% of our daily calorie intake from sugars, there are times when our bodies demand an immediate energy boost.
- When we consume sugar water, our bodies absorb the sugar molecules into the bloodstream where they are taken by our cells and converted into energy.
- Sucrose, the sugar molecule found in most store-bought table sugars, has been found to have a faster absorption rate than other types of sugars.
Research shows that the relatively simple components of sugar water could be a better energy source than store-bought sweetened drinks.
