|Summary:|| Carbohydrates: When Do They Help and When Do They Hurt? discusses the positive and negative effects of carbohydrate intake. Among the positive effects that are detailed are glycogen resynthesis, performance enhancement, and attenuation of the stress response to exercise. A list of the negative effects that are outlined includes stimulation of oxidative stress and inflammation. The video explores the fact that whether carbohydrates induce positive or negative effects is influenced by a number of factors, including exercise type, fitness, body fatness, and age. The video examines how these factors might influence the carbohydrate intake recommendations for athletes, compared to individuals who are exercising to improve their health.
