    The function of carbohydrates is to give energy to all the cells in our body and they fuel the basal
    metabolic rate (the rate at which we use energy at rest) and activity levels. Carbohydrates are split into four groups each have their own role in the body. The groups are: monosaccharide, d.isaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides. They're used in different cells for different purposes and play an important role in the immune system, reproduction, blood coagulation, and more. Carbs also produce glucose which gives you that quick spurt of energy but the cells do not use.all of the glucose so it reserves some and stores it in your liver and muscles as glycogen. Once there is enough in reserve the rest turns to fat.
