Can’t Keep A Good Carb Down
Good Carbohydrates keep the body stored with energy
Carbohydrate terms: Glycemic Index and Low Glycemic Foods
The glycemic index refers to foods according to their potential to raise the body’s blood sugar level. Organic plant based foods are primarily low glycemic and healthy choices.
The health benefits of “good” carbs also have a strong relationship with plant foods full of fiber. These are carbs that get absorbed slowly into the body’s systems, significantly avoiding spikes in blood sugar, and keeping a healthy insulin level of activity.
