GlycogenGlycogen, also known as animal starch, is a polysaccharide that acts as short-term storage for carbohydrates. These carbohydrates are mainly stored in the muscles and liver so they can be readily converted to glucose to satisfy the body’s energy needs.
Ten-percent of the liver’s weight is in glycogen – ready to be turned to energy when needed. The average person stores enough glycogen to sustain them for 12-14 hours.
