Why Do We Get Instant Energy From Glucose?

Glucose is a simple sugar which can be readily absorbed by the body. Unlike other foods such as carbohydrates, glucose does not have to be processed by the digestive system for energy. It is directly absorbed into the bloodstream and all cells. Once inside, glucose undergoes oxidation, which results in the release of ATP, a high-energy molecule that provides energy for the cell.
