Fermentation Vs Respiration

fermentation  vs  respiration

Fermentation and Respiration processes are responsible for creating energy derived from glucose molecule. How do you achieve this goal?  Intake of sugar for energy giving in the right proportions is vital.  However, too much of it is not good for your health. Extra sugar in the body could result in health issues such as heart problems.  There are two types of sugars, intrinsic and extrinsic sugars.

  Fermentation Respiration
Elaboration Occurs during anaerobic condition Production of energy that comes from glucose or from another organic chemical after it is released from its chemical bonds due to a molecular breakdown
ATP Generates less ATP compare to respiration Generates more ATP than fermentation
Oxygen Doesn’t used oxygen Uses oxygen

Intrinsic sugars are mainly from natural foods such as fruits, and milk.  These are provided by nature and therefore not harmful.  Extrinsic sugars are unhealthy sugars – your body does not need yet you delight in taking them. These are the sugars added to foods such as ice cream, cake, biscuit and soft drinks.

Respiration is the “production of energy that comes from glucose or from another organic chemical after it is released from its chemical bonds.” The energy is utilized for physiological functions such as muscle contraction and electrical impulses.

Whether your health goal is sleeping more soundly, better mental focus or reducing the risk of sugar related diseases, your aim should be to reduce sugar intake to allow fermentation take effect and reduce fatty acid build up that create challenges in the body.
