Designed Nutritional Products Glycogen


 Glycogen is the reserve energy store of many organisms. Commonly referred to as animal starch, it is found predominately in the liver and resting muscle tissue of mammals. Glycogen is also found in insects, mollusks, fungi, and lower plant forms. Glycogen is considered an efficient form of energy storage and is broken down to glucose by the body to perform work. Animal based glycogen is also used in cosmetics.
