With respect to digestion, we talk of two fates The absorptive and post absorptive states. Think of a meal as earning a wage. You may use a bit but you’ll save some, if sage. And the ratio is something you always must gauge. It can certainly change as one does age. Up to four hours after a meal Before your insides are resting from their zeal Insulin is governing lots of the chemistry In your body’s energy registry. It promotes glycogenesis, glycogen production The storage of glucose, a major reduction. Lipogenesis will also take place After a meal at an increased pace. And of course, protein synthesis also increases As your body builds up new pieces. But after four hours, post absorptive will dominate And glucagon is the hormone that it will nominate. It will cause the breakdown of things that were built So that sources are available when you need them to the hilt. It promotes glycogenolysis, the reverse of the above Because now your blood glucose might need a shove. Lipolysis, too, is also promoted Proteolysis as well, just as devoted. While insulin and glucagon both promote their actions They also inhibit the other’s reactions.
