Catabolism is a process of metabolism in which complex molecules are broken down into simpler one with the release of energy. It is a destructive metabolism usually releases energy that is used to drive chemical reactions.
Catabolism involves all of the metabolic processes that tear down biomolecules, e.g. digestion, cellular respiration, etc.The catabolic process releases energy that works to help maintain proper muscle activity. The oxidation process that occurs during catabolism helps synthesize the necessary chemical building blocks like adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
