1.1.1 Carbohydrate functions as an energy source of the body and acts as Bio fuel
1.1.1.1 Glucuse, that is a main feature of carbohydrate, is transported from one cell to another by blood in case of animals and cell sap in case of plants, to produce energy.
2 Lipids

2.1.1 They serve as a source of fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K)
2.1.1.1
2.1.2 Lipids are important as cellular metabolic regulators
2.1.2.1
3 Proteins
3.1 Protein is a nutrient your body needs to grow, as well as to support and maintain your life.
3.1.1 help cells develop and communicate, act as enzymes and hormones, conduct the transport of nutrients throughout your bloodstream and repair damaged tissue.
3.1.1.1
4 Nucleic acids
4.1 Nucleic acids consist of three different types of molecules joined together:
4.1.1 A Sugar Molecule
4.1.2 Nitrogen Molecule
4.1.3 Phosphate molecule
4.1.3.1 The main role of nucleic acids is store the genetic information that cells in the body need to function.
