In many reactions occured in our body such as fatty acids synthesis require Cabon Dioxide for carboxylation.

The question is, where do those carbon dioxide come from? Do they come from respiration or product of other metabolism (like kreb's cycle) or both?

And if they come from both way, which way is the main source of Carbon Dioxide?

Thanks in advance.
