Seeking The Truth About Glyconutrients & Glyconutrition.
As awareness around glyconutrients grows, so does the hype and myth surrounding them. Glyconutrients, a blend of plant polysaccharides believed to represent a new category of untapped vital nutrients for optimal health, have only been on the market for about the last 10 years and, depending on who you speak
to, reports range from good to bad on the effectivity of glyconutrients. (Doctors that graduated after 2002 should be aware of glycontechnology). Nutritionists adopt a wait-and-see attitude; some big traditional pharmaceutical corporations, dreading this competition, spread fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) about glyconutrients; while, on the other side of the spectrum, some glyconutrient companies with over-zealous sales agents damage the glyconutrition industry's reputation by touting expensive glyconutrients as a universal panacea (cure-all) for every dis-ease under the sun.
So, in the absence of conclusive, double-blind, peer-reviewed clinical research on glyconutrients, you can be forgiven for being somewhat confused or wary about them.
What is now known is that several diseases are caused by the absence of certain essential sugars (glyconutrients), therefore you should treat these diseases with glyconutrient supplementation.
Research shows that phytonutrients, and the newly identified glyconutrients, can significantly reduce those damaging free radicals, thereby helping end the disease causing process. That is why eating daily 5-13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables and eating good whole grains -without chemical additives - is the one most important thing you can do to protect, or regain your health.
MIT (Massachussets Institute of Technology) has called glycobiology* "One of the ten emerging technologies that will change the world."
You probably at least suspected that our Immune Systems are being compromised by our Western Lifestyles:
It is an established fact the immune systems of people that follow a Western lifestyle, like Americans and Europeans, have deteriorated by some 20 to 25% over the last 20 years and continues to deteriorate at an alarming rate of 3 to 5% each year. The factors contributing to compromised immune systems include: toxins, stress, drugs and deficiencies in our food supply due to green farming and other factors. Many in the medical community now regard this food deficiancy as the primary reason for the huge increase in associated auto-immune diseases. It is these auto-immune sicknesses that benefit and respond best to glyconutrients, but several other medical conditions respond well to glyconutrients, too.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." Inventor Thomas Edison
(NOTE: Glyconutrients are NOT medicines - they are pure foodstuffs).
We hope you find a way to cure whatever you or your loved ones need cured.
