Do you know there are bad and good sugars?

Bad sugar is the sugar we eat when consuming candies, cookies, cakes a processed food high in corn syrup. Sugar contains a lot of calories, with no essential nutrients. It can have harmful effects on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases. A high level of sugar has effects on your liver, pancreas, heart and brain. “Heart attack ” the number one cause of death for many decades was believed to be mostly caused by saturated fat, however evidence and new studies show that sugar is the leading component. This empty nutrient sugar provides only energy, addiction and weight gain. Natural sugars from fruits are recognized and metabolized by the body. Everything in moderation is the recipe for good health and wellness.

Good sugars are required by our bodies to be healthy at a cellular level. Our cells need eight essential sugars for proper communication. These sugars although we might not know them they are innate to our cells for proper structure and function. Galactose and glucose are consumed on a daily basis, perhaps even too much. N-Acetyl glucosamine, galactosamine and neuraminic acid, mannose, xylose and fucose are vital for the cells to surface and to perform their specific functions.

Are you incorporating these essential sugars into your diet? What is the importance of these sugars at your cellular level?

In the 1980’s Dr. Bill McAnalley, a PhD pharmacologist, discover the importance of a “sugar’ called mannose which contributed to a paradigm shift in nutrition. This sugar or carbohydrate had unique properties to provide cells the ability to communicate at it’s the most optimal level. Mannose is a sugar (saccharide) found in the aloe vera plant. Since 2200 B.C. aloe was considered a divine plant in Nippur (Mesopotamia) used for intestinal health. Today we all know aloe vera is an amazing medicinal plant. Through years of research and technology “glyconutrients” became the world’s first dietary supplements which blends are completely plant sourced. A new science emerged “Glycobiology”. In the 1990’s The Journal of Glycobiology launched by Oxford University stated that:

Glycobiology is the study of the structure, biosynthesis and biology of saccharides that are widely distributed in nature. In 2003 MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) voted the glycoscience as the top 10 emerging technologies that will change the world.

We need these Good sugars

There are about 200 natural sugars that our body recognizes but only eight are essential for the health of our cells. Four of these eight sugars are responsible to determine the differences between blood type groups. We call them sugars but they can also be named, glycans, glycoforms, carbohydrates. These sugars are like branches of a dense forest covering the surface of the cell which function is to protect the cell from intruders like fungus, bacteria, viruses, yeast, free radicals and other factors attacking our bodies on a daily basis.

These Good sugars are responsible to support your immune system. It provides the necessary tools to heal, repair and restore. We know our cells need these sugars, the liver is responsible to produce them in an emergency situation. They are also found in breast milk, crucial for every living individual on earth. Our body is a perfect biological system that runs on electric impulses. These impulses are sent out from the brain to the nervous system and direct the cells what to do. Cell adhesion makes up your organs, your bloodstream, your glands, your systems, they are the building blocks of your body.

Cells are also responsible for many functions like taking nutrition and eliminating toxins or waste. When you are strong at a cellular level, your immune system works at its most optimal way. These glyconutrients or sugars provide the raw materials necessary for your cells to operate with their innate intelligence. They are the code of life. They are the alphabet of communication. The absence of glyconutrients on the cells’ surface has great ramifications in their structure and function. Resulting in a breakdown in a cell to cell communication and immune system response.

Our body builds 150-500 billion cells every day so we must incorporate glyconutrients supplement in our diet. Glyconutrients, provides the network connection for other nutrients like vitamins and minerals, amino acids, fatty acids to work synergistically.

In 2012 the NAS (National Academy of Science) published a report about the importance of glycans or sugars. “Glycans play roles in almost every biological process and are involved in every major disease.” Glyconutrients are the one and only plant-sourced, patented technology that has these eight sugars available in one powder compound. It uses a dry freeze, stabilized technology that is easy to consume. When ingested your body recognizes it as real and pure food. These sugars are the missing link in nutrition.
