What are Glyconutrients? Glyconutrients are eight newly discovered biologically-active sugars that are responsible for making up the structure of every body cell. First discovered in Aloe Vera, Glyconutrients are essential to good health. It is because of these glyconutrients that cells are able to communicate with one another.

The 8 glyconutrients are:

  • Mannose
  • Galactose
  • Glucose
  • Fucose
  • Sylose
  • N-acetylglucosamine
  • N-acetylgalactosamine
  • N-acetylneuraminic acid
  • A deficiency in glyconutrients can lead to a weakend immune system, causing ill health. Because nutrition and disease correlate with one another, scientists have found that glyconutrients are vital components to health and overall wellbeing.

    While we are exposed to air, food and water toxins, our foods are also being stripped of these crucial nutrients; therefore, glyconutrients play a substantial role in helping to prevent many disease conditions by boosting our immune systems and cognitive ability as well.

    Based on research, it is necessary that glyconutrients are added to ones' diet.
