Glyconutrient Sugars - Why do you need all 8:
Glyconutrients are eight nutritional plant based monosaccharide sugars that are the first building blocks for carbohydrates and glycoproteins in our bodies.
These eight monosaccharides sugars that are referred to as glyconutrients are meant to be in our regular daily diet, but there is a general belief that there is a shortage of them in the food that we eat today due to modern farming, agricultural practices and food processing practices.
These 8 monosaccharide glyconutrients are namely; 1. Fucose, 2. Xylose, 3. Mannose, 4. Galactose, 5. N-Acetylneuraminic Acid, 6. N-Acetylgalactosamine, 7. glucosamine and 8. Glucose.
Glyconutrients Form Glycoproteins:
When glyconutrients are consumed, they combine with proteins within the cells in our body to form cell surface structures called glycoproteins. Glycoproteins are the key to proper and effective inter-cellular and intra-cellular communication and adequate total body function.By providing the raw materials the body requires for the production of glycoproteins, glyconutrients strengthens the body's immunity. Glyconutrients uniqueness is directly related to their ability to modulate the immune system.
Many believe that glyconutrients or Glyconutritionals are the greatest breakthrough in modern science for health and wellness. Glyconutrients are known to activate T-cells to recognize and destroy invasive and abnormal cells within our bodies.
Glyconutrition stimulates the immune system to produce macrophage and immune killer cells which attack malignancies. They are also believed to support the body in stem cell production, new tissue formation and organ regeneration. By getting the 8 Essential Sugars, you are improving the quality of your cell membranes, which causes you to directly enhance your overall health.
Why are these 8 essential sugars so important?
Well, just how does a cell in the liver, or lung or any other tissue tell the immune system what it needs? How does it communicate, “repair me”, “detoxify me”, or in the case of cancer, “for the good of the whole destroy me because I’m damaged or infected.” What mechanisms allow those messages to get to the right places? The answer is cell to cell communication and deficiencies in the 8 essentials sugars keep cells from being able to communicate efficiently.
There are eight carbohydrate compounds that are considered to comprise the essential sugars group. Generally speaking these sugars are found in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. However, the woeful state of our diets and the foods we eat is no secret. Fruits and vegetables begin to lose nutrients from the moment they are picked. Most of the “fresh” fruits and vegetables we buy have actually been picked, then stored, then shipped, and then stored again. When we consider how heat, light, water, blanching, freezing and sterilization further deplete their nutrients, it is estimated that an appalling twenty-six essential nutrients are removed from our foods. Further storage on the consumer’s part continues to lesson any existing nutritional value in the food.
There are two sugars that are commonly found in our modern day diets; Glucose you get from table sugar, and Galactose you get from milk products. The remaining six need to be supplemented. That is the reason you NEED BODY BALANCE!
