Missing Link to the Immune System
For decades science has been looking for the answers to our health problems in proteins and fats. Carbohydrates have long been overlooked - thought just to be energy or calories and play no other significant role.
But recent science has found eight super carbohydrates that are essential for the production and proper function of glycoproteins. Glycoproteins or GPs are the communication mechanism the cells use for everything from cell differentiation in embryonic development to distinguishing healthy cells from pathogenic invaders, to constructing immune factors and calling them to a needed area. This new science is just coming out in physiology and biochemistry books now, like Harper's Biochemistry 1996 edition. If these eight essential saccharides are not available in adequate amounts, these and many other systems in the body may be impaired. Since only one or two of these super carbohydrates are obtained in our modern diets, supplementing the diet with all the essential saccharides is the best way to insure optimal health and immunity.
This new field of glyconutrition is attracting the attention of the medical and scientific communities as the greatest breakthrough in the understanding how to activate the immune system as well as many other processes. It has become the new buzz in the scientific community and is sending shock waves throughout the medical industry. Continuing Education Courses are being taught on the subject and there are medical conventions held totally on this subject.
One of the recently discovered functions of GPs is in the development of babies during pregnancy. GPs are what allow the body to know when to stop making one type of tissue, like liver, and begin making bone or kidney. Some believe this may be an answer to preventing many birth defects. There also have been studies showing the body's inability to respond effectively to viruses, bacteria, and even genetic impairment as a result of a deficiency of the essential saccharides. Numerous medical studies on a variety of health problems have been and continue to be published.
This is the most exciting discovery ever regarding the immune system. The scientists and doctors who originally developed and standardized the active ingredient in aloe vera (one essential saccharide called mannose), have now through scientific advancements found natural sources of the other 8 known essential (mono)saccharides. This glyconutrient complex provides not just one, but all the essential components making the 8 or more major components and minor critical components that when deficient may prevent proper function of GPs, cells and genes. Mannose from the gel in aloe vera's inner leaf is only one component. Other components include: Arabinogalactan (Larix decidua), gum ghatti, & gum tragacanth.
Now that it is known that there are at least 8 or more essential saccharides and 75 critical components; the standerdized glyconutrient complex makes other aloe products obsolete. Who would ever want to buy and use any aloe product or other plant with only one of the saccharides in adequate levels when you can have them all? Now scientists have found proprietary methods to optimally blend and deliver the components of GPs in high enough concentrations in a way that they can be utilized in the body. And still maintain the natural live food form.
New radioactive tracking studies show that individual saccharides are digested directly, absorbed and formed into GPs.A whole new level has been reached with this product. One & only one company has a proprietary blend with all the needed precursors. They have the complete vehicle containing all the essential parts, not just one part like other products. Not just a wheel or motor but it is the complete vehicle. It is the cell communication system.
The same patent holding doctors & scientific team, that in early stages developed and patented the saccharides from aloe, are now furthering their research by developing the ultimate glyconutrient blend. Dr. McAnalley brought his scientific team works with him to this end. They not only have the ability to do what was done before, but they are developing far beyond the limits of Aloe alone. Originally, all they knew about or had was the one component from Aloe. Now they have gone on to discover a proprietary way to provide all the necessary components into a powerful food. The patent is actually for all known essential saccharides. So as more are discovered and proven to be essential they will be added into the patent protection belonging to Dr. McAnalley's team. Special patents called "Composition of Matter" patents have also been applied for on the technology so even if someone else was able to design a way to make them bio-available the special "Composition of Matter" (COM) patents prevent it. Only in cases of an exceptionally important and unique discovery are these COM patents granted. Due to work by this scientific team, they now have combined all that is in aloe along with the new discoveries into the glyconutrient complex. The scientific team found proprietary sources to obtain these substances and they are not disclosing the sources to prevent copying. But they are all plant sources. Obviously this blend of the saccharides is more effective than any one saccharide would be if taken individually. You want them all in your diet because if you are deficient in any one, your system may not be able to perform many essential tasks.
Since most of these super carbohydrates are missing in our diet, the body may try to synthesize them if possible. This is very difficult requiring, in some cases, hundreds of enzyme reactions. This obviously is not occurring as it should in most of us, if in anyone, due to deficiencies of enzymes and nutrients, or toxins, in our food and environment. It is evident proper GP production is not occurring. GPs are the letters that cells spell with to communicate. When the body is deficient in the saccharides cells can not produce GPs or communicate with other cells or the immune system. Not only are the cells not communicating and receiving immune help as they should but the pathogens, the bad guys, also are deficient in these saccharides and therefore are not communicating their identity. This causes them to be invisible to the immune system. One of our major problems has been that our immune factors have just not been able to identify the pathogens; so it has been impossible to eliminate them. Once these glyconutrients are added into the diet the viruses, bacteria, or yeasts start communicating and our immune factors can detect them. So not only are the good cells now able to call for help; and the immune factors now functioning optimally; but greatest of all, the pathogens are no longer able to survive by being unidentified.
Therefore as expected, now that the lights are turned on for these hidden pathogens, the immune system goes into high gear destroying them and discharging them from the system. This may be observed by mucous discharges from lungs or sinuses or by skin rashes and acceleration of other elimination systems. This is exciting to see our bodies finally able to rid themselves of these toxins that would otherwise continue to build up in the body diminishing good health and longevity. And no more auto-immune aggression to good cells that previously could not say, I'm OK; I'm you, don't destroy me.
Glucose, or regular sugar, is already excessive in our food, so the glyconutrient blend does not need to contain extra glucose that may be a problem for diabetics or those on calorie restrictive diets. There are trace amounts of Glucose naturally in the sources which the other monosaccharides are derived. The other saccharides, (which in chemistry are referred to as sugars), are in a cell food state and do not stimulate insulin production, or need insulin to digest them. They are not a problem for diabetics like sugars that reduce to glucose & fructose. Since they are basically in a digested cell food state already they can be used directly by the cell and are not like sugar as we think of it.
Foods are digested down to saccharides for use by cells. The particular plant source they originated from is irrelevant and won't cause allergy reactions. The monosaccharides are from all non-animal sources. Regardless of what some may say who have not yet learned this science or who do not know how the product is made, it really does work. The science is available in peer reviewed journal articles, unlike other products which may only have clinical trials.
Don't you think any Dr. who does not know of the science of Glycobiology that has won the Nobel Prize in Medicine 5 out of the last 8 years is unreliable? This netraceutical won the American Naturapathic Medical Association's biochemical breakthrough of the year award also in 1996.
With the amazing scientific developments of Dr.'s McAnalley, Dr. McDaniel and the rest of the scientific teams, they are continually advancing products for optimal health, immunity and leading the glyconutrient field.

Try a Slow-Carb Habit
Carbohydrates - found in grains, breads, pasta, and sugar, as well as vegetables, fruit, tofu, beans, and dairy - provide the body with the most efficient fuel for energy production and brain activity. They're nutritionally essential, a principle currently downplayed by the "low-carb craze".
I start from the premise that eating instinctively means eating healthily. I strongly believe that the body can transmit to the brain accurate information about its nutritional necessities: a moderate amount of food, and only foods that are beneficial for health.
