Has anyone researched these?
Is anyone taking them? There are some in my new supplement.
Apparently there are eight essential biologically active sugars that our bodies need for cell communication.
They supposedly prevent and heal disease.
We can only get two of them in our diet, but there are five of them in breastmilk. I don't think that's a coincidence.
I've downloaded lots of info from the internet - now I just have to read it, but personal experience is really what I'm after.

No not I, but I'll have a surf later when I have some time.
You might have to be the guinea pig :)

This is the best information I've come up with so far http://www.simplemedicine.org/ButtonPages/MACRONUTRIENTS.htm
There's a lot of other information, but some companies are trying to keep their formulae secret for their patent so I'll just list the eight essential sugars which are also called monosaccharides:
glucose (mmm - I wonder if it's a sugar producers ploy?)
mannose (from aloe vera)
galactose, xylose, fucose,
N-acetylglucosamine, N-acetylglactosamine and
N-acetylneuroaminic acid (Sialic acid)
The main reason I'm looking into it all is because a friend of mine wants to start selling supplements in January and passed on an informational audio tape with some amazing healing stories on it and THEN I discovered that my new supplement contains them!

cell to cell communication?
That sounds a lot like Mannatech advertising to me!

I am inclined to agree.
How independent is Harper's Biochemistry?
From information on the last site that I posted I've decided to start taking kelp, shiitake mushrooms and shark cartilage capsules.
The lady in the health food shop swears by one kelp mixture with astragalus and garlic from personal experience and I've bought some of that.

I was just browsing and realised this thread was left hanging.:rolleyes:
If anyone comes across it and wonders what happened...
I tried taking the health food shop versions of kelp and shark cartilage, etc and didn't really notice any change.:(
Then I bought the super-expensive supplements and was promptly signed up to sell them and I was so angry that I no longer speak to this friend, who was brainwashed by her Mannatech consultant, and I didn't notice any benefit from the supplements!:eek:
These days I don't even visit the naturopath so I don't take the supplement that had the glyconutrients in them any more. :rolleyes:

Well I have read your info on Glyconutrients and can tell you first hand that they have been a life saver for me. I suffer from many disorders, the main ones are Arthritis and Chronic Fatigue. My specialist told me to go home and live with it because there is NO CURE. Just pain killers, anti inflamatories and bad, "BAD" drugs. I have been using all the recommended supplements and have never looked back. They truely are a God send for me.
Thus the Manna.

I was told the shark cartlidge would help with my arthritis, but they lace it with Surphur, thus the name GlycasamineSulphate.
I am also a "greenie" and could not justify the killing of a living creature for my benefit.
The creators of this product hand you a supposed health benefit with one hand then poison it with the other.
Check your lables my sweet friends and don't let them toxify your body.

Just a note to Annelies.
(26/11/05 Written a while ago but may catch up now)
Don't be angry at your friend any more. She truly believed she was doing you a great favour, the thing she introduced you to, really is a gift with great benefits. The gift of health is no small thing.
Forgiving is also a beginning and a healing.
Be happy for a caring friend.
Cheers Mrs T
