Science has long ago proven that our bodies need proteins, fatty acids, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and enzymes for optimal health. Science has now proven that there are a number of biological sugars (monosaccharides) which are necessary for all cellular and immune functions, enabling the body to maintain health. These essential saccharides make up the "alphabetic code" that our cells use to communicate with each other.
There are approximately 200 monosaccharides found in nature. Eight of these are known to be essential components of cell-surface glycoforms used in cell-cell communication. Glycoproteins on the surface of every cell serve as signals to tell other cells who they are and what they need. If the cells do not have enough of the right essential saccharides, they cannot make the correct glycoproteins, and the cell-to-cell messages become disrupted. Subsequently, the immune system cannot effectively wage an offensive against intruders or imbalances.
Importance of Essential Saccharides:
Without adequate amounts of these essential saccharides the human body cannot function properly. In a perfect world our bodies would easily take glucose and convert it into all the other essential saccharides by glycosylation. Unfortunately, it is often very difficult for the body to synthesize adequate amounts of the missing saccharides. It takes an enormous amount of energy, up to 37 enzymatic steps, to synthesize these monosaccharides and things like stress, poor nutrition, toxins, or lack of sleep inhibit the process. Effectively supplementing with essential saccharides takes the burden off of our over-stressed bodies and supports cellular-communication networks resulting in overall better function.
GlycoLife Sciences: The Essential Saccharide Source
At GlycoLife Sciences we have identified natural sources of essential saccharides and have worked with a number of product developers and manufactures to attain potent extracts of these monosaccharides in their natural state. These essential sacchrides as found in their naturally occurring polysaccharide structures are adaptogenic and immunomodulatory with incredible potential. By utilizing cutting-edge technology these polysaccharide super-sugar chains are able to be isolated for maximum effectiveness, cutting out undesirable and toxic elements. With these powerful extracts at the core of our products we offer incredibly powerful, yet safe solutions for restoring function in the body and bringing relief from a number of undesirable conditions.
