What Exactly Are Glyconutrients?

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

You may have heard me say that the word “Glyco” is a Greek word and it simply means “sweet” or “sugar.” So Glyconutrients are natural sugars or sugar molecules found in various plant sources. The prefix ‘glyco’ can be placed in front of a fat, protein or any molecule and suggest that a sugar in attached.

Glycobiology, which is the study of the structure, function and biology of carbohydrates (sugars), are called Glycans in the scientific world. Glycans are present in every living organism and Glycobiology is a rapidly growing field in biology, with relevance to biomedicine, biotechnology as well as basic research, which studies the sugar portion of the fats and proteins.


A Glycoprotein is a sugar attached to a protein.

A Glycolipid is a sugar attached to a fat.

A Glycoform is any sugar form.

Glyconutrients are not vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, herbs, enzymes, oils or any kind of homeopathic drugs. Once again, they are carbohydrates (natural sugars) and don’t stimulate an insulin response. So if you have any kind of sugar issues, you don’t have to worry.

And just as there are essential proteins called amino acids and essential fats called fatty acids, glyconutrients are the newly discovered class of carbohydrate nutrients that are needed to maintain healthy cells in our body.

The efficacy of glyconutrients has been established by many of the world’s leading scientists and researchers and the key to enhancing and maintaining cellular communication and proper cell function in the body. Many medical professionals and research scientists believe this breakthrough in Glycoscience will lead to glyconutrients becoming a household word within the upcoming years.

Scientists are networking over the emergence of this technology. Books and articles have been published and continue to be published on this life-enhancing technology every day!

It hasn’t always been this way. When this science first came out….it was laughed at….poo-ppo’d and was blown off. How can sugars help the body health and repair itself?

Not any more….

It’s real exciting now to see all the research supporting value of glyconutrients and how supplementing them in our diet, can play a major role in supporting our bodies through enhancing the function of our cells and helping them to communicate with each other.

So remember, glyconutrients are special sugars that come from plants and provide targeted nourishment for your cells.

And they help nourish and feed your cells, plus a whole lot more.

Glyconutrients also help:

• Support your immune system function to benefit your health.

• Support digestive functions to help make sure your gut is working properly.

• Improve cognitive functions to aid your intellect.

• Improve memory, concentration and attentiveness to maintain sharpness.

• Improve mood and decrease irritability to support a happier life.

Harness Your Body’s Potential

The cells in your body know when they need nourishment, protection, repair or even destruction. They do this by communicating with other cells to determine the best way to promote good health within your body.

Glyconutrients help support and optimize cellular communication so your body can do the amazing things it was created to do.

The scientists that are the innovators of this incredible technology have proven that Glyconutirients are revolutionizing nutrition, immune health, anti-aging, skincare, weight loss and more.

There are trillions of cells in your body that talk to each other, but eating poorly can make it harder for them to communicate. That’s why it’s important to include glyconutrient supplements in your diet.

In fact, studies have shown that glyconutrients are often lacking in typical modern diet, so it’s important to get them from other sources, like supplements.

With more than 25 years of quality science in glyconutrition, it should be a priority to take products supported by science that help your body do amazing things.

Some people say they don’t need supplements…..they say, I just eat healthy.

Well, these days, it’s almost impossible to eat ‘healthy’ because our food is so depleted of what the body needs to maintain optimal health.

Because of the lack of proper nutrients in our diet, it is imperative to take supplements to fill in the gaps.

As mentioned earlier, glyconutrients help improve the immune system, digestive and cognitive functions, as well as memory and concentration. With all the benefits that glyconutrients provide, it’s important to make them a part of your regular diet.

The sooner you start, the better you’ll feel!
