Rebuilding Health with Glyconutrients

Dr. DeeAnn Saber

Many people now realize that health doesn’t just spontaneously appear; it is the end result of a process starting at the cellular level, cascading through tissues and organs and recognized at a clinical setting. It is fundamental that the process begins with healthy cells and molecules, the basic building blocks of tissues and organs. Thus, health is a basically a cellular-level event, and for optimal health there must be optimal structure in each cell.

Most proteins in the body are glycoproteins, meaning they have sugar molecules attached, which are an integral part of their structure and impact greatly our cellular function. So adding a glyconutritional supplement to the diet can have a significant outcome on cellular function. A recently published clinical study ( states conclusively that the intake of glyconutritionals can positively influence the body at a basic level.
