Glyconutrients are sugars that are good for you; they form part of the sugars that heal your body. Most people associate sugars with table sugar which consist of two saccharides, glucose and fructose; however, there are eight essential saccharides our body needs. They are mannose, glucose, galactose, xylose, fucose (not to be confused with fructose), N-acetylglucosamine, N-acetylgalactosamine, and N-acetylneuraminic acid. Two of the essential sugars are found commonly in our diet. Glucose is found in plants and table sugar, and galactose, found in milk products and certain pectins. Fructose is found in fruit and table sugar, it is not essential to your diet.
Glycoforms are molecules that cover the surface of the cell and consist of either fat or protein binding with the eight saccharides. Glycoproteins are made of sugar and protein and glycolipids are made of fat and sugar. These molecules can be burned as energy but they won’t make you fat or raise your insulin levels. Studies have shown they can even help you lose weight. They are safe for diabetics and are fine on a low-carb diet.
Glyconutrients help the immune system by reactivating it to shrink cancerous tumours and can slow the progression of cancer; they can also mitigate the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Glucosamine is a metabolic product of N-acetylglucosamine (an essential saccharide) that has proven to be beneficial with osteoarthritis by repairing cartilage damage and relieving pain and inflammation. Glyconutrients help the nervous system with memory, sleep, anxiety and depression. They help with cholesterol and fats lowering LDL (bad fats) and raising HDL (good fats), as well as helping with bone density and muscle mass.
The eight essential saccharides can be found in:

When thinking about eating the right food you often forget that what you store your food in is just as important. Plastics leach phthalates into your food and these days’ plastics are wrapped around your food and soft plastics are used to store nearly all of our food.
