Glycoproteins & Glyconutrients
Cells have a complex and specified “glycoproteins”, “glycolipids” which can recognize and “discriminate” between harmful and beneficial substances. This is part of what gives a modern cell wall the special ability to act as a living filter for the interior of the cell. But a protenoid microsphere would just be like a little “soap-bubble” like entity without any “fundamental” properties needed to discriminate between inviting beneficial molecules into the cell, and excluding harmful substances from the cell.Glyconutrients are cellular identifiers. What they do is form a bank of terminals on a cell. These terminals are what everything else uses to attach to the cell. Everything else includes other cells, hormones, molecules as well as toxins, viruses and bacterium.
The Glyconutrients are bound to a protein sting making them Glycoproteins, which is their final stage of development within the body. They fill a structural role within the body in the form of Collagen, a transport role in Transferrin, Immunologic role in the form of immunoglobulin, cell to cell communication with selectins, proteins in fertilization, cell adhesion molecules, cell signaling by becoming receptors, clotting by becoming plasma proteins and lipoproteins, and lubrication in the body by becoming Mucins.
Glyconutrients that form Glycoproteins, provide essential functions within the body. Without these eight carbohydrates or a sufficient amount of them within the body, there is nothing for the protein strands to bind to and so there is a lack throughout the entire body. The body is now forced to decide where these proteins are best used for survival alone. This can lead to a loss of healthy vital function within the body.
The Eight Essential Glyconutrients:
1. Mannose is the chief of the essential super critical nutrient sugars. It helps strengthen the excretion system and helps to defend against bacterial infection
2. Galactose As with all 8 super critical nutrient sugars it is vital for intercellular communications. It promotes wound healing, decreased inflammation, and stimulates needed calcium absorption
3. Fucose is found in healthy mother’s milk and transfers immunity to newborns. It is important for proper nerve function, kidney health, reproduction systems and hydration of your skin
4. Glucose enhances memory, stimulates calcium absorption and increases cellular communication.
5. Xylose is an antibacterial and antifungal. It promotes the growth of healthful flora in your intestines, therefore maximizing nutrient absorption which in turn strengthens your immune system
6. N-acetylneuramic acid (sialic acid) is vital to many body fluids including, serum, cerebrospinal, saliva, amniotic, and mother’s milk. It is an immune modulator that benefits many things and it is a powerful antiviral. It is 1000 times more potent than antiviral drugs used to fight influenza
7. N-acetylgalactosamine helps in the prevention of many diseases. Evidence reveals it helps in tumor reduction and in promoting healthful heart cells. It is also key in promoting joint health and is also an anti-inflammatory.
8. N-acetylglucosamine found in the brain, thyroid, liver, small intestine, testes, epithelial cells of the endocrine and sebaceous glands, and endothelial cells of blood vessels. It is presumed that it plays a crucial role in all these tissues and organs.
About Polysaccharides… On The Cutting Edge of Nutritional Science
The majority of the molecules in our cells are glycoforms of some type. If glycoforms are not manufactured correctly in our cells, due to decreased bodily function or a dietary deficiency, crucial cells and associated cellular components are not adequately created or optimized. The result is that health and performance are drastically reduced.
In order to enhance health and performance take polysaccharides. Polysaccharides will bind themselves to cell receptor sites located on the surface of cell membranes, enabling the immune system to activate and function at an optimal level.
Natural killer cells and macrophages are among the wide array of immune system cells that patrol the body seeking abnormalities and other difficulties. When a problem has been identified, a cellular defense team in the form of messenger molecules is summoned to initiate the proper immune response. This cellular defense system is enhanced when sufficient amounts of polysaccharides are taken.
Scientific Validation for Glyconutrients and Nutraceuticals
MIT named this science one of the ten emerging technologies that will change the world.Technology Review (MIT) Sugars could be biology’s next sweet spot.
The 1990s may well be remembered in biology as the decade of the gene, culminating in the completion of the Human Genome Project’s working draft. And the next big thing in medicine may be the study of the proteins coded for by all those genes. But even as doctors and drug companies struggle to interpret and exploit the recent explosion of data on genes and proteins, yet another field of biology is waiting to break out: glycomics. This emerging discipline seeks to do for sugars and carbohydrates what genomics and proteomics have done for genes and proteins—move them into the mainstream of biomedical research and drug discovery.
Science Magazine (March 2001) dedicated an entire issue to the implications of this cutting edge research on proper immune function and overall health.Click Here Scientific American MEDICINE: Changing Cancer Cells’ “Surface Sugars” can Inhibit Tumor Growth – Jan. 22, 2002 (July 2002) The key to halting cancer cells may lie in their sugary coats, scientists say. Carbohydrate molecules surround all cells and help them to identify and interact with one another. Now new research, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, indicates that altering some of the surface sugars associated with cancer cells can control tumor growth. The findings suggest that the sugars could one day serve as targets for new anti-cancer therapies.Click Here
Harpers Biochemistry (Volume 24) Since 1996 these sugars have been identified in Harpers Biochemistry (Volume 24) as glucose, flucose, manose, galactose, zylose, anacitelo-glosomine, anacitelogalactosomine, and anacitelneurominic acid. “Comprensive research has led to the discovery of eight monosaccharides needed by every cell in the human body because all eight are required in the engineering and design of life that is coded in our genes. These sugars are the worlds most powerful, essential carbohydrates and are necessary for proper cellular function and yet research has shown that only two, glucose and galactose are present in the modern diet.” This medical textbook (used in the U.S. Medical Universities) was rewritten in order to include a new chapter on glycobiology.
Newsweek (April 25, 1994) featured a story that talked about the power of the substances in glyconutrients (polysaccharides) to improve certain aspects of our nation’s failing health.
Acta Anatomica Glycosciences Issue 161/1-4/98 International Journal of Anatomy, Embryology and Cell Biology. Glycosylation is the most common form of protein and lipid modification but its biological significance has long been underestimated. The last decade, however, has witnessed the rapid emergence of the concept of the sugar code of biological information: indeed, monosaccharides represent an alphabet of biological information similar to amino acids and nucleic acids but with unsurpassed coding capacity.

The Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR), is used by 99% of all doctors and healthcare professionals before recommending solutions to their patients. Glyco-Nutrients are listed for compromised immune systems.
Glyconutrients Reference, Ms has been linked to the inability to absorb the glyconutrient xylose or the presence of abnormal glyconutrient galactose molecules. The myelin sheath that covers our nerves and is attacked by immune cells in MS contain galactose. Because of this, supplementation with glyconutrients, in particular galactose and xylose, may have a corrective effect for MS sufferers.
Researchers at the University of California, Irvine report that N-acetylglucosamine, (Glyco-Nurtients) a form of glucosamine (commonly used for arthritis), could be helpful in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 2.5 million men and women worldwide.
In their introduction to the article, Dr Michael Demetriou and colleagues remark that “Current treatments and emerging oral therapies for multiple sclerosis (MS) are limited by effectiveness, cost and/or toxicity.” In previous research, the team found that inherited and environmental risk factors converge to influence the manner in which specific sugars are added to proteins that regulate the disease.
The current study utilized a mouse model of MS-like autoimmune disease. Dr Demetriou’s team found that orally administered N-acetylglucosamine suppressed T-cell hyperactivity and autoimmune response when given after the onset of the disease via greater sugar modifications to T cell proteins. “This sugar-based supplement corrects a genetic defect that induces cells to attack the body in MS making metabolic therapy a rational approach that differs significantly from currently available treatments,” explained Dr Demetriou, who is an associate professor of neurology and microbiology & molecular genetics at UC Irvine.
Science Direct, Food Chemistry, Volume 103, Issue 1, 2007, Pages 22–3.After the research findings and following information on the physical need of polysaccharides for optimal health you will be introduced to a 21 Century whole food that provides all of the essential sugars bonded to peptides (protein/amino acid chain). This leading edge nanotechnology provides a comprehensive combination of essential amino acids and sugars needed to directly target the mitochondria (power plant) of the cell to create ATP (cellular energy). Without this essential combination of polysaccharides* and peptides the mitochondria cannot optimally produce ATP. Living Herbal farmacy has access (Manufacture) to the technology to connect these proteins to the sugar trains with 98% absorption in the cells.
