I recently read a lengthy article on Glyconutrients. The author of the article (who shall remain nameless), incorrectly and falsely made statements about glyconutrients and cures. If you or a loved one are suffering from an auto-immune disorder, please read this article before randomly buying a product off the internet.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a huge proponent of glyconutrients. However, people need to be informed and educated before they start buying nutritional products.
The reality is that glyconutrients are GREAT; and they seriously help people that have compromised immune systems. Glyconutrients have the ability to feed our body at the cellular level. The end result of this is that your body acts and responds more efficiently. This means your body will naturally fight off and address current illnesses and ailments BETTER than if you did not take glyconutrients.
At this point in the research with glyconutrients, it is INCORRECT to make statements that glyconutrients heal. However, the research is far enough along that people who are battling auto immune disorders should SERIOUSLY consider taking glyconutrients.
My other beef with glyconutrient advertising is that it is NOT a silver bullet. There are many good things everybody should be doing for their bodies on a daily basis. These things are even more important when you are fighting a major autoimmune disorder.
For example, everybody should be doing the following:
Taking a good multivitamin
Drinking eight classes of water a day, preferably distilled.
Taking Co-enzyme Q10 and Alpha Lipoic Acid
Taking a high quality Vitamin C
Think about this. When your body is under stress; and it is failing to fight off a disease properly, wouldn’t you want to give your body all the raw materials it needs to assist in the healing process? Glyconutrients are one MAJOR step in this process; but they are not the entire process.
There are two very good websites on the internet that discuss and sell multi-vitamins and glyconutrients.
