use the term "glyconutrient" to make
reference to eight specific sugars (saccharides).
claim that these sugars will form important compounds called
glycoproteins in your body. (Consider glycoproteins like

Glyconutritional supplements will give your body the
essential sugars it needs to make
Glycoproteins will help you in preventing and treating many
degenerative diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis,

fundamental question: Can glycoprotein and glyconutritional
supplementation really help in the prevention and the
treatment of chronic degenerative diseases?
No human study is
available to support these claims.
It's very difficult to
assess the potential benefits and risks of glyconutritional
Although a few laboratory
studies suggest possible health benefits from glyconutrient
supplementation, we need human studies to support these
claims and there is none.
At this time,it would not
be honest to recommend to our visitors and patients the use
of glyconutrient to enhance their immune system and treat
multiple diseases like
autism,diabetes,fibromyalgia,lupus,cancer arthritis and

studies have shown that mannosylated bovine serum albumin
(mBSA) enhances the respiratory burst (RB), phagocytosis,
and killing of Candida albicans and Escherichia coli by
resident murine peritoneal macrophages
Upregulation of the above
Mphi functions was associated with the binding of mBSA to
the macrophage mannose receptor. The present study was done
to determine if certain glyconutrients could stimulate Mphi
functions in a similar manner. Resident peritoneal murine
Mphi collected from C57BL/6 mice were exposed to the
glyconutrients for 10 and 60 min.
The RB was measured using
chemiluminescence. Both phagocytosis and killing were
measured after incubation with each of the following
microorganisms: Candida albicans, Escherichia coli and
The percent phagocytosis
and killing were determined using fluorescence microscopy.
Results indicated that certain glyconutrients, caused a dose
and time dependent effect on Mphi-induced killing of all
