Glyconutrients: How Much to Take
Before we address the obvious question about how to take glyconutrients, let’s first discuss briefly what they are.
Glyconutrients, are 100% vegetarian based derived entirely from plants & seaweeds. They combine aloe based saccharides with fucose-rich Undaria pinnatifida. They are Gluten Free; and usually contain arabinogalactan. Arabinogalactan has shown some immune-enhancing activity in the laboratory, particularly with regard to the stimulation of human natural killer cell cytotoxicity.
Glyconutrient products are specifically designed to enhance cellular communication. True wellness begins at the cellular level. Think about it? If your body is made up of millions and billions of cells that need to talk to each other, wouldn’t it do its job better if the communication was better? Glyconutrients have amazing research behind them.
Glyconutrients are typically, sold in a bulk powder, capsule, or liquid medium. I have chosen to only discuss the dosages for bulk powder and capsules, because I believe that liquid supplementations are subject to oxygen and free radical contamination and should NOT be consumed.
Bulk Powder Recommended Use:
One scoop (1/2 teaspon) twice daily mixed with your favorite juice, tea, or water. In trials, the glyconutrient powder has been proven to be safe, & non-toxic, with no known side effects (up to at least 60 scoops per day).
Capsule Recommended Use:
Two capsules twice daily on an empty or full stomach taken with a full glass of water. In trials, Glyconutrient capsules have been proven to be safe, & non-toxic, with no known side effects. (up to 20 capsules per day).
There is an excellent book on the market entitled ‘In Search of Manna’. You can buy it at www.amazon.com. It contains doctor recommendations for ’emergency’ dosages of glyconutrients based on specific auto immune disorders. The recommendations based above are for maintenace dosages or healthy people that want to maintain good health.
