Glyconutrients

Glyconutritionals are natural sugars that are essential to our health, but are not available in our modern-day over processed diets.

What scientists have found is that these glyconutrients enable our bodies' cells to communicate, cohere, and work together to keep us healthy and balanced.

There have been two studies to date, using a glyconutritional product with children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Both of these studies revealed that the number and severity of symptoms of ADHD, such as hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention, as well as oppositional defiance disorder symptoms and conduct disorder symptoms decreased with the addition of these glyconutritional supplements to the children's diet.

Study

Effect of Glyconutritionals on the Severity of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Dr. Kathyrn D Dykman; Dr. Ray N McKinley
To study the effect of polysaccharide supplements upon the severity of symptoms in children with a diagnosis of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), 19 ADHD children were recruited from a parent support group and were assessed initially and 6 to 8 weeks later for inattention, hyperactivity-impulsivity, and health benefits. All subjects received glyconutritional supplements and phytonutritional supplements. At the time of the study, seven of the subjects were not on any medication; eight were on prescribed doses of methylphenidate, three had previously taken methylphenidate and had stopped, and one was on an anti-depressive medication. Glyconutritional supplements significantly decreased the number and severity of ADHD symptoms and improved health as rated by 32 indices. Age, gender, and drug/no drug conditions were not confounding influences. Present results suggest that symptoms of ADHD may be reduced by polysaccharides, which in the form of glycoconjugates play a crucial role in both cell communication and healthy functioning.
