Glycell has an exceptional phyto-glyconutrient product uniquely combining the 8 essential monosaccharides with the correct enzymes and antioxidants acting synergistically, facilitating rapid absorption. The uniqueness of Glycell becomes apparent since it does not only have all 8 essential sugars but also contains the right enzymes, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins supporting a complete, balanced and healthy lifestyle.
How does Glycell differ from other Glyco-nutritional supplements?
The importance of Glyconutrients has now been explained. However, it is important to note that any nutritional supplement is only efficient if it is absorbed properly in the digestive system. The researches at Glycell have established the importance and relevance of this and the importance to have the correct combination of enzymes to act as catalyst to facilitate proper absorption of these vitally important nutrients. As an added benefit this supplement has been enhanced with the necessary antioxidants fighting free radical activity. This combination of special enzymes, antioxidants and monosaccharides makes Glycell a very powerful proprietary nutritional supplement.

Aloe vera is extracted from the aloe plant and has been credited with the ability to serve a medicinal purpose. Aloe is a succulent that can be grown indoors or outdoors. Aloe vera is used in many forms for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe vera has been used for centuries as a home remedy. Aloe vera is a cactus like succulent that has wide application in skin and tissue healing. It is also used internally for gastric and esophageal problems and as a laxative. The central pulp of the plant is an important source of mannose, one of the important saccharides described below. Its active constituent is in fact a polymannose.
Researchers from Okinawa, Japan reported in the Japanese Journal of Cancer Research, that Aloe contained at least three anti-tumour agents, emodin, mannose, and lectin. The researchers concluded that Aloe controls pulmonary carcinogenesis and is effective in the treatment of leukaemia and sarcoma and that it would prevent the development of tumours.
The Aloe Vera plant is 99 percent water, leaving only 1 percent absorbable solid including over 200 bioactive constituents (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, fatty acids, polysaccharides, and polymannans). Glucomannan, a special complex polysaccharide composed largely of the sugar mannose, interacts with special cell-surface receptors on those cells which repair damaged tissues, called fibroblasts, stimulating them, activating their faster growth and replication.
One molecule of Aloe Immune is the delicate carbohydrate, Mannose, which is in high concentrations. Mannose acts to the immune system as a modulator, not just a stimulator. The modulation process controls and regulates the immune system to activate and fight off foreign invaders. This powerful molecule is on all cell surfaces, helping all other nutrients work even better. This product comes from the growth and development in the new field of research known as glycobiology or carbohydrate research. Glyconutrients strengthen the immune system. Mannose is a glyconutrient found in Aloe, which inhibits certain pro-inflammatory molecules causing asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and even lupus. In cellular studies it has been shown that mannose inhibits tumour growth and blocks communication between tumour cells. Mannose is the main saccharide of the eight essential saccharides (Glyconutrients). The Mannose has to be freezing dried almost immediately that it is taken from the plant, as it will deteriorate very quickly and be of very little use. Mannose can accelerate cellular communication and recovery from illness. As the biologic activities of Aloe Vera derived acemannan have been elucidated, it has been shown to have a remarkable ability to normalize all of these damaging processes and therefore contribute significantly to the enhancement of immune system function. At the intestinal level, acemannen acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent, neutralizing many of the enzymes responsible for damaging the mucosal wall; in effect, quenching the fire. This results in decreased leakiness of the intestinal wall and less absorption of allergic stimulating foreign protein. Acemannan has direct virucidal, bactericidal, and fungicidal properties, which can help control Candida overgrowth so that normal gastrointestinal bacterial flora can be restored. Acemannan also stimulates intestinal motility, helping to move allergenic proteins into the colon. All these processes help to normalize gastrointestinal wall structure and function and therefore stop the vicious macrophages, killer T-cells, and monocytes, as well as increasing the number of antibody forming B-cells in the spleen. Acemannan also protects the bone marrow from damage by toxic chemicals and drugs.
The main benefits that have been proven in medical studies are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and restoration. Other on going studies suggests that it is also beneficial to the heart and can destroy strong bacteria.
Calcium ascorbate is Vitamin C fully reacted to calcium, providing a buffered, non-acidic form of ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is essential for the maintenance of connective tissue, collagen and bone health. Vitamin C scavenges free radicals and recycles the body’s Vitamin E. Vitamin C also reduces lipid peroxidation after eating a fatty meal. Calcium Ascorbate is non-acidic (pH neutral), making it gentle on the digestive system. Vitamin C plays a vital role in the formation of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue), amino acid metabolism and hormone synthesis, and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a key factor in the body’s immune system.
Capsicum is a genus of plants from the nightshade family (Solanaceae). Some of the members of Capsicum are used as spices, vegetables and medicines. The fruit of Capsicum plants have a variety of names depending on the country or region. Some of the names are: Chilli, Peri-Peri, African Birds Eye Chilli, Pimento, Paprika and Bell Pepper to mention just a few.
The fruit of most species of Capsicum contains capsaicin (methyl vanillyl nonenamide). This is the chemical compound that causes the burning sensation in the mouth of most mammals, except birds, which are unaffected. The only pepper without capsaicin is the Bell Pepper.
The active ingredient is used mostly in modern western medicine in topical preparations as a circulatory stimulant and pain reliever.
Capsicum is used in internal herbal preparations as a stimulant and digestive aid. Please note that it is not considered an irritant, and promotes intestinal healing.
Ningxia Goji Berries
Wolfberry is the common name for the goji berry. Ningxia is a region of China, located on the northwest Loess highland, notable for its expansive mineral-rich desert, the Yellow River flows through a vast area of its land. Interesting interpretation about soil origins has arisen to explain the exceptional nutrient qualities of the Ningxia wolfberry.
Wolfberries have long played important roles in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) where they are believed to enhance immune system function, improve eyesight, protect the liver, boost sperm production and improve circulation, among other effects.
Wolfberries contain many nutrients and phytochemicals including:
11 essential and 22 trace dietary minerals
18 amino acids
6 essential vitamins
- numerous phenolic pigments (phenols) associated with antioxidant properties
Tragacanth is not a name on it’s own. The correct name is gum tragacanth and as the name suggests, it is a natural gum obtained from the sap of several Middle Eastern legumes of the genus /Astragalus/. The name is derived from the Greek /tragos/ (goat) and /akantha/ (thorn).
Gum tragacanth is a viscous, odorless, tasteless, water-soluble mixture of /polysaccharides/ obtained from the sap which is drained from the root of the plant and dried. The gum seeps from the plant in ribbons or flakes, which can be powdered.
When added to water, tragacanth absorbs water and becomes a gel, which can be stirred into a paste. It contains an alkaloid that has
historically been used as a herbal remedy for cough and diarrhea. It has also been used as a topical treatment for burns (in paste form),
and has numerous uses in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
The primary source of gum tragacanth is the desert highlands of northern and western Iran, particularly the Zagros Mountains region. In Iran, the gum is harvested seasonally by making an incision on the upper part of the taproot and collecting the exuding gum. The ribbons of gum are brought to trade centers for processing and exportation.
It has been used medicinally for thousands of years, dating back several centuries before the Christian era. In folk medicine it has been used for a laxative, persistent cough, diarrhea, and as an aphrodesiac.
Gum tragacanth, an Iranian locoweed (Astragalus), showing the rigid, sharp-pointed leaf rachises after the leaflets have dropped off. The natural polysaccharide thickening agent called gum tragacanth is obtained from the sap of this plant.
As with other water-soluble gums, there is some preliminary evidence that concomitant ingestion of tragacanth with a high sugar load can moderate the blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes, although this effect has not been demonstrated consistently and requires much more detailed investigation. Although gum tragacanth swells to increase stool weight and decrease GI transit time, it appears to have no effect on serum cholesterol, triglyceride or phospholipid levels after a 21-day supplementation period as do other soluble fibers.
Tragacanth has been reported to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.
Colostrum is high in carbohydrates, high in protein and low in fat.
Colostrum contains large numbers of antibodies called “secretary immunoglobulin” (IgA) that help protect the mucous membranes in the throat, lungs, and intestines of the infant. Leukocytes are also present in large numbers; these begin protecting the infant from harmful viruses and bacteria. Ingesting colostrum establishes beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.
Psyllium or Isapaghula is the common name and used for several members of the genus plantago, whose seeds are used commercially for the production of mucilage. P.psyllium and P.arenaria produce what is commonly known as black, French or Spanish Plantago seeds. Seeds produced from P.ovata are known in trading circles as white or blonde psyllium. Psyllium is mainly produced for its mucilage content, which is highest in P.ovata (plantago ovato).
The term mucilage describes a group of clear, colourless gelling agents derived from plants. The mucilage obtained from psyllium comes from the seed coat (therefore the name Psyllium Husk). Mucilage yield is approximately 25% by weight of total seed yield, which is extracted by mechanical means. This mucilage, when it comes into contact with water swells in volume by tenfold or more. It is not absorbed by the small intestine, and encourages regular bowel movement. It is a true dietary fibre.
P.ovata is mainly produced in India from where it is exported to the rest of the world.
Indeed, psyllium has long been recognized for its potential role in reducing blood cholesterol. As early as in 1998, the FDA already approved a health claim on psyllium: “3g to 12g soluble fiber from psyllium seed husk when included as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease”
Studies have shown that psyllium husk is effective in lowering total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein or LDL (the bad cholesterol) levels.
Other Benefits of Psyllium:
Since psyllium husk is a type of fiber, it can alleviate constipation. In addition, recent studies also showed positive benefits of psyllium in IBD (Crohn’s Disease and Colitis). Psyllium acts as prebiotics – aiding to heal the inner lining of the inflamed intestines.
Psyllium is very rich in soluble fiber. Therefore, we only need to eat a small serving to contribute the soluble fiber to help achieve the cholesterol-lowering effect.
Gynostemma pentaphyllum, also called jiaogulan in Chinese, is a herbaceous vine. It grows extensively in southern China, southern Korea and Japan. Jiaogulan is best known in traditional oriental medicine as a powerful antioxidant and has adaptogenic properties that increase longevity.
Although it is a perennial, it can be grown as an annual in most temperate climates, in well-drained soil with full sun. Each plant exists either as a male or female, meaning that if you need seeds you have to plant both a male and a female plant. Unlike most of the other plants in the same ‘family’, G.pentaphyllum does not show toxicity.
Some Uses And Active Ingredients:
Jiaogulan is available in extract (tincture), It is known as an adaptogen and antioxidant that increases SOD (superoxide dismutase) which is a powerful endogenous cellular antioxidant. Studies have shown that it increases the activity of macrophages, T lymphocytes and natural killer cells and that it acts as a tumour inhibitor. Due to its adaptogenic effects it has also been called ‘Southern’ Ginseng. It is also known as the immortality herb by locals in the Guizhou Province in southern China, where it is regularly consumed as a tea, and the people live to a very old age.
Jiaogulan is a homeostatic metabolic regulator. It works on short term, and even better on long-term stress. There are very positive effects on jet lag and altitude sickness.
Fenugreek (or foenum-graecum) is from the Latin for “Greek hay”. It is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop. Fenugreek is used both as a herb (the leaves) and as a spice (the seed). Cato the Elder lists fenugreek with clover and vetch as crops grown to feed cattle.
We are more interested in the Fenugreek Seed, which is used in many parts of the world from the earliest times down to our day.
Fenugreek seeds are a rich source of the polysaccharide galactomannan. They are also a source of saponins; other bioactive ingredients of fenugreek include mucilage, volatile oils and alkaloids.
Today Fenugreek is mainly used as a digestive aid. It is also use by nursing mothers to produce milk. It is also used to lower serum cholesterol and is given to patients with Type-1 and Type-2 diabetes. Fenugreek seeds also have hepatoprotective abilities (hepato = liver).
As a medicinal plant, fenugreek has traditionally been considered a carminative, demulcent, expectorant, laxative, and stomachic. The plant has also been employed against bronchitis, fevers, sore throats, wounds swollen glands, skin irritations, diabetes, ulcers, and in the treatment of cancer. Fenugreek has been used to promote lactation and as an aphrodisiac. Fenugreek seeds have been used as an oral insulin substitute, and seed extracts have been reported to lower blood glucose levels.
Mushrooms have been used medicinally in Japan and China for centuries with good results. They contain glucose, galactose and mannose, which are known immune system boosters. They have anti-tumour actions, suppress inappropriate immune reactions, and act as modulators of the immune system.
Another important group of glyconutrients are the complex polysaccharides contained in a variety of medicinal mushrooms. Extracts of Reishi, maitake, cordyceps and shiitake are used for immune support, in hepatitis, and in traditional Chinese medicine used for cancer treatment.
Beta Glucan (Beta Ceptor Reishi powder)
Beta glucan that is derived from Reishi mushroom (which has the highest concentration of this compound, compared to other mushrooms) is used to stimulate the immune system and has been proven to be beneficial in the treatment of some cancers and tumours.
In Japanese it is called Reishi, and in Chinese it is called Lingzhi and the Latin or botanical name is Ganoderma lucidum. It grows as a parasite in most tropical and temperate regions worldwide. It enjoys special veneration in China where it has been used in their traditional herbal medicine for more than 4,000 years, making it one of the oldest mushrooms known to have been used in medicine. In Chinese Lingzhi means “herb of spiritual potency”. In Japan it is also called mannentake, meaning “10 000 year mushroom”.
Ganoderma lucidum is the only known source of a group of triterpenes, known as ganoderic acids, which have a molecular structure similar to steroids. It is also a source of biologically active polysaccharides. An extract made using hot water proves to effectively remove most of the polysaccharides.
Reishi has some of the following properties:
Anti-tumour, immunomodulatory and immunotherapeutic because of the terpenes and polysaccharides. It is also an adaptogenic, anti-allergenic, anti-hypertensive, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal and antidiabetic.
Maitake (or Grifola Frondosa referring to a mythical griffin) is also known as Hen Of The Woods. It is an edible polypore mushroom. It grows in clusters at the foot of oak trees mostly, and the Japanese call it “maitake” literally meaning dancing mushroom.
Maitake is indigenous to the northeastern part of Japan and North America, and is prized in traditional Chinese and Japanese herbology as an adaptogen.
Use In Traditional Oriental Medicine:
The underground tubers that maitake originate from are used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine to enhance the immune system. Researchers also indicate that whole maitake has the ability to regulate blood pressure, glucose, insulin, and both serum and liver lipids. It may also be useful for weight loss.
Maitake is rich in minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium, various vitamins are also found such as B2, D2 and niacin. The one active nutrient that we are very interested in is the protein bound polysaccharide called beta-glucan. Beta glucan that is derived from maitake (which has the highest concentration of this compound, compared to other mushrooms) is used to stimulate the immune system and has been proven to be beneficial in the treatment of some cancers and tumours.
Maitake Mushroom (Grifola frondosa) may best be known for its cancer-fighting properties. It contains grifolan, an important beta-glucan polysaccharide (molecule composed of many sugar molecules linked together). Grifolan has been shown to activate macrophages, a type of cell consider the ” heavy artillery”: of the immune system, explains Larry A. Walker, Ph.D., R.D., author of “Natural products update,” published in Drug Topics, June 1997. D-fraction, one of the polysaccharides in maitake mushroom, also energized the cellular immune system.
The evidence confirming maitake’s therapeutic value – both in and out of the laboratory – is impressive. Laboratory studies have shown that maitake extract can block the growth of cancer tumors and boost the immune function of mice with cancer. Haroaki Nanba reported the findings of the following study in “Maitake D-fraction: healing and preventing potentials for cancer,” published in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, Feb/Mar 1996; In a non-randomized clinical study, 165 individuals with advanced cancer used maitake D-fraction. Patients received either maitake D-fraction alone or with chemotherapy. Maitake mushroom was found effective against leukemia and stomach and bone cancers. Responses were further improved when maitake D-fraction and chemotherapy were used together. Individuals receiving maitake D-fraction also experienced relief from the side effects of chemotherapy, such as loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea, hair loss, and deficiency of white blood cells.
Other Benefits of Maitake Mushroom
People with Type 2 Diabetes may also benefit from maitake mushroom, according to researchers Hiroaki Nanba and Keiko Kubo, authors of “Mushroom biology and mushroom products”. Researchers investigated a specific, high-molecular polysaccharide in maitake called the X-fraction. They found that mice given maitake had an increased ability to recognize glucose, and the control group had higher blood glucose levels. The researchers suggested that maitake mushroom can reduce insulin resistance, thereby increasing insulin sensitivity. The X-fraction appears to be the active compound with anti-diabetic properties. In addition, many doctors in Japan use maitake mushroom to lower blood pressure and blood lipids, two key risk factors in cardiovascular disease.
Beinfield also recommends maitake mushroom for stomach ailments. “It aids digestion by regulating the stomach and intestines, and helps eliminate food stagnation,” she explains.
Shiitake is an edible mushroom that is native to East Asia, it is generally known in the English-speaking world by its Japanese name. ‘shii’ mushroom, from the Japanese name of the tree that provides the dead logs on which it is cultivated. In Chinese it is called the ‘fragrant mushroom’. It is also known as the Chinese black mushroom and the black forest mushroom. Although shiitake are native to china, they are cultivated in both China and Japan. It has been used well over a thousand years, and some records indicate its use as far back as 199 AD.
Shiitake is listed by the physician Wu Juei, from the Ming Dynasty that the mushroom could not only be used for food but also taken as a remedy for upper respiratory diseases, poor blood circulation, liver trouble, exhaustion and weakness and to boost ‘chi’ or life energy.
Medicinal Uses For Shiitake
Shitake has been effective on tumours in laboratory mice. This is due to the polysaccharide lentinan, which is a beta glucan. It is also effective in the treatment of allergies as well as arthritis. Lenthionine, a key flavour compound of shiitake, also inhibits platelet aggregation, so it is a promising treatment for thrombosis. Shiitake is also one of the few natural sources of kosher and vegan vitamin D (vit. D2).
Fulvic acid is also known as humic extract. Very few people know about humic acid. In India it is called shaljit, which is an ancient Ayurvedic medicine, but more people however know about the people of Hunzas who live to be over 100 years old. The source of humic acid comes from the leornardite layers of the brown coal. Leonardite is the plant juices that dried up through oxidation. It was formed when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Humis acid contains the active ingredient fulvic acid, which contains over 70+ chelated minerals.
What Conditions Has It Been Used For?
It has been used by cancer patients, and by people that have a problem with tissue rejection – in transplants some excellent results have also been reported in the following:
- Anaemia Heartburn Circulation Problems Sunburn;
- Angina Haemorrhoids Common Colds Stroke;
- Arterioschlerosis High Blood Pressure Cystitis Toxic Build-Up;

- Chronic Psoriasis Shingles Gout.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar and a prominent precursor in the biochemical synthesis of Glycoselated proteins and lipids. Glucosamine is found as a major component in the exoskeletans of crustaceans. It is also present in fungi where it is one of the most abundant monosaccharides.
Glucosamine used for:
Glucosamine is mainly used to rebuild joint cartilage. People with arthritis and osteoarthritis use it extensively. Glucosamine is a precursor to glycosaminoglycans, which is the major component in joint cartilage.
Lecithin is mostly a mixture of glycolipids, triglycerides and phosopholipids. However in biochemistry, lecithin is often used to refer to pure phosphatidylcholine a phospholipids, which is either isolated from egg yolk or soy beans from which it is chemically or mechanically extracted. Highly purified lecithin is available commercially to be used as a food supplement or as medicine.
Phosphatidylcholine is an important component of the mucus layer in the large intestine. This mucus layer forms the mucosal layer, protecting the large intestine from attacks by colonic commensal bacteria. Patients suffering from ulcerative colitis have a disturbed mucosal barrier and the mucus layer in the large intestine exhibit lower levels of phosphatidylcholine than that of healthy people.
Pure lecithin is also responsible for maintaining the surface tension of the cell membranes. It therefore controls what goes in and out of each cell, allowing nutrients in, or wastes out. Without enough lecithin, the cell wall hardens, thus not allowing enough nutrients in or wastes out. This condition contributes to premature aging of the cells. The surface tension of the cell, maintained by lecithin is also responsible for transmitting nerve impulses and messages through or from the cell.
Lecithin is a popular supplement taken for the purpose of lowering cholesterol, promoting weight loss, and supporting liver health. Lecithin has been used for a number of years by many people and has undergone numerous scientific studies.
There is no denying the now established fact that soya is good for the health. Not only is it a good source of proteins, it also contains isoflavones genistein and daidzen, all of which contribute to its health-promoting goodness. Recent studies have also shown that soya contains a significant amount of antioxidants, which are chemical substances that help destroy disease causing free radicals.
Red Marine Algae
Red algae are derived from the Greek for rose (or red) plant. It includes about 5000 to 6000 different species of algae including also some notable seaweeds. Some references indicate as many as 10 000 species. Most of the coralline algae, which secrete calcium carbonate and play a major role in building coral reefs, belong to this group. Red algae such as dulse and nori are a part of European and Asian cuisine, and are used to make other products like agar, carrageenens and other food additives.
Red algae have two very unique features called pit connections and pit plugs. It is thought that the pit connections function as structural reinforcement, and as an avenue for cell-to-cell communication and/or symplastic transport in red algae. It is specifically therefore employed because of its cellular communicative properties, there are also other benefits.
Recent research and gathering of anecdotal evidence on the health benefits and antiherpetic action of the red marine alga, Dumontiaceae, has yielded much promise. Its use as a topical has been further documented and thought superior to acyclovir. It was shown to be clinically effective against herpes zoster infections as well. Anecdotal reports from patients suffering from Epstein Barr (another herpes virus) and Candida have shown marked improvement in a short period of time through oral administration (systemic).
General health benefits show red marine algae useful in weight-loss programs and for lowering cholesterol and fat in the blood. It contains soothing, mucilaginous gels such as algin, carregeenan, and agar, which specifically rejuvenate the lungs and gastrointestinal tract. Once thought of as a liability that blocked assimilation, the tough cell wall in Dumontiaceae has been found to be invaluable. It binds with heavy metal, pesticides, and carcinogens, and carries these toxins safely out of the body. Contained within the cell walls are polysaccharides, which are a complex of simple sugars. These long chained complex sugars stimulate interferon production as well as other anti-tumor and immune- enhancing activity (improving activity of T- and B-cells). Other compounds in the cell wall are related to those found in friendly bacteria which fortify and strengthen our immune systems to fight against invading organisms and toxins.
Arabino Galactan has demonstrated a wide variety of health-promoting effects, including the ability to fight specific cancers, hepatitis B and C, chronic fatigue and infections.
Arabinogalactan studies show it has an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic benefit. It also has been shown to block liver lectins that mediate tumour metastisis; block settling sarcoma L01 tumour ells, and protects intestinal mucosa against disease ad cancer promoting agents. Arabinogalactan also aids recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome.
Kelp is a vast storehouse of nutrients. Diabetics are often very deficient in trace minerals and this is one of the reasons that sugar metabolism is impaired. By providing the nutrients in a natural form, bodily function is naturally improved. Kelp is also good for stimulating metabolism (without creating jitters).
Whey protein is the name for a collection of globular proteins that can be isolated from whey, a by-product of cheese manufactured from cow’s milk. It is typically a mixture of beta-lacto globulin, alpha- lactalbumin and serum- albumin. Whey has the highest biological value of any known protein. Whey protein is easily digestable and has important disease fighting effects.
Whey protein can be denatured if exposed to high heat for prolonged periods (such as in pasteurization). When whey protein is denatured it loses some bioactive compounds like cysteine, an amino acid that is a precursor to glutathione, an antioxidant.
Benefits of Whey Protein:
To give babies all the basic amino acids
Bodybuilders and athletes
Aid in recovery and muscle growth
Individuals with suppressed immunity
Increase immune system response
Individuals with degenerative diseases
Bioactive whey protein to boost antioxidants
What is whey protein? Whey protein is a pure, natural, high quality protein from cow’s milk. It is a rich source of the essential amino acids needed on a daily basis by the body. In its purest form, as whey protein isolate, it contains little to no fat, lactose or cholesterol.
Whey protein is an excellent protein choice for individuals of all ages. It provides a number of benefits in areas including sports nutrition, weight management, immune support, bone health, and general wellness. New information on the health benefits of whey protein continues to become available as researchers discover new applications for both whey protein and its unique individual protein components.
Type 2 diabetes is a growing health problem, largely in part to the continued rise in obesity. It is not unique to adults and is becoming more of a concern for children and teenagers. The good news is that healthy nutrition practices have been shown to play a role in helping to manage, and possibly prevent, the onset of type-2 diabetes. Whey protein, a high quality, high biological value protein, is a good choice for diabetics who need to carefully manage food intake. Whey protein provides more value than equal amounts of lower quality proteins that are often higher in fat and cholesterol. In addition, whey protein helps control blood glucose levels and has been shown to be beneficial for weight management, both of which are often a concern for type-2 diabetics.
Except the eight essential glyconutrients Glycell also contains important enzymes and antioxidants.
Glycell contains digestive enzymes to help better break down ingested foods for improved absorption.
Enzymes are living, biocatalysts. They are responsible for all the functions of every organ system in our bodies. Many people have a chronic digestive enzyme deficiency.
Unfortunately, the food we eat today is devoid of enzymes because it is taken out of the food by cooking and processing. The body tries to compensate by redirecting energy and resources in order to produce digestive enzymes needed to digest the food. This subjects the body to a lot of stress because it must now produce more digestive enzymes, instead of metabolic enzymes, in order to help digest foods. This causes a lack of metabolic enzymes, which result in a weakening of the immune system and affects thousands of other processes directly related to aging. In fact, the higher the supply of enzymes you have in your body, the slower you age. Virtually all people are enzyme deficient, especially diabetics. By increasing the amount of bio-available nutrients from the food you eat, you naturally have to eat less food. Less food always equates to less strain on insulin requirements, which are already in deficient supply in a diabetic.
By adding these very important digestive enzymes to Glycell, we are assuring optimising of all the functions of every organ system in our body and further enhancement of the absorption of the required glyco-nutrients.
Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radical damage may lead to cancer. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals and may prevent some of the damage free radicals otherwise might cause. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C, E, and A, and other substances. Antioxidants can help protect your cells from free radicals, which are released during exercise.
Glycell is manufactured using only raw materials of the highest quality and the supplement is free of wheat, gluten, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, yeast, corn, preservatives, additives, artificial colours, flavours, added starch sodium.
Side effects (hfst 4)
When using Glycell you could start to detox as your body releases the captive toxins into your blood stream for excretion. For example you could experience slight headaches or tiredness. This is nothing to worry about.
Apart from detoxing Glycell does not have any side effects because it is a natural food supplement and it contains no toxicity (unlike all FDA-approved drugs). Users cannot overdose on Glyconutrients, because they are not toxic.
In a resort for children who have birth defects and childhood illnesses there is a doctor who has been known to give these children very large amounts of Glyconutrients through feeding tubes with no side effects and very positive results.
Glyconutrients are, simply put, food. They are nutrients that we don’t get in today’s diet because we no longer forage for our food off the land and, therefore, we don’t access these sugars, which are available from plant roots and fungus. The glyconutrient complex is a proprietary blend of plant-derived sugars that are available in powder or capsule form. Stabilizing glyconutrient molecules that have been extracted from plants makes Glycell supplement. In trials, Glycell supplement has been proven to be safe, and non-toxic, with no known side effects. Glycell is not disease specific or symptom specific. Glycell is not magical… but your body is.
Glycell provides the body with the nutrients to heal itself.
Glycell is not a medicine, but a natural food supplement.

Recommended use of Glycell (hfst 2)
* For chronically sick individuals and unhealthy individuals it is advisable to prevent rapid and harsh detoxification. We advise you to start out with a maximum of 4 capsules a day for the first two days. These 4 capsules spread out evenly through the day. (optimally 1 every 6 hours) After the first two days we advise you to increase with two capsules per day until maximum dosage is reached. Glycell works best when it is taken half an hour before meals. When you have to take Glycell 4 times a day the fourth time could be just before you go to sleep.
