A Sugar that is good for us

Please be sure to check out the update 8/21/21 at the end of this post.

Glyconutrients are a group of sugars extracted from plants and thought to be essential for the body by helping cell-to-cell communication.

I first heard about glyconutrients as I listened to an interview about restoring our bodies to normal with Dr. Reg McDaniels as I was trying to learn about his product called New Eden. Their glyconutrients are taken from Aloe.

I posted on a forum for PwP that I was going to try it, and received (an opinion) that “It is just a sugar substitute… nothing to it.” So I typed glyconutrients into a search where I saw Mannitol credited with having glyconutrients. I remembered seeing posts where various PwP had attempted to steer us to Mannitol. ………………………………………………………………..

That is when I found research findings made in Israel (you will need to read the script, unless you are fluent in their language) on the web site for Mannitol. “Homeotreat developed a unique MANNITOL powder, containing, not only the natural sweetener (Made from vegetables such as onions, pumpkin, seaweed, mushrooms and more), which causes a decrease in the production of the alpha-synuclein protein but also the MUCUNA plant, which supports the increase in the amount of essential ingredients to healthy brain function.” ………………………………………………………………….

Mannitol is a type of carbohydrate called a sugar alcohol, or polyol, which are water-soluble compounds that occur naturally in many fruits and vegetables.

There are basically eight glyconutritients that scientists know about. These include: – Fucose – Galactose – Glucose – Mannose – N-AcetylGalactosamine
– N-AcetylGlucosamine – N-AcetylNeuraminic acid AND– Xylose

…………………………………………………………………

Then I discovered another web site with this statement : “– mannose and galactose — are the most important of all the different Glyconutrients. In fact, these two Glyconutrients act as the commander in chief for all immune system and cell to cell communication processes. Based on real scientific evidence, there is absolutely no validity whatsoever when it comes to the so called eight essential sugar theory that many companies tout in selling their Glyconutrient products. The bottom line is that the more you increase the level of other plant sugars in a Glyconutrient product other than Aloe Vera galactomannans, the more real health properties are diminished.

“It turned out that MPS had been isolated from Aloe, and extracted and dried as a powder extract utilizing a proprietary method. More specifically, MPS is a specific molecule called the galactomannan that is a combination of galactose and mannose in long linear chains.” –this one was pricy.. $190./30 day supply

.

I saw that Mannitol powder is sold (some claiming to be 100% pure) from lots of sources. locally at Walmart. drug stores or health food stores as well as online from many sources. It is sold as a low glycemic sweetener. The price is extremely cheep compared to the three I listed above. And from posts of users I have concluded, not as effective… depending on source and purity, etc…

……………………………..Approved as an injectable Medication

As a medication, it is used to reduce intraocular pressure in the eyes, as in glaucoma. The mannitol is a new solute in the intravascular space, which increases the tonicity of the blood plasma. The increased tonicity of the blood plasma draws water out of the vitreous humor of the eye and into the intravascular space.

Diuretic: It can be used in a lung test to diagnose asthma and other breathing problems.

……………………………………………….As a supplement:

Mannitol powder it may have some health benefits when taken as a supplement. Mannitol may support the digestive system, kidneys, and bladder.

Mannitol is a type of sugar alcohol used as a sweetener. It is used in diabetic food as it is poorly absorbed by the intestines. In addition to being found in whole foods, mannitol is commercially produced to help reduce calories from sugars in packaged foods. Its most common application is in chewing gums, both as a sweetener and as a powder to keep pieces of gum from sticking to its wrapping and machinery.

Mannitol has a variety of uses and it is also used to reduce elevated pressure in the brain (Central oedema) and in the eyes. Mannitol is a common low-calorie sweetener approved by the FDA and EFSA. ……………………………………………………………..

Sugar alcohols, including mannitol, have been shown to benefit oral health in several ways. They don’t contribute to cavity formation. When used as a sweetener in gum, the act of chewing also protects teeth from cavity-causing bacteria by promoting the flow of saliva. The FDA recognizes mannitol and other sugar alcohols as beneficial to oral health ……………………………………………………………..

When John and I began the New Eden, we were just doing the recommended dose. But since that time, I have learned that is considered a maintenance dose. For acute out of balance bodies, Dr. McDaniel recommends doubling the daily intake. I’m sure with two of us using from the same cannister, we will run out before the next cannister is set to arrive. [if on autoship, the cost including shipping is $109. /330 grams]

Since I had opted to purchase of the product from Israel, which includes the Mucuna. [but the glyconutrients aren’t derived from Aloe] I will alternately use the Mannitol in place of the New Eden… and attempt to notice any variations in body responses. for price comparison… 900 g / 109.90 +shipping from Israel $25.85 = $136.75

John said, ” the way I presented it seemed a bit negative.’… Not my intention. If you listen to the linked videos, you may feel more positivity.

8/21/21 By way of update

Dr McDaniel has, since I typed this, gone into business with his son A new company is very nearly ready to launch. AscendSciences.com With a Projection to launch internationally and able to place larger bulk otders, they are able to get the products that were in the new Eden at a considerable price reduction plus Dr McDaniel has been able to incorporate 5 additional nutrition enhancing products to make the best formula ever. The percent of the Aloe Mannitol has not been lowered.

The new product Q800+ will be available for something like $88. very soon.

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
