Why do you Crave Food?

Have you ever wondered what's behind the crazy cravings that pregnant women go through? Have you ever wondered why you sometimes crave very specific foods to the point where you can hardly think of anything else?

For the past few years I have been explaining these cravings to others as it was told to me by an extremely respected pathologist from the Dallas area, and a very prestigious naturopath:

Food Cravings
Your body learns what nutrients are present in the foods that you have eaten. This information is stored somewhere in the brain. Then, when you are lacking a certain nutrient, it instructs you to eat the foods that it KNOWS contains these needed nutrients.

They go a little further and hypothesize that addictive molecules somehow deliver similar physiological responses as do nutrients. This may be an explanation why many people who quit smoking have an increased appetite, or why cravings for addictive substances can many times be minimized by certain foods or supplements.

I hadn't really looked up studies that either confirmed or denied this, mostly for the lack of time, but this morning I read an article that confirms what I heard and have been telling my prospects and associates for the past few years.

Decode your food cravings
The article can be found at Decode your food cravings, is on and carries the subtitle of "The urge to scarf can be a clue to your body's nutritional needs."

Article Summary
Research included more than 18,000 people and lasted over 25 years. If you crave salty food, you many have a mineral deficiency, as "studies have shown that women who eat low-calcium diets want salty foods more than those who get enough of the bone builder." Chocolate cravings, your body needs "antidepressant in dessert form" because your "happy chemicals are bottoming out and you need a quick lift." Cravings for spicy foods may be an indication that you are too hot and need to cool down. If you crave very sweet, sugary foods, you may be down and need a little pick-up. The next time you crave those tiny chocolate covered salty pretzels, it may be because you may just be looking for a little energy boost.

I suggest that you read the article as it goes into a little bit of detail as to what each of these cravings may say about your personality.

How to Make your Own Vaccine

An interesting set of events evolved today.

First my father showed me this video. Interesting, as it is true that vaccines WILL NOT display ingredients on labels.

Then I thought.. Okay, so a detergent in chemistry isn't used to keep things clean. It's used, rather to separate proteins from membranes, breaking cells apart, etc. Won't get into the details but detergents are WIDELY used in biochemistry. Many naysayers may not believe that the ingredients listed on the video are actually put into vaccines. I've gone ahead and looked up common vaccine ingredients on your behalf.

Then, a little while ago, I saw this on's front page:
"Va. teen suffers rare illness after swine flu shot"
"Boy diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, but CDC says no clear link"

No clear link? You should read this previous post of mine:
Is H1N1 (Swine Flu) Vaccine linked to Paralysis? where the CDC states that "On very rare occasions, they may develop GBS in the days or weeks following receiving a vaccination."

4 Glyconutrients Mentioned in Molecular Biology Class

When I describe glyconutrients, I describe them as essential monosaccharides found on cellular surfaces that are used for cellular communication, recognition, and adhesion.

But today in my Molecular Cellular Biology class we talked about the function and importance of 4 of the 8 glyconutrients INSIDE the cell. Yes! Glyconutrients play an extremely important role in the transportation of peptides and proteins from the nucleus to the membrane. The three glyconutrients mentioned in class are:

N-acetyl glucosamine
N-acetyl galatosamine

Brief overview of the making of a protein:

Genes transcribe mRNA through a process that I will not explain here (animation)
mRNA exists nucleus through pores
mRNA gets translated into proteins at RER
N-acetyl glucosamiine attached to asparagine amino acid (process called N-glycosylation)
- helps protein fold, activating protein
- If mannose is attached instead, protein was detected as defective and it gets sent to be degraded (broken down) instead of getting sent through to the next step in the 'protein assembly line'
Protein goes from RER to Golgi Apparatus where it gets O-glycosylated with N-acetylgalactosamine attached to a serine. This signals cell to transport glycosylated protein to the membrane (or beyond it).

The fourth glyconutrient that was mentioned was glucose. We were talking about transporters and the professor used glucose transporter for her example.

Getting Comfortable with People who Make you Uncomfortable

I tweeted this article a few months back and thought it would be a great idea to summarize the article in English and translated it into Spanish at

Getting Comfortable with People who Make you Uncomfortable

This article gets an A+ from me right off the bat because I strongly identify with its first couple of sentences: "If you’re out to create something truly great, you’ll likely need to challenge some widely held — but incorrect — beliefs. Challenging conventional wisdom is much harder than most people realize, and those that do make us uncomfortable."

The article also says that, "It’s very challenging to make decisions based on your own information and logic when everyone disagrees with your point of view." And this is the basis that the article uses to suggest that you hire people who disagree and make you uncomfortable.

The suggested "Weird Ideas that Work" are:
  1. Identify your heroes
    Keep in mind that brilliant minds in the past have made everyone around them uncomfortable because of what they were trying to achieve.
  2. Adjust your hiring process to focus on what really matters
    "Spend more time thinking about interview-based experiments that you can run on candidates to test what really matters for the role and you might find yourself hiring a different type of person."
  3. If you have a negative reaction to an idea, use the 5 Whys
    Method to get at the root cause of a problem. Let's say your computer won't start. Ask yourself why. Battery ran out, ask yourself why. and on. Obviously you want to apply this to deeper problems.
  4. Consider increasing organizational diversity
    Diversity has greater potential for better results. Here, don't look for diversity in skin color. You want to concentrate on personality, cultural, and educational (among other) diversity.

Five Reasons why no one Likes You on Twitter

Five Reasons why no one Likes You on Twitter

I tweeted this article a few months back and thought it would be a great idea to summarize the article in English and translated it into Spanish at

The five reasons (explanations for each reason are my own comments):
  1. Everyone can see that you are in it for the numbers, not the people
    If your main goal is to have a high rank and grade on Grader or a similar service, people will see right through you and will most likely decide to not follow. Eventually, you will have no real people following you. Your followers will be bots, spammers, and auto-followers.
  2. You understand social media, but you don’t understand how to be ’social'
    Twitter is about socializing! Yes. You should read tweets posted by those you are following and reply to tweets, post comments on blogs, and retweet (RT) when you come across something of interest.
  3. You don’t listen
  4. You don’t care about the people you want to be following you
    You must care about others! That's the key! When I get see a congratulatory tweet from someone I am following to someone I am not following and who isn't following me, I will take a look at the unknown profile and see if this person just achieved something that I should congratulate them on. At the very minimum you will have a brief chat with that person. That user has just promoted your username to all of his/her followers.
  5. You don’t promote others
    I automatically unfollow tweeps who do not give credit via RT's to others. Let's say one sends original and very interesting tweets. Then I see two sending the exact same tweets a few hours later. Once, twice... Conisidence, but I note it. If I see it continuously, I unfollow. I also take a look at the profile of those who follow me. If I don't see them sending public messages to other users or they have there are no RT's visible, I'm not going to follow that tweep back.
Essentially, people want to follow those who provide interesting information, those who can contribute positively to conversations, and those who are willing to edify others. Be real, converse with other tweeps.

Take Advantage of the Power in a Patent

Today the world witnessed the true power of patented technology when i4i Inc. won a patent infringement suit against software giant, Microsoft.

You can read an article about this on Mashable:

As it stands, Microsoft (MS) can no longer sell, import, or in anyway distribute Microsoft Word in the United States. Another article I read said MS had to pay i4i Inc. $290 million for damages.

Now that i4i Inc. has defended this patent in court, they are virtually unstoppable in the XML arena.

What if YOU could be like i4i Inc. and own patented technology that everyone wants?
You can! We have over 43 patents worldwide on our advanced glyconutrients product. Recent scientific research indicates that the eight essential monosaccharides found in our glyconutritional product are necessary for proper cellular communication. It is the envy of ALL pharmaceutical and medical research facilities. Additionally, our multivitamin and multimineral product has patents on the hydroponic method and nutrient extractions used to create it. It was the very first multivitamin & multimineral product to be sold that contained ALL ingredients from a plant source.

Like i4i Inc. our patents have already been defended in court! We literally have no competition because no other company can have a glyconutritional product (and everything else that other patents protect us from).

There is no better business strategy or opportunity. Contact us today to schedule a 45 minute webinar. Free, with no obligation.

How Retailers Could Profit from Twitter

I'm fairly new to Twitter. I think I've used it for about a month and a half. And really had no clue what it was up until then. I don't consider myself to be an average user of anything, as my mind is always thinking of ways something works or how it can be improved.

Such is the case with Twitter. I have read tweets about retailers and fortune 100 companies getting on Twitter and how big biz is having problem using Twitter to advertise successfully.

I have an idea...

Most sites (Amazon, Walmart, Dell, Zappos, etc.) require that online customers have an account at their site. This makes for and excellent marketing opportunity. Amazon does an amazing job at tracking user preferences and interests to target the marketing for an individual. It is also known that now-a-days (in the Web2.0) era, consumers are interested in what other people are buying and recommending.

Here's my suggestion to online retailers (and if you aren't online, get online and do this):
Make app that will tweet "I just purchased WHATEVER from RETAILER for PRICE. Get yours at URL-TO-PRODUCT" upon a purchase.

This shouldn't be that hard to do. In fact, half the work may already be done! With TwitterFeed, all retailers would have to do is set up an RSS feed for each user. The user would have the option to add this RSS feed to their TwitterFeed.

I am an Amazon affiliate... I would only hope that Amazon would allow consumer recommendations to be tweeted in such a way that the affiliate would receive $. In other words, someone goes to a site that features books. Affiliate gets commission from purchase and Amazon tweets advertisement. Affiliate would also get, at least a partial commission, from purchases that occur by someone following the link on the tweet.

After a few days of having received the product, an option would be extended to the consumer to grade the product. This would generate ANOTHER tweet similar to the previous one but it would contain the grade.

Awesome Twitter Apps: Twaitter & Twitter Grader

My previous post about Twitter applications had information about who I prefer to follow, and how I manage my posts through TweetDeck and TwitterFeed. These two continue to prove invaluable: TweetDeck for everyday interactions with people and TwitterFeed for automated posts of any new content added to our site, our blog, and our Delicious bookmarks.

I have, however, discovered a couple more applications that help manage my content.

Twaitter is a service that allows you to schedule tweets so they may be posted at certain times. For example, a "Happy New Year's" tweet that is sent every January 1st, at 12:00AM. You have the option to set up a reocurring tweet (as would be the example New Year's message) or one time tweets.

How are one-time tweets beneficial?
I use Twitter for networking. I connect with others who share the same interests as I do. I also connect with potential, present, and past customers. There are also people who follow me because they like to read the information I provide. If I know I will be away from my computer for a prolonged period of time, I may enter some tweets that are relevant to the current topic/content I have been tweeting recently and set those tweets to post every hour or two. This way followers get the information they expect. How about setting up a famous #FollowFriday on Wednesday? Sure! You can't possible suggest everyone in one single tweet. So once you have a #FollowFriday tweet that is at capacity, 'set it and forget it' by scheduling the post sometime on Friday.

The next service is for SEO, and marketing research (sort of).

Twitter Grader is a service that works, and can be used, in almost the same manner as Alexa for websites. You simply type in your Twitter username and it will generate a report of the number of followers you have, the number of people you are following, your rank, some suggestions, and a grade. Of course the rank and grades are based on a contrast between your profile and all other Twitter profile.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter: @glycotraner. I am excellent at responding to dire messages (DM) and any other public mentions (@glycotrainer) you make.

Looking for Individuals with Business (& sales) Experience

GlycoTrainer is expanding and we are looking for 4 individuals in the US who may have domestic (in the US) and international contacts.

Are you looking for a way to supplement your income?
The economy is at its weakest point in as long as anyone can remember; Foreclosures continue at an almost uncontrollable rate; There have been thousands of layoffs since November (more are planned). Now, more than ever you must look for additional income opportunities. If your only source of income is through a job, read "Build your own job security" for details as to what experts are saying about relying on a salary from your job during these tough economic times.

Are you tired of living paycheck to paycheck?
"In order to change we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired."

Unless you are truly sick and tired of your current situation and you are willing to step out of your comfort zone for a short period of time while you build your nest-egg, you will continue to live paycheck to paycheck. This is the way many people want to live, more power to them. But you are reading this because you, at the very least, don't think this way. You can make $2,600 USD in the next four weeks. In fact, some are already doing it in a single day! But we understand that not everyone comes into this with the same aggressiveness. That's why there are others who take up to three months to do this. The time in which you make this money is up to you. The really nice part about making these $2,600 USD is that you are set up to receive, on average, $150 USD per month for the rest of your life! That's residual income. Money that you will receive forever. What could you do with an extra $150 USD each month? Contact us for details.

What is required by you?
First, willingness and desire. And you've proved to have it by being here.

Secondly, plug into our team. Be willing to learn and grow, and think about others first. You will be part of the health and wellness industry and as such, many of your customers will be ill.

It's been a few days shy of a month since the first "Tweet" was posted on It took a few days to figure it out, but has been an awesome communication tool since!
The very first person I followed was Tony Robbins (@tonyrobbins). His name showed up in the "Trendy Topics" list. The guy is full of positive energy! It's awesome to read his posts. Once I got the hang of it, I began to look for profiles that posted relative content to ours (health, wellness, finances, motivational, industry news, etc). At the moment, these are my favorites:
  • @tonyrobbins - As eluted to earlier, Tony Robbins is the definition of positive. His posts will make your day. His sincerity comes through to you via every single one of his posts. Thank you, Tony!
  • @glicoentrenador - GlycoTrainer (us) in Spanish.
  • @quotegarden - Health and Motivational quotes.
  • @clarkhowardshow - Clark Howard is amazing at finding great offers & at money management. He's money savvy and you are guaranteed to learn how to spend less, save/invest more, legal matters, how to improve your credit score, and a lot more.
  • @HealthyMinute - Lots of health information. Pete posts about weight loss and management, proper nutrition, and all types of related information. Tweets very frequently.
  • @Prebiotics - This company posts non-stop information and articles about prebiotics and probiotics. A lot of the information they post mentions health benefits of pre- and probiotics.
  • @mberg - Ex-coworker, buddy of mine. Matt is part of GeekCorps. He doesn't post as often as he should. When he does, it's about the aide he and his peers offer third-world (Matt happens to be in Africa) countries.
  • @WhatsGabyCookin - Delicious food recipes. Gaby is ex tennis player who still works out. So you KNOW this food has to be healthy (for the most part).
  • @MannaRelief - Non-profit organization that gives free glyconutrients (and other children's supplements) to orphans worldwide (mostly in third world nations.
  • @iamdiddy - Sean Diddy Combs... Tweets motivational messages very often. It's an aw@esome chance to get into a multi-millionaire's head.
  • @DaveDube - Inspirational, networking tips. Dave Dube posts a lot of Zig Ziglar quotes.
  • @YouQuotedQuoes - Inspirational and motivational quotes.
  • @DanTanner - Market information. Dan Tanner posts profit declarations by companies, stock updates, market updates, and other investment related information.
  • @PJA64X - Inspirational and motivational quotes.
  • @Alyssa_Milano - Enough said.
So, as mentioned, GlycoTrainer has two accounts with Twitter. @glycotrainer for English tweets and @glicoentrenador for Spanish tweets. It was getting a little hectic to keep track of tweets and their translations. I looked into installing TweetDeck a couple of weeks ago but had been unable to do so until this morning. It is awesome!

Keeping track of both accounts is extremely easy! Here's how it works:
  • On one column, you are shown you tweets from those you are following. Exact content as is found on "Home" within your Twitter account.
  • On another column, you are shown posts that mention you. Exact content as is on "Updates Mentioning [you]" within your Twitter account.
  • On another column, you are shown suggestions of people you may want to follow. This seems to not work as well as it should. So far, most of the suggestions I've gotten have been of not interest to me whatsoever.
Of course the columns described above can be removed and added at a later date. They can also be shifted from side to side. The idea here is that the interface is configurable. This is a must-have twitter application.

I have been manually tweeting new site and blog posts. As you can imagine, it can become a hassle to have to log into the blog, write it, go to twitter, get URL from or something similar, think of clever 140 character (including short URL) statement about blog. And then have to do the same for Spanish. No no... To help with this, I am now (as of today) using TwitterFeed. This application, as TweetDeck, is a must have!
So what this application does is read a feed and post its title and a description. The awesome part of this application is that it automatically shortens the URL and from it, finds the exact number of characters that it will display as a tweet. You can choose to tweet the title only or the title and the articles description. This is going to work out just fine for us at GlycoTrainer because our entire site is powered by WordPress. WordPress provides an RSS Feed that TwitterFreed integrates with easily.

Build your own job security

Want Job Security? Build It Yourself
Reported on Yahoo!

Things to consider that are mentioned as to the risk of finding and relying on employment:
  • "the largest 500 companies in America have cut more than 575,000 jobs since November."
  • "It's all risky out there. Big companies are no longer a safe haven; small companies are no longer only the bold."

The rest of the article is about where to find capital to fund your business venture. These are:
  1. Hit up Uncle Sam
    " President Obama in March pledged up to $15 billion in stimulus funds to boost SBA lending"
  2. Find a Solo Angel
    "clubs of high-worth individuals who band together to finance fledgling companies"
  3. Stay Close to Home
    "While national banks were hit hard by the fallout on Wall Street, many community banks and credit unions claim it's business as usual."
  4. Weigh the Alternatives
    "Consider alternative types of loans and financing arrangements that let you pledge assets or outstanding invoices as collateral."
  5. Tap Your Ingenuity
    "vast majority of money that young companies spend comes from their founders' wallets"
    "Many tap personal savings, credit cards, severance payouts and retirement nest eggs to fund their businesses."
    "One strategy that can be a winner: Running two businesses at once, using one to generate current cash and the other as their long-term potential home run."
We have a sixth suggestion:
What if you could simultaneously make both types of incomes (immediate and long-term), as described on #5 from the list above? What if you could start this business without having to invest a substantial amount? Imagine getting products that change lives with your investment. And as an added bonus, how would you like a 6 MONTH, FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE?

Oh yes... and I've just put it in writing!
Start your business for $499
Get $630 worth of life changing products
Make immediate income and set up a long term residual base simultaneously
6 month, money back guarantee

As the famous line goes "But wait, there's more!": you are not only limited to the U.S. Market. Upon start-up, you have the option to conduct and grow your business in a dozen countries worldwide, and the number grows each year.

Contact us today to get started.

Vasectomy on Wrong Patient

Doctors Accused of Performing Vasectomy on Wrong Patient - 07/01/09

Over and over, we tell you that you are the only person responsible for your health. No one else can help you as much as you can. Medication has a long list of unproven, damaging, and life-taking endings, even when administered to the right people and at the correct doses. Medical mistakes are more frequent than you are led to believe by the FDA, CDC, and the medical industry.

To some, the article above may be funny. To others, the article might bring up thought of "This happens so infrequently that I don't run the risk." Yet others may be led to believe that these mistakes don't happen in the U.S. Wrong, wrong, and incredibly wrong!

Surgical mistakes persist in Bay State reported by The Boston Tribune, mentions that there were "36 instances when doctors performed the wrong procedure or operated on the wrong site or wrong patient between January 2005" and September of 2007. And "38 cases of sponges, surgical instruments, or other pieces of equipment left inside patients." In a two year period? That's almost 3 wrong procedures every 5 months and almost 7 cases where a surgical tool/accessory is left in a patient, ever 10 months! Collectively, it's fair to say either occurred at least once a month. I was really looking for CDC stats but couldn't find them. If you run across one, please post it as a comment.

Obviously when it's a life-threatening situation such as trauma, you have no alternative options. But if the doctor makes an appointment and your a few months away, start looking! Read, educate yourself. "Doctors, however, are not trained in nutrition, prevention, or supplements." Educate yourself about these topics. If there are no improvements by the time your scheduled surgery comes around, go through with it. Get the procedure, as planned by your care-giver (physician). But there is always the chance of having success and not having to undergo surgery, as scheduled and expected by your doctor.

Stupid is defined as doing the same thing and expecting different results. What are you doing different from the other patients that your doctor is in charge of? If the answer is nothing, don't expect to have different results.

Do Not Take Medication to Prevent an Infection

Medicine is a necessary evil.

You should be EXTREMELY cautious when taking medications and you should look for a way to repair the body in such a way that the medication is no longer necessary. Continuous use of medication of ALL types will inevitably lead to a severe side-effect. As was posted in "Medical and Pharmaceutical Influence," the overuse of medications like acetaminophine and salicylic acid are the primary overdoses seen in ER rooms all over the nation while the overuse of antibiotics is a primary contributor to an overgrowth of C. diff.

As pertains to this post, we'd like to urge you to stop taking medications that are meant to treat and cure viral and microbial infections as a prevention method. The use of these treatments, first of all, should be under the supervision of a qualified physician.

This article examplifies why it is a bad idea to use anti-viral and anti-bacterial medication as a prevention method:
"Drug resistant swine flue seen in Danish patient"
- Patient had been taking Tamiflu as a preventive measure

Viruses and bacterial have a tremendous ability to mutate. And these mutations, as we can see, can (and most likely will) yield an medication-resistant viral/microbial strand.

So medication should be taken for as small amount of time as possible and ONLY IF a doctor orders it. And NEVER, EVER, take a medicine, like Tamiflu, to prevent an infection. Infections simply don't work this way.

You should be thinking of prevention. That is good! But not in this manner. Think of prevention in strengthening your immune system by providing your body with a proper diet and supplements.

Probiotic vs. Prebiotic

Here's a question we received yesterday through our contact us form at after our probiotic supplement page was posted:

"What's the difference between a probiotic and a prebiotic?"

This is a GREAT question. Terms sound very much alike, yet mean completely different things. In as short of an answer as possible, a probiotic provides the gut with bacteria, in contrast to a preobiotic, which provides food for already existing bacteria in the gut.

A longer, more elaborate, and substantiated answer follows:

According to the WHO, a probiotic is a "Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host."[1]

Recent studies with probiotics have indicated tremendous health benefits, far beyond merely reestablishing bacterial balance in the intestine. In fact, this Mayo Clinic page says that "probiotics are ... are sometimes used for gastrointestinal conditions such as diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome. They may also help your body digest lactose."

"I'm a great believer in probiotics," says Walter J. Coyle, MD, director of the Gastrointestinal Program at Scripps Clinic Medical Center in La Jolla, California "I definitely recommend them for irritable bowel syndrome, regulation, and bloating."[2]

I'll leave it up to you to do a search for probiotic information as we are legally obligated to not mention specific diseases. So go to your favorite search engine and look for something interesting.

A prebiotic is a food ingredient that the body cannot digest and somehow stimulates the growth or activity of bacteria. Essentially, it's in your food but it doesn't feed you, it feeds the your intestinal flora. These are normally medium-sized chains of carbohydrates (scientifically known as oligosaccharides). Hmm.. what do I know of that contains oligosaccharides? Oh yeah! Our glyconutrients supplement![3] Right.

To summarize, a probiotic adds organisms to your gut; a prebiotic add food for organisms in your gut.

From "World's 65 and older to triple by 2050"

"Census data suggests U.S., other nations, could struggle to support elderly"
Located at:

The article reports that by mid-21st century, 1 in 6 people will be of age 65 or older. goes on to explain that this will be a problem for nations around the world. Here, in the U.S. it says "Medicare is projected to become insolvent by 2017..."

I think we all know that Social Security is on its way out as well. Elders can no longer expect to retire on Social Security alone. This would be my parents' generation. My generation will not see a single dollar from Social Security.

This is not news, guys! Recent polls indicate that 98% of the U.S. population looses sleep over health (#1) and money (close #2) problems. That's exactly the problems that the article mentions these retirees will have to face!

We offer a unique opportunity! An opportunity to take the best glyconutritional supplements on the market! As explained here, taking glyconutrients will have a positive impact on your health! Sharing the glyconutrients with those closest to you will generate income that could very well reach an amount which will let you retire comfortably. We have people already making enough money to retire before reaching retirement age. After all, retirement has nothing to do with age; it has to do with having the money to not have to work again.

Read "Harsh Habitat." The page explains why the world is not a friendly environment for us to live in anymore. If this is true today, what shape can we expect our environment to be in in 2050? One thing is certain. Pollution adds to ailments and diseases. It is probable that by that time, we will need to worry about people who are 30 and up.

Our first post...

Of course it has to be about our flagships product, glyconutrients. Our challenge isn't what to write about. No. Our challenge is HOW to write it.

We are well aware of the millions of site out there offering supplements & glyconutrients to you and the rest of the online community. Just now, a Google search for glyconutrients returned "about 245,000" results (one for supplements returned over 50 million).

So what makes us different? Why are you here? Why should you stay and continue to read this post? Why should you come back to read new posts?

First, let's separate those who offer glyconutrients from those who simply sell supplements. Without glyconutrients, no supplement regimen can be complete. Read "Glyconutrients" on our site to learn more about these essential saccharides. Next, let's exclude those who do not have a glyconutritional supplement with the eight essential glyconutrients (glucose, galactose, mannose, xylose, n-acetyl glucosamine, n-acetyl galactosamine, fucose, and n-acetyl neuraminic acid). This will leave you with a single manufacturer which has patented the mixing of the monosaccharides previously listed. If your glyconutrient vendor cannot provide you with a patent, they either do not contain all eight of the glyconutrients or the company will soon be legally told to stop making and selling glyconutrients (as has been the case in a few patent-protection trials).

GlycoTrainer is a representative for the very company that owns the glyconutritional patents. But we are not the only representatives. The manufacturer is publicly traded and was named the 5th best small company out of 200 by Forbes in October of 2006. The company has over half a million such distributors.

So why trust us? Why partner with GlycoTrainer?

Visit our site ( Read some of the pages and posts. Although the content may seem familiar and look like the same glyconutritional information you find at the other quarter of a million pages returned by Google, look closely. Our content is unique. NOTHING was copied and simply pasted from other pages. Our authors, readers, and business associates are professional and some have medical and scientific backgrounds. To show appreciation for the science field, get approval from scientists and doctors, and more importantly to earn your trust, we have included a reference section at the bottom of all pages which require one. So don't take our word for it... Read the documents we have cited.

Additionally, our WHOLE site is in English and Spanish. Each page links to it's translated counterpart. We expect to add more languages in the future.

We at GlycoTrainer know you appreciate attention to detail. We know you want to partner with a team who doesn't let important things "fall through the cracks." Be assured that we form part of the best training group that exists in the world of glyconutrition.
