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.
