Overview

Putting the terms "sugar" and "health" together seems almost like a paradox, but emerging evidence shows that certain types of sugars - commonly called saccharides or glyconutrients - are responsible for fighting off disease and maintaining overall health. In Miracle Sugars, author Rita Elkins explains how eight essential sugars are at the core of our cells' ability to communicate and cooperate in the maintenance and balance of our bodies. The book outlines how these essential saccharides - which are found naturally in food and in available supplements - can fight infection, enhance immune function and battle an impressive variety of health disorders. These sugars have been shown to reverse autoimmune disorders and diabetes, ease allergy symptoms, lower risk of heart disease, and improve overall function of the body's immune processes. Common infections, including cold, flu, ear infections, and herpes, respond well to use of saccharides, as do symptoms of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and lupus. Even cancer patients have found gylconutrients to enhance traditional treatments while lessening their debilitating side effects. Supported by current and exciting research, Miracle Sugars provides authoritative proof that these "miracle" glyconutrients promise a world of benefits when it comes to your health.
