The Eight Essential Glyconutrients
The following description of the eight essential glyconutrients comes in part from 'Sugars that Heal' by Dr Emil Mondoa & Mindy Kitei.

In animal studies it has been shown that galactose inhibits tumour growth and its spread, particularly to the liver, and to protect from cataracts. Galactose enhances would healing, decreases inflammation, enhances cell-cell communication, and increases calcium absorption. It has also been shown to trigger long term memory formation.
