Scientific American devoted the entire July 2002 issue to these glyconutrient sugars, calling them the "Sweet Medicine" of the future.
Science Magazine, the premier journal for researchers and scientists, dedicated the entire issue of March 23, 2001 to the emerging field of glycobiology and predicted exciting possibilities for healthcare with these sugars.
Biotechnology predicted over 10 years ago the importance of these cellular carbohydrate sugars, and devoted an entire issue, Feb 1990 to this. "Almost without exception, whenever two or more living cells interact in a specific way, cell surface carbohydrates will be involved. From the first meeting of sperm and egg, through embryogenesis, development and growth, carbohydrate molecules confer exquisite specificity upon cell-cell interactions."
Muscle & Fitness magazine reported in their May 1999 issue on these "Super Sugars" and called them "the key to renewed immunity". The article went on to state that without these Super Sugars, "your recovery from intense training may be compromised and your gains in lean body mass impeded."
Dr. John Rollins, former head of the biotechnology division of the U.S. Patent Office, calls glyconutrients one of the most important healthcare discoveries of the 21st century.
Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, received a $34 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2003 to lead a study to better understand how cells use sugar compounds to communicate, an important step to understanding disease.
Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation was awarded in September 2003, a $10 million grant from the NIH to learn more about the role of the sugars in biology.
Harpers' Biochemistry, one of the major textbooks used in medical schools, discusses the importance of glyconutrient sugars to cells since being published in it in 1996.
Physician's Desk Reference, the PDR for Non-Prescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements discusses these saccharides since edition 22 published in 2001, and notes that "those who have health challenges may discern improvements in specific signs and symptoms".
New Scientist, Sweetness and Might: Awesome power of the glycome" October 26, 2002. John Hopkins University biochemist, Gerald Hart, states "We won't understand immunology, neurology, developmental biology or disease until we get a handle on glycobiology."
MIT Technology Insider, Feb. 2003, "If you don't have glycosylation, you dont' have life." "The medical potential is absolutely enormous."
