    I've been encountered with a product by Mannatech. It's some sort of a super multi-vitamin that includes Glyconutrients. It supposed to give you 8 essential sugars that your body needs and food alone only contain 2 of the 8. Do anyone every experience or heard of these wonder pills?

    Especially considering they're all broken down into more or less the same shit once in your body anyhow.

    it's more of an optimization type of thing

    you get most of them through breast milk and recent research has been showing that these glycs and their forms can have a range of health benefits

    if you don't know, why are you commenting?

    I thought essential-whatever were nutrients you had to acquire from food because your body couldn't make them?

    I understand that and that was clearly not my point, hence the italicizing of need.

    When in my post did I point out that I "don't know" :ugh: Gylconutrients are pointed out to have a lot of benefits mainly from the people that are trying to push their products, but still a number of other sources are saying they are pretty beneficial. I agree with your optimization point, however, they are clearly not a neccessity which is what I was pointing out. It just sounds like another "OMG you NEED Creatine" when plenty of people get along quite nicely without it.

    essential wouldn't necessarily be the proper word
