Glyconutrients or Monosaccharide’s are the building blocks of carbohydrates.
These sugars are also known as the essential sugars or eight essential sugars.
Mono- Means Single and Saccharide- Means Sugar.
The essential elements of carbohydrates are found mostly in plants.
These essential sugars are not the same as what we know as table sugar, they are however nutrient rich carbohydrates that can be found in foods.

- Antacids – That combine Aluminum and Magnesium Hydroxides, can deplete Vitamins A and B1, as well as Iron,Phosphate and Calcium.
- Barbiturates -Increase the bodies need for Vitamin D
- Caffeine -Because of its Diuretic properties, Can double Calcium Loss.

Unfortunately for doctors there has been very little in there medical text books about healthy nutrition until today, they are now becoming more aware of these sugars for a healthy lifestyle and better way of life.
