Glycosylation: Necessary for Life
What is Glycosylation?
The adding of a polysaccharide (chain of sugars) to a polypeptide (chain of amino acids) in order to make a glycoprotein.
A glycoprotein exists when a membrane associated carbohydrate is exclusively in the form of oliogsaccharides covalently attached to proteins forming glycoproteins, and to a lesser extent covalently attached to lipid forming the glycolipids. Glycoproteins consist of proteins covalently linked to a carbohydrate.
The predominant sugars found in glycoproteins are:
Detailed science discussing Carbohydrates and Glycosylation this information is detailed scientific validation and is intended for medical professionals. Many proteins pertinent to normal cell physiology are glycosylated (have sugars attached), and variations in their glycosylation pattern often lead to changes in their function. Most major diseases are associated with a change in the glycosylation pattern of a central protein structure. Your body is made up of over 600 trillion cells. Cells are constantly being born and dying and cells have different life spans ranging from hours to years.

CELL TYPE LIFESPANS
When you consume glyconutrients you do not have control over which cells will be glycosylated or how many.
The cells that expired are being replaced by cells, which also need to be glycosylated and you may or may not have sufficient glyconutrients available at that moment to get that job done. With this in mind it will, in most cases, take months at a minimum to glycosylate the cells you need for your particular health issue.Learn more about Glycosylation by obtaining Dr Nugent’s book:You will be enlightened by the information contained in this book. Its focus is on categories of health, not disease. Its real simple and real easy to understand.
