Behind the name sugar lies an entire class of substances that perform many different tasks in the human organism. Complex sugar components, in combination with proteins and fats, form the surface structure of all cells in the body. This surface structure is vital for the exchange of information between cells.
Over 200 simple sugars occur in nature. Eight of these simple sugars are particularly important for the human organism and are therefore called essential. Glucose and galactose are essential sugars that occur in many foods. The six other essential sugars can only be synthesized in the body with a high expenditure of energy and time (mainly from glucose).
Glyco Complex contains all essential simple sugars in a balanced combination and from natural sources such as aloe vera, manna, tragacanth and angelica root, which also provide secondary plant metabolites and adaptogens.
