History of Glyconutrient Research
The discovery of the 8 essential glyconutrients dates back to the 1980s when Dr Bill McAnalley, a research pharmacologist commenced investigations to determine the active ingredient in Aloe Vera. Several years later he discovered the active ingredient was a carbohydrate with many mannose sugar molecules linked together. But it wasn't as simple as just extracting the mannose from the aloe, the mannose needed to be stabilised as it became inactive quite quickly. A method was developed to stabilise mannose and now over 100 patents protect this process in numerous countries.
The research findings commenced to appear in scientific journals such as Glycobiology Journal and Journal of Biotechnology. In 1990 the Journal of Biotechnology states: 'Almost without exception, whenever two or more living cells interact in a specific way, cell surface carbohydrates will be involved.'
This period was followed by several years of scientific validation which led eventually to the knowledge of the importance of the 8 essential glyconutrients being mainstreamed. Mannatech became a leader in scientific research and development in 1994, and continues to leads the industry.
