Glyconutrient supplement factsWritten by Jeff OReilly
Unlike other nutritional supplements, glyconutrients provide monosaccharides recently identified as essential for good human health. Glyconutritionals address fundamental structure of body. Rather than trying to chelate out toxins or add a generic ingredient like argenine to increase blood flow, we are dealing with body's "garden".
Diabetes Mellitus, commonly referred to as "diabetes," means "sweet urine." Diabetes mellitus means "to flow, honey" in Greek. Diabetes is a disease that affects body's ability to produce or respond to insulin, a hormone that allows blood glucose (blood sugar) to enter cells of body and be used for energy. It results from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. In diabetes too much glucose stays in blood. Elevated levels of blood glucose (hyperglycemia) lead to spillage of glucose into urine.
Our bodies are made up of groups of cells, each cell so tiny it is invisible to naked eye. These cells reproduce themselves by dividing in a regular way so growth and repair of body tissues can take place. Cancer develops when cells start to divide at wrong time and in wrong place, then continue to divide and invade nearby tissues and organs. It is this uncontrolled growth of cells that causes a swelling or tumour.
All seven OTC NRT studies to date were combined and averaged and produced a 7% six-month quitting rateWritten by Hughes, JR, Shiffman, S, et al

OTC NRT versus OTC placebo studies The OTC NRT versus OTC placebo trials were all randomised, parallel groups studies in which subjects received free product. The first study by Schneider et al29 was only placebo controlled OTC study of nicotine gum. The study was published in 1983, 14 years before next study and had a much smaller sample size (n = 36) than other OTC studies. In addition "laboratory changes" resulted in a notably uneven distribution of subjects to nicotine and placebo groups (13 v 23). Finally, when contacted, author believed that this study did not represent an OTC setting because of amount of contact (N Schneider, personal communication, 20 September 2001). For these reasons, we decided not to include Schneider et al study29 in meta-analysis.
