Is Glyconutrients Safe To Be Taken With Xtend-Life Natural Health Supplements?

An Xtend-Life user sent out this question to Warren:

I am taking all of your products except the Cholesterol formula and feeling great. Now I have learned of Glyconutrients and would like to know how Warren feels about these and if they would be necessary or harmful to take along with Xtend Life products? I really don't want to overload my system with something that is not needed.

I will certainly appreciate his advice.

Warren's reply

Warren answered by stating that the term "glyconutrients" is mainly a sales and marketing term.

It is the multi-level marketing (MLM) company called MannaTech that coined and can be credited to the popularity of this term "glyconutrients" - they produce several products that contain special sugars called polysaccharides.

Polysaccharides can be extracted from a number of different sources, and aloe vera is one of them. Warren explains that Mannatechs 'claim to fame' is that Mannatech holds the worldwide patents on a specific extraction method of these sugars because of that, they are the only ones that have access to these special sugars for use in supplements.

He declined to comment on the scope and reach of Mannatech's patents but he says that there are several manufacturers of these 'glyconutrients' or polysaccarides which is the correct term. He explained that the extraction process may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but the end result of the polysaccharide 'fraction' is similar.

Warren added that Xtend-Life also uses one of the special fractions of aloe vera polysaccharides within the immunity blend component of Xtend-Life Total Balance, and added that they're really good building up immunity.

Warren then mentioned that there is no need to take any additional glyconutrients/polysaccarides, nor incur the addditional costs because the Xtend-Life products already contains the benefits of the glyconutrients/polysaccarides through the Xtend-Life products the user was taking.

If any user of the Total Balance is not on the full dosage, Warren recommends that the user get more benefit but raising the daily dosage to the maximum recommended dosage rather than purchasing additional glyconutrients/polysaccarides.

On the other hand, if one has additional surplus of extra money, users will not be doing their bodies harm by taking extra glyconutrients/polysaccarides, but it's not really required if you're in fair health.

Warren finished answering the question by asking the user is the user was taking the Xtend-Life Neurological Formula (Sleep, Recall and Serenity) and that half a dose of any of those would be beneficial to their overall nervous system and would like be a better option than to purchase additional glyconutrients/polysaccarides.
