Harpers Biochemistry 24th Edition
Harpers Biochemistry, a medical textbook that
has been educating healthcare professionals
about Glyconutrients and their role in health and healing since 1996.
From a clinical perspective, one class of nutrients
absolutely necessary for optimal cellular communication
and which is essentially missing from our food supply is glyconutrients.
These are necessary carbohydrates (monosaccharides) that
according to the 1996 edition of Harper’s Biochemistry,
only 2 or 3 of the necessary 8 are commonly found in our diet.
These monosaccharides provide the necessary building blocks that
enable the cells of our body to communicate effectively.

Other disorders in which glycoproteins have been
implicated include hepatitis B and C, Creutzfeldt-
Jakob disease, and diarrheas due to a number of bacterial
enterotoxins. It is hoped that basic studies of glycoproteins
and other glycoconjugates (ie, the field of
glycobiology) will lead to effective treatments for diseases
in which these molecules are involved. Already, at
least two disorders have been found to respond to oral
supplements of sugars.

Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry from
McGraw-Hill, whose lead editor is a retired
University of Toronto biochemistry professor,
Robert Murray. Murray added a paragraph to
the 2006 edition noting that although the
body can make other monosaccharides from
glucose, “there is evidence that the other sugars
may be beneficial in some circumstances
when added to the diet. This has led to the
development of glyconutrient supplements,
