THE BARE NUTRITIONAL ESSENTIALS

By Dr. Tim Jaeger, DC We basically boil down to the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Food is comprised of three macronutrients. To survive we must eat the three macronutrients found in our foods. Every one of our 600 trillion cells NEEDS these three macronutrients to function and survive. The three macronutrients are: Lipids, Proteins & Carbohydrates Every day in the human body 500 billion new cells are built to replace dying cells. The building of new cells requires the three macronutrients; otherwise life does not go on. Lipids (Fats) There are two essential fatty acids (the building blocks of fats), ten essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), and eight essential saccharides (the building blocks of carbohydrates). Essential macronutrients are NEEDED by the body; however, the body cannot synthesize or does not synthesize them in significant quantities, thus they must be supplied by our daily diet. The two essential fatty acids are linoleic acid (omega-6) and alphalinolenic acid (omega-3). Where does one get these essential fatty acids? Much of North America is deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, thus an excellent oil to use is fluxed (linseed) oil—organic, cold pressed, unrefined, and in a dark amber bottle. Flax seed oil is 58% alphalinolenic acid by composition. Flax seed oil must never be heated and one should take between 1-2 tablespoons per day with their supper meal. This will provide the two essential fatty acids that every one of

our 600 trillion cells needs to function correctly. Flax seed oil can be found in most health food stores. Proteins The ten essential amino acids are: · Histidine · Isoleucine · Leucine · Lysine · Methionine · Valine · Phenylalanine · Threonine · Tryptophan · Arginine Where does one get these essential amino acids? In industrialized countries, a deficiency of protein is rare because we are huge meat eaters, however, one excellent suggestion is to remove all the ‘horrifyingly’ unhealthy white and wheat flour products and integrate your own homemade spelt flour products—i.e. bread and pizza dough, and any processed goods that have flour as an ingredient. Spelt is over 5000 years old and is better tolerated than any other grain. Spelt is the only grain that contains mucopolysaccharides that have been shown to increase the master antioxidant of the body, glutathione, up to 50%. Spelt has more protein than wheat, and contains all ten of the essential amino acids that are needed in the daily diet to insure proper cell maintenance. Whole spelt flour can be found in most health food stores. Increasing glutathione levels is a very difficult task, with only a handful of supplements being scientifically validated to do so. Meat and eggs are usually laden with pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics, if not organic and free range, thus be wise when choosing what meats you will consume. It is possible to decrease meat and egg consumption by eating high-purine protein non-meat foods that in-

clude: bee pollen, brewer’s yeast, chlorella, Klamath Lake blue-green algae and hemp seeds. Moderatepurine protein non-meat foods include: whole ancient grains (einkorn, amaranth, quinoa, spelt, kamut and buckwheat), asparagus, cauliflower, mushrooms, peas and nuts and seeds (almonds and hazelnuts). Fermented soy products also contain substantial amounts of protein and include foods such as tempeh, miso, natto, and either tamari or shoyu soy sauce. Superfoods like Pure-Synergy, Dr. Schulze’s Superfood, and Nature’s First Food (contact Millennial Wellness) are also a good means for acquiring protein in the diet, as well as many other excellent nutrients and healing benefits. At your request, Millennial Wellness has an article written by Dr. Jaeger that we can furnish you with regarding the soy controversy and why fermented soy products should be consumed as opposed to other types of soy. Glutathione is the most valuable detoxifying agent in the body and detoxifies a vast number of pollutants, poisons and carcinogens such as: styrene, formaldehyde, many pesticides, petroleum distillates, naphthalene, heavy metals, acrolein, and benzene derivatives. We are exposed to many of these chemicals daily through the food we eat, water we drink, and air we breathe—i.e. fuel exhaust, cigarette smoke, household cleaning products, water contaminants such as arsenic and fluoride, and food contaminants such as pesticides, nitrites, hydrogenated fats and aspartame. Our constant exposure to these chemicals has created a nation that is seriously glutathione deficient. Our life depends on glutathione and we literally cannot survive without it. Glutathione is a regenerator

of immune cells and is involved in DNA synthesis and repair, as well as protein synthesis. It is obvious that glutathione is an invaluable naturally occurring protein that protects every cell, tissue, and organ from free radicals and disease. Carbohydrates From a metabolic caloric perspective there is no such thing as essential carbohydrates, meaning your body can survive without them. However, all 600 trillion cells are genetically programmed to express optimal health and if given the eight special monosaccharides (glyconutrients), they will do so. So when we speak about essential carbohydrates, we are referring to essential for optimal health and the creation of cellular words used during cellular communication, not for metabolic caloric needs. Glyconutrient products have been shown to increase the glutathione (our master antioxidant) levels by over 200%. (The Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association. Winter 1999 edition, Vol. 2, No. 1) It has only been recently realized that there are eight carbohydrates required for cell-to-cell communication. Old dogma was that carbohydrates were used only for energy; now we know otherwise. Cells do not look like a marble; rather they look more like a bur, as seen by an electron microscope image. All of the projections seen on the cell surface are the glyconutrients. Without cellular communication, disease and death occur—analogous to loss of communication during war. The eight essential (necessary) saccharides are: · Glucose · Galactose · Mannose · Xylose

these glyconutrients; it is not a choice or a decision. We have the opportunity to give our cells the benefits of mother’s milk for a lifetime. Should that be a choice? For those skeptics that are wondering if this is for real or not, there is one simple answer. In Medline search “Carbohydrate metabolism” for the years 1999-2001 and you will find over 54,000 articles – yes, your visual cortex in your occipital lobe did not deceive you, that number reads correctly. Is it really that surprising? Every one of our 600 trillion cells NEEDS these glyconutrients. They act as the Universal Code of Life, equivalent to Microsoft’s operating systems that run the computers of the world. The question is not if one can afford to use glyconutrients; it is more a question that one cannot afford not to. Glyconutrients are an absolute priority and should be for everyone; we all need them. The Celera Corporation completed the mapping of the human genome on April 6, 2000. It is estimated that 2 million bits of information can be transferred through the genes. However, what about the glycome or sugar code? It is estimated that 2 million bits multiplied by 8 (# of glyconutrients) to the power of 6 (# of attachment points) can be transferred through the glycome. That number equals 1.7 x 1043 or 17 tredecillion bits of information that can be transferred through the sugar code. What we are talking about is a revolutionary medical paradigm shift. Last year’s medical dogma is today’s medical fallacy. Condemnation before investigation of the facts is the height of arrogance. In Health and Longevity Dr. Tim Jaeger, DC

Over 40 Pharmaceutical companies are spending billions dollars per year researching how to synthetically derive these glyconutrients (saccharides). A natural substance/molecule cannot be patented. Where does one get these eight necessary saccharides (glyconutrients)? They are not in the foods we eat because our food supply has changed more in the last 40 years than in the prior 40 thousand years. The food supply now only contains two (glucose and galactose) of the eight, regardless if one eats the best organic foods or not. So, one must take them via a dietary supplement. Mannatech has the patent rights (composition-of-matter and use) to two or more of these glyconutrients in a supplement form. So, to provide the body with these eight glyconutrients one must take the Mannatech product Ambrotose. The body can manufacture the other 6 carbohydrates from glucose or galactose through an extensive process of conversions and energy exchanges. For example, it takes 38 enzymatic reactions to convert galactose to fucose. If a body happens to be stressed at all via disease or toxins from the air we breathe, water we drink, or food we eat our ability to accomplish this task is not optimal. Thus, it makes sense that the more of these special carbohydrates our cells have available, the faster and more accurately they will be able to communicate their wants and needs. Mother’s milk contains 5 of the 8 glyconutrients. Does anyone think that mother’s milk is good for us? I hope you just said YES! We need
