i found a recipe for cheap glyconutrients - a way to get all 8 simple sugars. now, Mannatech makes a big deal about the glyconutrients needing to be from vine ripened fruits & veggies, etc. but this recipe uses things like shark cartilege and kelp powder. it is an easy website to find if you just run a search on glyconutrients. the guy is not selling anything - he is trying to keep people from spending lots of money on supplements. it sounds very complicated, but is VERY interesting.
