I am very grateful that a friend introduced me to glyconutrients just 5 months ago. For over 20 years I have suffered from chronic neck and lower back pain. Two of my children have suffered from "full blown" asthma since early infancy. My youngest child had severe eczema to the point of bleeding. Winter months were a nightmare with bottles of oxygen lined up in my garage. I am happy to say that in the last few months I have been pain free. There has only been 1 asthma attack (and I believe this was due to the fact that we were without product for over 2 weeks) and no sign of eczema. It is so easy to get caught up in the arguments, as I have been reading in these pages, but to me the only proof I need is the healthy kids living in my home. I wouldn't go a day without them and as a single Mom of 4, that is saying a lot.
