Foreword
Lack of knowledge has caused millions to perish since the beginning of time. The Romans prided themselves with their sophisticated aquifer system, but had no idea that the lead pipes would cause them to go mad. The British Navy (Limeys) conquered the seas with the knowledge that vitamin C in limes and lemons cured scurvy while other seamen perished. Today, diabetes and its complications are epidemic because of the results of sugar damage. Most sugars and sweeteners consumed by Westerners lower the quality of health and contribute to obesity, diabetes, and other diseases. Again, people are perishing from lack of knowledge. Contrary to common thought, sugars are unique and functional beyond just supplying energy to your body. Some sugars are beneficial in their function while many are harmful in their effect on the body. The function of some specific sugars is to actually make up the Operating System (OS) of your whole body. The really good sugars, which I call Royal Sugars or Smart Sugars, as discussed in this book, can actually help modulate your immune system and balance your hormones. The purpose of this little book is to open up to you the whole new world of sugars. You will soon have the basic knowledge on how to better stabilize your blood sugar, improve your immune system and give yourself a better quality of life. Lack of knowledge was the failure of the past. Lack of action will be the failure of the future. Today, we can take action on the vast knowledge we have available. Your first step of action is to change the sugar in your sugar bowl.

Chapter One

Many experts are saying that this is the first generation that is not expected to live as long as their parents or be as healthy as their parents. This is an alarming fact! The results of overused table sugar, and worse yet, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are manifesting in people of all ages. Sadly, this manifestation is becoming evident most conspicuously in our children. Now, diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and arteriosclerosis (coronary-artery disease), once thought of as old age diseases, are appearing in our children in unprecedented numbers. The purpose of this book is to inform you that there are actually sugars that can be good for you and to give you hope that you can improve your health by simply changing the type of sugar that is in your sugar bowl. You are about to learn about the many documented harmful side effects of regular table sugar and the disease connections between regular table sugar and health challenges. There are some 145 documented harmful side effects of regular table sugar and the disease connections between sucrose (table sugar) and health challenges. These will be covered in more detail in Chapter Two. How we eat and exercise our bodies are huge contributing factors in becoming healthy and staying well. The earlier in life we establish good habits, the better long-term quality of life we can expect to have for our children and for ourselves. It is our desire to show you that an important big step forward is changing the sugar you are now using to a sugar that has proven to be so beneficial to every cell in the body that it is called a super sugar. Most people do not yet know about the class of super sugars that I call Royal Sugars or Smart Sugars. I call them Smart Sugars because

these sugars actually improve brain function. The Endowment for Medical Research has had two peer-reviewed papers published of Pilot Surveyed groups of Alzheimers patients documenting significantly improved brain function. Researchers are giving this class of super sugars serious exploration. Glycomics is the field of study that encompasses super sugars. I will give you the names of the ones that have been identified in a moment. More physicians are beginning to incorporate these sugars into their practice while drug companies are rushing to synthesize these sugars into new drugs. There are more than 150,000 patents that have been issued related to super sugars, and two-thirds of these have been just since 1995. Super sugars are evidence-based and the results are in the facts. The facts that have emerged from research are nothing short of amazing, but we want you to decide for yourself. Are there obvious benefits and results, or are these super sugars really just worthless sugar pills? We are aware of a small but growing number of very significant super sugars. Eight of these were presented by Robert K. Murray, MD, PhD, and published in multiple editions of Harpers Biochemistry textbook used in university medical schools. The reason these are, indeed, super sugars, is not only their efficacy individually but the fact that scientists have discovered that they work remarkably well together. Together they strengthen the cell and cell membrane so the cell can become proficient with other cells to form your whole neurological communication and motor system. That is vital functionality. In short, without these super sugars, you would have no quality of life. Some scientists debate that your body can produce all of these sugars without ingesting them if you have only glucose in your body to start with.

Chapter One

Natural vital sugars in the foods our forefathers ate have been processed out of our modern diet. Even raw foods are more nutritionally depleted than they were for your grandfather. It is theoretically correct that your body could manufacture the other sugars from one or more of the super sugars if they were in our bodies. It is a fact, however, that while your body has the potential ability to manufacture them, your body does not manufacture enough of them because of the time and energy required for the enzymatic gymnastics necessary to make it happen. Most of the super sugars are vital for building the communication system and the strength of your cells. Following is a list of significant sugars (or precursors). Some of these sugars can be purchased for supplementation. A more exhaustive study of these sugars can be found in my other books, Expand Your Mind - Improve Your Brain, Trehalose Handbook - Vol. I, II, and III, and Smart Sugars. fucose (not to be confused with fructose) l-fucose GDP-fucose galactose galactosamine glucose glucosamine mannose GDP-mannose GDP-alpha-D-mannose n-acetylgalactosamine xylose n-acetylglucosamine trehalose n-acetyl-d-galactosamine rhamnose l-rhamnose melibiose sialyllactose n-acetylneuraminic acid lactose ribose D-ribose These sugars and their benefits are still under investigation. University glycomics research is ongoing around the world and The Endowment for Medical Research has supplied the sugar trehalose to Universities or research labs for their research in five countries.

Chapter One

New glycomic discoveries are popping up like popcorn in university studies all over the world. Glycobiology, during the last two decades, has concluded that glycoproteins are the cellular communication system of the body, the Operating System (OS). Glycoproteins cover the surface of cells while glycolipids are part of the interior system of the cell. There is evidence that trehalose is the sugar used to build unique glycolipids. Trehalose is the building block in a number of cell wall glycolipids. Trehalose is probably easiest to use of all of the above sugars. Trehalose is easy to use because: It does not require anything other than changing what is in your sugar bowl. It looks like regular table sugar. It pours better than regular table sugar in humidity up to 94%. While not as sweet, trehalose is delicious with no aftertaste. The news is just starting to get out about these healthy sugars and you are among the first to know. Most people would love to make simple changes in their diets that do not require extreme major effort while still rewarding them with beneficial results. Discovering that the simple changing of your table sugar could help you improve your long-term wellness and that of your children and grandchildren is exciting. Now that you have been introduced to the concept of healthy sugars, we believe you will want to find out more about how to do this. We will be offering you additional free articles that will educate you further about super sugars and how they can help you fight the effects of premature aging and the challenges we face from a toxic planet.

Sherlock Holmes cleverly observed, There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. Well, we may have just discovered something wonderful from what has been right under our noses for a long time..... cinnamon! Most people love the aroma and flavor of the spice, cinnamon. Already there are a number of major health studies that show impressive benefits and one study found that simply smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory. Infection is a major culprit in death and diseases. Some studies show that this discovery right under our noses has shown the ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infection. When added to other foods, cinnamon inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making cinnamon a natural food protectant. Consuming cinnamon is proven safe and effective. The USDA published a study showing that it reduces the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells. Researchers at Kansas State University found that cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices. Cinnamon is also a great source of phytonutrient manganese, iron, and calcium as well as fiber. Studies have shown that just teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL (the bad kind) cholesterol. Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes. It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood. In a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month. I was so impressed with the health benefits of Ceylon cinnamon that I knew that a remarkable health product could be formulated. So, I blended the health benefits and sweetness of Trehalose with the

Ceylon cinnamon and then folded into the mixture bio-available ionic multi-trace minerals in a fulvic acid phytochemical compound which also has impressive health benefits. Thus, was created T/C+. The Endowment for Medical Research, Inc, which sponsored this book, is conducting a self-funding (matched funding) T/C+ Six Month Pilot Survey to gather Evaluation Form Questionnaires from participants. Information and instructions are available on the website http://www.endowmentmed.org/content/view/1164 . Trehalose/Cinnamon can change your life and is one of the most healthful spices in your kitchen. But, caution, Ceylon cinnamon is the only true cinnamon. It has a sweet taste and is more expensive. Most cinnamon sold in supermarkets in North America comes from a less expensive variety of cinnamon or cassia which is similar but is rather pungent and contains the toxin coumarin which can cause potential damage to the kidneys and liver. True cinnamon is yet generally unknown in US grocery stores. Combine Ceylon cinnamon with the sugar trehalose and you have two amazing ingredients for your healths future. Besides that, T/C+ is so delicious that you will want to sprinkle it on your toast, put it in your coffee or tea, on your salads and desserts. It doesnt matter HOW you get it into your stomach as long as teaspoon of Ceylon cinnamon makes it there each day. You are probably saying, Why didnt I know this before!? Here is a brief Abstract of a study entitled: Cinnamon Improves Glucose and Lipids of People With Type 2 Diabetes. The objective of this study was to determine whether cinnamon improves blood glucose, triglyceride, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

Groups 1, 2, and 3 consumed 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon daily, respectively, and groups 4, 5, and 6 were given placebo capsules corresponding to the number of capsules consumed for the three levels of cinnamon. The cinnamon was consumed for 40 days followed by a 20-day washout period. RESULTS After 40 days, all three levels of cinnamon reduced the mean fasting serum glucose (1829%), triglyceride (2330%), LDL cholesterol (727%), and total cholesterol (1226%) levels; no significant changes were noted in the placebo groups. Changes in HDL cholesterol were not significant. CONCLUSIONS The results of this study demonstrate that intake of 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon per day reduces serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes and suggest that the inclusion of cinnamon in the diet of people with type 2 diabetes will reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Heart attacks may happen when platelets stick together and clump. Studies show that cinnamon may prevent this type of clotting by slowing the release of arachidonic acid from the platelet membranes, which is the cause for internal clotting and inflammation. Studies show cinnamon has aromatic benefits and simply smelling cinnamon causes brain function to temporarily improve, improving cognitive reasoning, helping the subjects to perform better on tests. My wife and I enjoy a delightful slice of whole wheat or multi-grain toast buttered and sprinkled with T/C+. You can enjoy this with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

Serving Suggestions for using T/C+ to make it enjoyable to eat the recommended amount each day for the T/C+ Pilot Survey.
This is the Pilot Survey protocol designed for the participant to enjoy. Use enough T/C+ to flavor for best enjoyment. For best results it is recommended for most people to consume 2 Tablespoons per day; BUT, it is very important to eat at least 1 Tablespoon. So enjoy the amount that you believe is best for you. Even a smaller amount is much better than none. Enjoy T/C+ on toast and on your cereal. Here are great ways of enjoying T/C+: Enrich apple butter or apple sauce by stirring T/C+ into it. T/C+ improves oatmeal, Cream of W heat, Malt-OMeal, and other hot cereals. Sprinkle it on your ice cream or whipping cream. Sprinkle it on your pancakes and waffles. Sprinkle on your salad. Make mouth-watering fruit pies baked with T/C+ instead of regular sugar. Or, take any ready-made apple pie and sprinkle lots of T/C+ on top. Add to pears, rhubarb, puddings, and custards. Add to your hot chocolate or in your coffee. Be creative and please share your recipes with us. You can post your recipes directly onto our Sugar Science Forum at http://forum.endowmentmed.org/index.php under the category Using Trehalose - Recipes and Results. In preparing for the International T/C+ Pilot Survey, I wanted to discover some of the best ways for eating one Tablespoon of T/C+ per day. This has been a challenge for some participants and difficult for them to remain in compliance. W hile a number of suggestions are posted on our website, my favorite recipe is to blend T/C+ into a small bowl of apple sauce. It gives it a wonderful taste a little milder than apple butter. You may not want it every day but I really like it. Best, of course, when you use organic apple sauce. Stay away from the apple sauce that has high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or other harmful sweeteners. With T/C+ apple sauce, you get your apple a day plus ingredients that are proven to be some of most healthful foods you can eat. Let us know any health improvements you have.
[Warning: T/C+ does not mix well in liquids without additional stirring.]

Astounding Studies on Sugars and Cinnamon

Chapter Four

In the previous chapter, Giving Sugar an Aroma of Pure Health, I discussed the recent research studies in leukemia, other cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, LDL cholesterol, cognitive function and memory improvement. Improper sugar metabolism is a major contributor of diabetes and other diseases. The USDA tested 49 herbs, spices and medicinal plants for their phytonutrient effects on glucose metabolism. The results were published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. The study shows that methylhydroxychalcone polymer, an active ingredient in cinnamon, increases cellular glucose uptake and signals certain cells to turn glucose into glycogen, preventing diabetes. This research suggests cinnamon plays a role in glucose metabolism and blood pressure regulation. Other studies published in Diabetic Care show cinnamon not only helps control blood sugar levels but also triglycerides, total cholesterol and the bad LDL cholesterol in those with type II diabetes. It has been reported that a group of polyphenolic polymers found in cinnamon may function as antioxidants to potentiate insulin action, and therefore, may also be beneficial in the control of glucose intolerance and diabetes. Other papers indicate there are beneficial effects of cinnamon proanthocyanidins on the formation of specific advanced glycation. Proanthocyanidins are oligomers and polymers of flavans. We know from studies that proanthocyanidins suppress production of the protein endothelin-1 that constricts blood vessels. These studies give us evidence supporting the French Paradox that the intake of similar phytochemical proanthocyanidins and other flavonoids from red wines prevent a higher rate of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes in their citizens on high-fat diets. It also appears that proanthocyanidin activity plays a role in the stabilization

of collagen and maintenance of elastin two critical proteins in connective tissue that support organs, joints, blood vessels, and muscle.
Glossary: Flavonoids (or bioflavonoids): plant metabolite coloration pigments; French Paradox: Two French doctors (forgive the attempt at humor) or the observation that French people suffer a relatively low incidence of coronary heart disease, despite having a diet relatively rich in saturated fats; Glycation: The result of the bonding of a protein or lipid molecule with a sugar molecule. Formation and accumulation of advanced glycation has been implicated in the progression of age-related diseases; Oligomers: protein subunits; Polyphenolic: Phenolic acids are plant metabolites. Recent interest in phenolic acids stems from their potential protective role against oxidative damage diseases (coronary heart disease, stroke, and cancers); Proanthocyanidins are a class of polyphenols that provide cell protection and have flavor. They are more potent than vitamin C or vitamin E.; USDA: United States Department of Agriculture Sources: The Endowment for Medical Research, Inc. http://endowmentmed.org http://www.thermo.com/eThermo/CMA/PDFs/Various/File_1818.pdf http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20476737 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2806462/ http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/pr/2010/100824.htm http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/26/12/3215.abstract

"The human body heals itself and nutrition provides the resources to accomplish the task."
Roger W illiam s Ph.D. (1971) Roger W illiam s was a pioneer in Biochem istry, Nutrition, Biochem ical Individuality, and Public Education. He was a professor at The University of Texas at Austin from 1939 to 1986. After his discovery of vitamin B (pantothenic acid) he turned m uch of his attention to educating the public and the m edical profession about the im portance of nutrition and biochem ical. Author of nearly 300 articles and 21 books include Nutrition Against Disease, Biochemical Individuality, The W onderful W orld W ithin You, and The Prevention of Alcoholism. He inspired the explosion of nutrition research, and influenced prom inent leaders such Linus Pauling, W ayne Jonas (form er director, NIH Office of Alternative Medicine) and m any others. He once said, "Nutrition is for real people. Statistical humans are of little interest."

"The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition."

Som e sources contribute this quote to Suprem e Court Justice Oliver W endell Holm es, MD. That is an incorrect credit since there never was a Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, M D. Oliver W endell Holm es, Sr., M.D. (August 29, 1809 October 7, 1894) was a Christian Puritan, a physician, professor, lecturer, and author.

He is recognized as an important medical reformer. He coined the word anesthesia. From 1847 - 1853, he was Dean of the Harvard Medical School and remained professor there until 1870.
His son, Oliver W endell Holm es, Jr. (March 8, 1841 March 6, 1935) was an Am erican jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Suprem e Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932 and wrote THE COMMON LAW and other well know legal writings. It was Oliver W endell Holm es, Sr., M.D. who apparently is author of the quote.
