What Are Essential Sugars and Why Are They Essential?

Essential sugars, or ‘good sugars’ as they are also known, are the necessary carbohydrates, the glyconutrients that we get from nutritious fruits and vegetables.

They are also known as Biological Sugars, Saccharides, and Mono-saccharides.
Glyconutrients are part of an even broader category known as Nutraceuticals.

The words nutrition and pharmaceuticals are combined in this word because they are food-based substances that have a pharmacological effect on the body.

The eight essential sugars are actually necessary for our health and proper cell functioning.  All eight of them are required for our cells to interact and function properly.
