Product Information


Whilst aloe vera has long been known to be extraordinarily beneficial to the human body, no one understood what ingredients made it so effective. That is, until the 1980’s, when Mannatech scientists mined aloe vera for the unique sugar (mannose) responsible for it’s immune supporting benefits. They discovered and isolated a new class of nutrients –glyconutrients- from plant polysaccharides that help to complete the cellular alphabet of our body’s communication system. The result – Ambrotose complex.

Based on Real Food Technology solutions Ambrotose complex is an amazing and powerful daily supplement containing plant saccharides that provide your body with glyconutrients to help improve the foundation of your wellness – starting with your cells.

It is the original breakthrough Mannatech product.

What can effective communication between cells mean to your health?

Cell surface sugar structures called glycoproteins are necessary for the proper recognition and functioning of every cell. When sugars are missing from glycoprotein strutures, cells cannot function normally.

Immune system cells read the cell surface sugar structures on other cells to determine if they’re healthy, need repair or need to be destroyed. Likewise when sugars are missing from immune cell glycoproteins, the immune system cannot function normally.

What is a glyconutrient?

Glyconutrients are dietary supplement ingredients containing beneficial amounts of polysaccharides. Mannatech was among the first dietary supplement companies to recognise and capitalise on glyconutrient technologies.

When I measure out Ambrotose powder using a measuring spoon, I often get a different number of spoonfuls from one jar to the next. Why is this?

The filling of the jars is measured by weight, not volume. Because this is a natural product, there is sometimes a variation of density in the ingredients. This may affect the number of servings obtained using a teaspoon (a volume measurement) but does not change the number of servings by weight. When the product is dispensed into the containers the weight is used to determine the fill. Each jar is individually weighed during the time of dispensing, and a sampling is taken and reweighed prior to distribution of the batch. We are confident that the weight is correct.
