Mannatech’s glyconutrients are proprietary blends of plant saccharides that include sources of, or precursors to, sugars used in the body for glycoprotein synthesis. Glycoproteins, which serve numerous biological functions, are critically important for cellular communication. The sugars (monosaccharides) contained in glycoproteins are galactose, glucose, mannose, fucose, xylose, N-acetylneuraminic acid,
N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetylgalactosamine. Mannatech’s Ambrotose products are available in two formulations: classic Ambrotose complex® and Advanced Ambrotose® products. Sources of sugars in both products include pure aloe vera gel, arabinogalactan, gum ghatti, and gum tragacanth. Advanced Ambrotose products also contain fucoidans from the brown alga, Undaria pinnatifida. Shown to support cellular communication, cognitive and gastrointestinal health, more than 50 patents have been issued for technology related to Ambrotose products.
