Mannatech Science Team Attends Natural Supplements Conference
Based in La Jolla, California, the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine is devoted to developing personalized programs for the unique needs of their patients by “blending traditional medicine with evidence-based complementary therapies and advanced technology”. The Center also hosts numerous conferences devoted to providing Continuing Medical Education to healthcare professionals, including their annual Natural Supplements Conference. This conference brings together experts in the field of integrative medicine to present science-based information about dietary supplementation. Scientists are also invited to present the results of their recent research at the Conference’s poster competition. Mannatech R&D scientists presented four scientific posters at the 6th Annual Natural Supplements: An Evidence-Based Update on January 23—25, 2009. Three posters were devoted to Ambrotose® product technology and the fourth presented the results of open-label human study on Mannatech’s new supplement designed to target fat loss, OsoLean™ powder. Dr. Allyn Byars, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy at Angelo State University, San Angelo, TX, also presented a poster about Mannatech’s pre-exercise supplement, EMPACT™ sports drink.
