    In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving more than 100 healthy adults, individuals who consumed Ambrotose complex powder reported numerous health and well-being benefits following 12 weeks of intake, compared with subjects taking a placebo. The study was conducted by Dr. Talitha Best, a post-doctoral research fellow at the Nutritional Physiology Research Centre, University of South Australia (UniSA), and the Brain Sciences Institute, Swinburne University of Technology, Associate Professor Eva Kemps, Flinders University, and Dr. Janet Bryan, UniSA (1). Healthy adults taking Ambrotose complex powder perceived numerous quality-of-life benefits, including some that have been confirmed by formal cognitive testing (2),(3).* Gastrointestinal effects were also among the perceived benefits reported by individuals who consumed Ambrotose complex.”
