Drs. Chenghua Wang (Rotman Research Institute, Toronto, Canada), Joanne Szabo (University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, ARK) and Roscoe Dykman (Arkansas Children’s Nutrition Center, Little Rock, ARK) showed, in a study of 20 healthy adults, that a one tablespoon serving of Ambrotose® complex powder enhanced brainwave frequencies known to be associated with attention or alertness.* Study was at least partially funded by Mannatech.
