Mannatech is a research and development company in the new nutraceuticals industry. "Nutraceutical" is the term used by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine to describe "functional non-toxic plant components with scientifically validated effects."
Mannatech is the unquestioned leader, as stated in a Sept. '95 Physician's Management article, in this new $250 billion industry. They are the frontrunners because of their creation of Ambrotose® Complex, a glyco-nutritional complex product now known to be necessary for the body's cell-to-cell communication. We no longer receive these important molecules in our diet or any other nutritional supplement.
Mannatech's scientific team was awarded in 1996 with the "Top Biochemical Discovery Of The Year" for the creation of Ambrotose®, by the American Naturopathic Medical Association (ANMA)
