“The vast majority of antioxidant supplements rely on high-dose synthetic ingredients,” said Dr. Rob Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer at Mannatech. “We knew when we launched Ambrotose AO back in 2003 that a better approach would be to formulate a synergistic blend of fat- and water-soluble food-sourced antioxidant nutrients that resemble the nutrients found in a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.”
“Proof of the benefit of Ambrotose AO supplementation, as measured by increased serum oxygen radical antioxidant capacity (ORAC), has been confirmed in three human clinical trials,”1,2,3 continued Dr. Sinnott. “The product’s safety has been confirmed during these studies and by 11 years of data collected by our outstanding Safety Monitoring Program.”
