Ambrotose Life van Mannatech is een uniek en plantaardig voedingssupplement en verschilt van het normale Advanced Ambrotose product.
- Ambrotose Life bevat tweemaal zoveel Manapol poeder
- Ambrotose Life bevat de meest wetenschappelijk bestudeerde gemodificeerde Citruspectine op de markt, die een uitstekende bron van pectine en natriumalginaat (van kelp) biedt.
- Ambrotose LIFE bevat gestabiliseerde rijstzemelvezels in plaats van rijstzetmeel. Dit is hetzelfde type voedingsstof als in Nutriverus.
Ambrotose LIFE verbetert de cel tot cel communicatie, ondersteunt het immuunsysteem, verbetert de spijsvertering, de cognitieve functies en de werking van de organen. Ambrotose LIFE is een poeder dat u 2x daags in uw drinken doet en daarmee uw lichaam voorziet van alle 8 benodigde glycanen.
Omdat u alle glycanen tot u neemt, verbetert uw celcommunicatie en zorgt u ervoor dat uw cellen (en dus ook het immuunsysteem) weer naadloos met elkaar samenwerken. Dat gaat u merken doordat uw gezondheid met stappen merkbaar vooruit gaat op allerlei gebieden.
Ambrotose LIFE bevat o.a. stoffen verkregen uit de Aloë Vera-plant, de Japanse zwam en boomschors. Ambrotose life is de meest evenwichtige en rijke bron van glyconutrienten die ooit is aangeboden.
Het zijn de acht glycanen die onze cellen dagelijks nodig hebben om de communicatie tussen cellen optimaal te maken.
De wetenschappelijk bewezen functie van Glyconutriënten supplementen door 12 dubbelblinde placebo gecontroleerde onderzoeken uitgevoerd door een derde onafhankelijke partij:
- Ondersteunt het immuunsysteem voor betere afweer
- Ondersteunt spijsvertering functies voor goed werkende darmen en maag
- Verbetert cognitieve functies
- Verbetert geheugen, concentratie en alertheid
- Verbetert stemming en vermindert irritaties
Ambrotose LIFE van Mannatech
De Ambrotose LIFE producten van Mannatech zijn gebaseerd op een baanbrekende formule die een geavanceerde mix van sachariden bevat. Ze bevatten een combinatie van arabinogalactaan en sachariden uit aloë met Undaria pinnatifida dat rijk is aan fucoidans, of wakame, een bruin zeewier dat wordt geoogst uit de heldere wateren van Tasmanië en Patagonië. Ze bevatten meer fucoidans per portie dan alle andere Mannatech-producten.
Uit onderzoek is ook gebleken dat bètacaroteen, als natuurlijke vorm van vitamine A, de voordelen van onze Advanced Ambrotose-formule voor de ondersteuning van het immuunsysteem nog versterkt.
Cellen van het immuunsysteem hebben bijvoorbeeld als taak vast te stellen of andere cellen gezond zijn, of ze moeten worden hersteld of dat ze moeten worden vernietigd. Als suikers in de immuuncelglycoproteïne ontbreken, kan het immuunsysteem niet correct functioneren.
Onderzoek dat is gepubliceerd in de European Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2011) 65, 648–656 vermeldde dat:
“voor de eerste keer heeft de wetenschap aangetoond dat het innemen van plantpolysaccharides aanzienlijke wijzigingen in glycoproteïnenstructuren op het celoppervlak kan bewerkstelligen zonder bijwerkingen.”
Ambrotose LIFE ondersteunt:
- De werking van het immuunsysteem
- De spijsvertering
- Cognitieve functies
- Werking van organen
Volgens de Amerikaanse arts en professor dr. John Rollins zijn glyconutrients een van de belangrijkste ontdekkingen in de gezondheid van de 21e eeuw. Ambrotose Life bevat onderstaande essentiële suikers. De suikers zijn:
- n-acetyl glucosamine
- n-acetyl galactosamine
- n-acetyl neuraminezuur
Deze glycanen hechten zich aan eiwitten aan het celoppervlak en vormen dan de zogeheten suiker eiwitten. Deze noemen we ook wel glycoproteïnen. Deze glycoproteïnen zijn noodzakelijk voor het correct functioneren van de cellen. We kunnen ons voorstellen dat u op zoek bent naar ervaringen met Ambrotose LIFE. Ook krijgen we vaak de vraag of Ambrotose bijwerkingen heeft. Voor meer informatie of bestellen kunt u altijd contact met ons opnemen!

Aloe vera extract inner leaf gel powder includes Manapol®, a polysaccharide found in aloe vera gel. A unique ingredient exclusive to Mannatech, Incorporated, Manapol is extracted from fresh, washed and filtered gel by a specialized extraction method that yields insoluble fibers and stabilized, high molecular weight (MW) soluble fibers rich in long-chain mannose sugars – beta-(1-4)-acetylated polymannans. Many attribute the benefits of topically and orally-applied aloe vera gel to its polymannan content.* The MW of over 20% of Manapol is >800,000. It also contains the monosaccharide sugars glucuronic acid, glucose, galacturonic acid, xylose, galactose, glucosamine, fucose, rhamnose and arabinose, and small amounts of protein, calcium, potassium and sulfate 1,2,3.
Arabinogalactans are a class of long, densely branched high-molecular weight polysaccharides extracted for commercial uses from the bark of the Eastern and Western Larch trees, Larix larcinia and Larix occidentalis. Their monosaccharide constituents include galactose, arabinose, glucose and mannose 1. Larch arabinogalactans are an excellent source of prebiotic soluble dietary fiber 2, 3. Numerous inedible and edible plants are rich sources of arabinogalactans 3. Arabinogalactans are found in some food plants, including corn, carrots, tomatoes, pears, wheat, radishes, and red wine 3, 4.
A human randomized double blind, placebo-controlled multi-dose trial concluded that “a dose of 1.5 grams/day of a proprietary larch arabinogalactan can significantly increase the IgG antibody response to tetanus vaccine compared to placebo” in healthy subjects 5. In fact, two human double blind, placebo-controlled trials indicate that higher doses of this arabinogalactan (4.5 grams) can enhance the response to a bacterial (pneumococcal) challenge 6, 7.
Larch arabinogalactans are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)(www.FDA.gov) as generally recognized as safe (GRAS)(21CFR172.610).
Ghatti gum, a mixture of complex polysaccharides, comes from the bark of Anogeissus latifolia, a large tree native to India and Sri Lanka. Monosaccharide constituents include arabinose, galactose, mannose, xylose and glucuronic acid. Ghatti gum is used in supplements, foods, drugs and cosmetics. It contains as much as 80% soluble dietary fiber 1,2.
Most gums are believed to be largely degraded in the colon 3. Test tube studies have demonstrated the fermentation of ghatti gum by the beneficial human bacteria species Bifidobacterium 4,5. Ghatti gum is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (www.fda.gov) and is permitted for use as a food (21CFR184.1333).
Glucosamine HCl is a salt of the amino monosaccharide, glucosamine. Glucosamine exists naturally in human cartilage (the tough tissue that cushions joints) and in some fungi and algae.1,2,3,4,5 Commercially produced glucosamine is made from shellfish4,6,7 or may be produced from plant sources.8,9 Specific plants provide vegetarian sources of Glucosamine HCl. Supplemental glucosamine has been used and studied for a number of years in Europe. In the U. S., it has gained popularity as a dietary supplement.10,11 The amount of absorption of orally administered glucosamine through the intestines is somewhat unclear. Muniyappa et al. 2006 12 states: “Although the limited absorption of orally administered glucosamine is not widely acknowledged, it has long been known that the active transport of glucosamine in the small intestine does not occur.”13 Following an intravenous dose of 800 mg in humans, the fraction not metabolized (broken down, used, or absorbed) or incorporated into plasma protein was excreted, mainly in the urine.5 Glucosamine that is not absorbed through the intestine may be utilized by colonic bacteria 13,14,15. There appears to be minimal concern for some side effects (i.e. gas).3,4,7 Clinical studies have consistently reported that glucosamine seems safe.7 One study used a standard dose of oral glucosamine at 1,500 mg/day for 6 weeks 12 and the usual dosing schedule is 500 mg, three times daily in many other studies.2,5,7,10 Glucosamine hydrochloride, taken orally (by mouth) for 1 to 2 years is possibly safe for most adults, as cited by numerous studies reported from the Natural Medicines database.6 Glucosamine HCl (veggie) means that this this ingredient is manufactured without using any animal derived materials and is suitable for a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Gum tragacanth comes from the stems and branches of the flowering plant Astragalus gummifer. The raw gum is made up of two polysaccharides. Monosaccharide constituents include galactose, arabinose, xylose, fucose, rhamnose, and galacturonic acid 1,2. Gum tragacanth has been approved for use in pharmaceuticals in the U.S. since 1820 and in foods since 1925 2,3. Most gums are believed to be largely degraded in the colon 4,5. Test tube studies have demonstrated that gum tragacanth can be digested by a number of bacteria that inhabit the human colon, including the beneficial Bifidobacteria species 5,6,7. Gum tragacanth is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is commonly added to foods (21CFR184.1351).
Modified citrus pectin. Pectin is a type of polysaccharide found in the cell walls of many plants and assists in making plants rigid 1, 2. Pectin offers gel-like capabilities 1, 2. Citrus pectin is the pulp and peel of citrus fruits 3, 4. A few sources note that shorter-chain, modified citrus pectin (MCP) may be absorbed in smaller quantities due to water solubility (dissolvability) 1, 5. In the U. S., Pectin has been Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) 3.
Rice bran is made from the bran layer, underneath the hull layer of rice, Oryza sativa. The bran, or byproduct obtained while milling rice, makes up about 1/10th of the weight of rice grain 1,2 Rice bran, the outer brown layer, includes rice germ that is removed from the starchy endosperm via the milling process 1,2. Rice bran contains dietary fiber 3. Rice bran oil is a popular “healthy oil” in Asia, Japan, and especially India 3,4,5. Rice bran, as a co-product of milling, contains about 15-20% fat and 11-15% protein 6. Humans have been enjoying grain foods, including rice, for the past thousand years 7. For two-thirds of the population of the world, rice is the staple food 8. A number of studies reported in the Natural Medicines database, professional monograph on rice bran 9 show safe use in studies of up to 5 years.
Sodium alginate, the sodium salt form of alginic acid and gum, is primarily extracted from cell walls of brown algae 1. Algin is extracted from Macrocytis pyrifera, giant kelp 2. Alginates are polysaccharides 2, 3. The composition of alginate includes proportions of β-D-mannuronic acid and α-L-guluronic acid linked by 1-4 glycosidic bonds 3. Algin (sodium alginate) provides both flexibility and strength to the tissue of brown seaweed because of its gelling properties 2. For thousands of years, seaweed has been used as food for animals and humans 2. Sodium Alginate is likely safe with oral use of amounts found typically in foods 2, 4. Sodium Alginate is affirmed as GRAS for specific functional use as described in FDA (Food and Drug Administration) (21CFR184.1724) 5, 6.
Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) is a type of edible brown algae consumed for thousands of years, particularly in Asia 1. In Japanese and other Asian cultures, the ingestion of brown seaweed in the diet averages up to 3 g per day 1. Wakame use includes condiments and soup bases or fresh in salads, rolls or stews for its nutritional content, flavor and texture. Undaria is also a part of Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) traditional medicine 2.
Undaria pinnatifida is rich in fucoidans and polysaccharides that contain large amounts of fucose and other monosaccharides, including galactose, mannose and glucose 3,4. Undaria pinnatifida is largely made up of soluble (dissolvable) carbohydrates 5,6.
Undaria is partially digested in the human gut 5 and test tube studies have shown that fibers from brown algae could be fermented by human fecal bacteria 6. The serum uptake of fucoidans has been minimally assessed to date 7. Undaria pinnatifida has been consumed as a food and traditional medicine in Asia for thousands of years, indicating a safe precedence for human consumption 1,8.

- Advanced Ambrotose® powder Human Open-Label Clinical Trial (2019)
In an open-label, controlled human study conducted by Roca** et al.*** (2019), 20 participants, the active group, received a polysaccharide-based multi-ingredient supplement of 8 g/day Advanced Ambrotose® complex powder, (AA), (with Arabinogalactan, Aloe Vera extract, rice starch, ghatti gum, gum Tragacanth, Glucosamine HCl, Wakame algae extract), taken for 15 days prior to the marathon while the other 21 participants, the control group, received no supplement. Results showed that in the active group there were significant changes in salivary and systemic immunological biomarkers before as well as after the race. The authors’ findings suggest that Advanced Ambrotose may have a positive effect on immune response after a strenuous exercise.
