After years of not getting any comments or emails about Mannatech or Ambrotose I got an email a few weeks ago. Rather than a sales pitch it was a take down notice on some of my posts. That is a fist. Of course I never advocated the use of the products so the emails are SPAM or script junk. If they are scripts searching the web I would have also have expected Mannatech’s Ambrotose Saved My Soul to be included in the take down notice. 😉 Against my better judgment I replied to two of these emails with no response. No doubt I will continue to get these junk emails.

For a product that could supposedly cure everything Ambrotose certainty came at a great price. Of souse they can not legally say that which had to hurt sales. What does the product do other than cure everything? Furthermore, while I am not going to take their product because I think it is junk feel free to give it a try. I do not think it will hurt you.

  1. Actually Erik, I’m so sorry for your struggles but Mannatech has never said Ambrotose cures everything. The science behind polysaccharides and monosacchrides have shown that they help establish cellular communication and with MS & Lymes disease, cellular communication is everything. You have auto immune and suppressed immune. With over 70 world wide patents, 3rd party studies and major human intervention studies and presentations at major Glycobiology symposiums, Ambrotose is one of the tools that gives the body’s ability to correct itself. However, as with anything, everyone is different. To know and learn more about why Mannatech products are not only superior to all supplements but also essential for optimal support for any situation, including the Olympic athletes, you can go to: http;//www.MannatechScience.org . Many are benefiting greatly with the use of Ambrotose and when one studies the science, then it is obvious that everyone, including those struggling should be on it.

    • I’m sorry every dealing I have had indicated it did cure almost everything and there are comments on the blog to back that.

      If I, or anyone else, was willing to take Ambrotose how long to see results? A month? A year? Until the placebo effect kicks in?!
