Arabinogalactan – A Key Ingredient in Ambrotose® Powder

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Arabinogalactan is a word you don’t come across too often. It’s a mouthful — in more ways than one. Arabinogalactans are healthful polysaccharides and a very important ingredient in Mannatech’s Ambrotose® supplement.

Polysaccharides, also known as glyconutrients, play critical roles in supporting and maintaining health and the immune system. Ambrotose complex includes patented technology and a blend of these plant-sourced polysaccharides. Ambrotose complex recognizes that your body is made up of cells, which when kept healthy, contribute to healthy bodies.*

Immune-Enhancing Properties

Three recent gold standard, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials have shown that Larch arabinogalactan can stimulate the adaptive immune system. Animal and human studies using arabinogalactans have demonstrated this polysaccharide’s ability to stimulate the immune system and promote gastrointestinal health.

Our arabinogalactan is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). A double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trial indicates that intake of Mannatech’s arabinogalactan at a dose relevant to Mannatech’s Ambrotose powder products for 60 days improved immune system function.1 *

Arabinogalactan in Nature

Small amounts of arabinogalactan are present in many foods, including wheat flour, soybeans, grapes, carrots, radishes, leek seeds, tomatoes, red wine, sorghum and coconut meat and milk. The following immune-enhancing plants, such as:

Echinacea purpurea (below)


and Curucuma longa, (below)

(Curcuma longa)+1

… also contain arabinogalactan. Mannatech’s arabinogalactan is sourced primarily from the wild tamarack (larch) tree. And, you can appreciate that the company that manufactures our arabinogalactan is committed to sustainable business practices. Harvesting is done to minimize impact on the environment and the wood chips used to extract the arabinogalactan are sold back into the market for use as mulch and playground covering.
