Ambrotose® Powder Makes a Difference!
Your immune system is influenced more by your environment than by your genes.
Have you ever wondered if some of your friends were born with stronger immune systems than the one you inherited? Many of the best minds in human immunology have been puzzling over that question for decades! That is, which more strongly determines whether or not we have strong, healthy human immune systems, our genes or our environment?
An international team of scientists recently took a giant step forward in answering this question. Employing one of the most complete analyses of human immune function ever conducted, they examined immune cell populations and their chemical messengers in 105 sets of healthy twins before and after they received a flu shot (1). They found that the twins’ genetics had little influence on how well they responded to the vaccine. Instead, over 75% of their response was shaped by environmental factors — such as previous exposure to pathogens, nutritional factors, etc .
Mannatech has long believed in the importance of high quality nutrition to support good health. This exciting study makes it clear that, regarding healthy immune system function, being proactive and adopting a healthy lifestyle can make a big difference. And, Mannatech has an outstanding product to support healthy immune system function. Based on a gold-standard double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trial, regular intake of Ambrotose powder, as recommended on product labels, can enhance people’s response to vaccinations (2).*
