Ambrotose

Ambrotose van Mannatech is een uniek en plantaardig voedingssupplement. Advanced Ambrotose verbetert de cel tot cel communicatie, ondersteunt het immuunsysteem, verbetert de spijsvertering, de cognitieve functies en de werking van de organen. Advanced Ambrotose 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 bevat o.a. stoffen verkregen uit de Aloë Vera-plant, de Japanse zwam en boomschors. Ambrotose 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.

Ambrotose van Mannatech

 

De Advanced Ambrotose-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 ondersteunt:

    • Celcommunicatie
    • 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 bevat onderstaande essentiële suikers. De suikers zijn:

  • Mannose
  • Glucose
  • Xylose
  • Galactose
  • Fucose
  • 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. Ook krijgen we vaak de vraag of Ambrotose bijwerkingen heeft. Voor meer informatie of bestellen kunt u altijd contact met ons opnemen!

Functional

  • Aloe vera extract (inner leaf gel powder)

     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.

  • Arabinogalactan (from Larix spp. wood)

    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 considered a good source of prebiotic soluble dietary fiber 2,3. Small amounts of arabinogalactans can be found in some food plants, including corn, carrots, tomatoes, pears, wheat and red wine 4.

    A human double-blind, placebo-controlled trial indicates that intake of 1.5 grams of a larch arabinogalactan can enhance the antigenic response to a bacterial (tetanus) and viral (flu) challenges in healthy subjects 5. Both Ambrotose powders provide > 1.5 grams of this larch arabinogalactan/day.  Two human double-blind, placebo-controlled trials indicated 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) as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) (21CFR172.610).

  • Ghatti gum

    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.

    Most gums are believed to be largely degraded in the colon 2. Test tube studies have demonstrated the fermentation of ghatti gum by the beneficial human bacteria species Bifidobacterium 3,4. Ghatti gum is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is permitted for use as a food (21CFR184.1333).

  • Glucosamine HCl (vegetarian)

    Glucosamine HCl is a salt of the amino monosaccharide, glucosamine. Glucosamine is naturally found in human cartilage and in some fungi and algae 1, 2. Commercially produced glucosamine is made from shellfish or grains such as corn or wheat. Supplemental glucosamine has been used for the past 25 years in Europe 3. In the U.S., it has gained popularity as a dietary supplement.
    The amount of absorption of orally administered glucosamine through the intestines is somewhat unclear. The fraction not absorbed and incorporated into cartilage is excreted, mainly in urine 2. Glucosamine that is not absorbed through the intestine may be utilized by colonic bacteria 4, 5. There appears to be minimal concern for side effects indicated with glucosamine supplementation. Clinical studies have consistently reported that glucosamine appears safe 6.

  • Gum tragacanth comes from the stems and branches of the flowering plant Astragalus gummifer. The raw gum is made up of a mixture of two polysaccharides. Monosaccharide constituents include galactose, arabinose, xylose, fucose, rhamnose, and galacturonic acid 1. Gum tragacanth has been approved for use in pharmaceuticals in the U.S. since 1820 and in foods since 1925 2. Most gums are believed to be largely degraded in the colon 3. 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 4,5. 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).

  • Vitamin A (as beta-carotene from Blakeslea trispora fungus)

    Vitamin A, also called retinol, is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for humans. Adequate intake is important for normal vision and immune function. Dietary vitamin A can be provided as both preformed vitamin A and provitamin A carotenoids that are precursors to vitamin A. Preformed vitamin A is abundant in animal-derived foods like liver, kidney, eggs, and dairy products. Carotenoids, like beta-carotene, are found in darkly colored fruits and vegetables. Preformed vitamin A is efficiently absorbed through the intestines, while carotenoids may either be absorbed through the intestines intact or cleaved to form vitamin A prior to absorption. The proportion of beta-carotene converted to vitamin A decreases as beta-carotene intake increases, limiting the risk of vitamin A toxicity 1.

    Beta-carotene, also called provitamin A, is a member of a group of plant-produced compounds called carotenoids, which serve as precursors to vitamin A. Beta-carotene is a potent antioxidant. The ultimate source of all vitamin A is from the carotenes, and beta-carotene has the highest vitamin A activity 2. Beta-carotene is particularly abundant in orange vegetables and fruit, and may be directly added to foods as a vitamin supplement 3.
    Carotenoids may either be absorbed through the intestines intact, or be cleaved to form vitamin A prior to absorption. There is no Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for beta-carotene or other provitamin A carotenoids. However, dietary provitamin A carotenoids have vitamin A activity that can be expressed as retinol activity equivalents (RAEs). The RDA for RAEs is 900 µg/day for men and 700 µg/day for women 1. Beta-carotene supplementation in humans is likely safe over long periods of time.

    Blakeslea trispora is a fungus that can be used as a source of carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, gamma-carotene and lycopene, for dietary supplements 4,5.

  • Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) algae extract
    Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) is a type of edible brown algae that has been 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. It is used in condiments and soup bases or fresh in salads, rolls or stews for its nutritional content, flavor and texture. Undaria is also used in Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) traditional medicine 2. Undaria pinnatifida is rich in fucoidans, sulfated polysaccharides that contain large amounts of fucose and other monosaccharides, including galactose, mannose and glucose 3,4. In addition to being largely made up of soluble carbohydrates and edible protein, Undaria also contains lipids; vitamins A, C and E; B vitamins; calcium and magnesium; and some trace elements (such as iodine) 5,6.
    Undaria is partially digested in the human gut 7, and test tube studies have demonstrated that fibers from brown algae can be fermented by human fecal bacteria 8. The serum uptake of fucoidans has not been assessed to date. 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, 9.

Formulation

  • Rice starch

    Rice starch is a polysaccharide obtained from rice, Oryza sativa.  Worldwide, natural starch is an important source of energy. Humans and other animals have enzymes that are able to digest starch into its glucose components, so it can be easily digested. Rice starch is an approved food additive by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 1.

  • About Glycosylation
    • Glycosylation is the enzymatic process that attaches sugars (glycans) to proteins, lipids, or other organic molecules. These attached sugars can be structural and/or functional. In their functional role, they serve as antennae, interacting with cellular receptors and thus affecting cellular processes
    • Sugars attached to proteins (glycoproteins) serve as signals in cellular communication, thus influencing processes involved in inflammation and immunological reactions*
    • Glycosylation is a key post-translational protein modification that can significantly affect the overall biophysical and biochemical functions of proteins
    • The function of glycoproteins is profoundly affected by their component sugars
    • Modifications of glycoproteins results in changes in their structure, with ensuing modulation of molecular and cellular signaling processes. Changes in signaling processes can result in changes in cellular interactions, including those involved in immunological and inflammatory processes*
    • Sialylation of glycoproteins affects their immunogenic properties, as well as absorption, half-life and clearance*
  • About Prebiotics
    • GI tract bacteria, such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, are important for GI health*
    • GI tract bacteria decrease the growth of pathogenic bacteria and increase production of short chain fatty acids in the gut, both of which are believed to be positive for GI health. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria are bacteria known to be important for GI tract health*

    Scientists at ProDigest in collaboration with the Laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Technology (LabMET) at Ghent University, in Belgium conducted this study, the first to apply 16sRNA genes-based pyrosequencing in a Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem (SHIME) study. The pyrosequencing technique allowed the scientists to explore more deeply and confirm findings from a previous Ghent University study which showed that Advanced Ambrotose powder exhibited prebiotic effects along the entire colon.

  • Ambrotose® Powder In Vitro Prebiotic Study (2010)

    Drs. Massimo Marzorati and Sam Possemiers (University of Ghent and ProDigest, Ghent, Belgium) and their colleagues employed state‐of‐the‐art human gastrointestinal tract simulations and microbiological analyses to show that Ambrotose® complex and Advanced Ambrotose® powder exerted positive prebiotic effects.* Both products exhibited good selective fermentability throughout the entire colon and positive and selective bifidogenic effects. They also demonstrated the possibility of enhancing species belonging to Bacteroidetes, a phylum recently associated with body weight management.*

  • Ambrotose® Powder In Vitro Prebiotic Study (2007)

    Dr. John Kalns and colleagues (Hyperion Biotechnology, Inc., San Antonio, TX) conducted an in vitro study demonstrating that human fecal bacteria can partially break down Advanced Ambrotose® powder and two of its constituents (aloe vera gel polysaccharides and arabinogalactan). Bacteria identified that could best compete for these polysaccharides were Enterococcus species (a species that is a popular probiotic in some countries).
