Frequently asked questionsIf you have questions, we've got answers
- What are Glyconutrients?
Simply put, they are specialized ingredients derived from plants and aloe that provide targeted nourishment for your cells. There are trillions of cells in your body that talk to each other, but environmental toxins, age and bad eating habits can make it harder for them to communicate. This can lead to suboptimal health, which is why Mannatech, the innovator and pioneer of Glyconutrients, continues to cultivate this incredible technology so your body can do amazing things.*
- I’m allergic to aloe vera. Can I use products that contains this?
Mannatech’s products contain aloe vera gel powders. Individuals with allergies or sensitivities to any ingredients in our products should always consult their personal physician before use.
- Is it okay to mix Mannatech products in hot liquids?
Yes, Mannatechs produc powder can be added, just before serving, to hot liquids, such as soups or teas. For maximum effectiveness the recommended serving of Ambrotose powder should be consumed.
- What is Manapol powder, and why is it important?
Manapol powder is the highest-quality aloe ingredient on the planet. It’s a pure, 100% aloe vera gel extract, with no additives or common allergens that’s not just an important Glyconutrient, but the very Glyconutrient upon which Mannatech was built.
- I eat healthy, exercise regularly and take supplements, where do I need Mannatech for?
Keep it up! The only thing you do not get enough in your diet are the ten glycans or also called essential sugars. In addition, the vitamins you probably buy could be synthetic. Why choose for someting that is not Real-Food?
- Why is not for sale at the local store?
Mannatech tried that when starting out in 1993. The problem was that not many people understand why our body needs glycans. There are not many people who will listen to a 30 minute presentation explaning why we need glycans and therefore Mannatech has chosen a different business model, which is called Network Marketing. If you don’t like to register to buy products, please use our Mannatech Webshop to buy products without registering.
- What about skin care?
The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Mannatech has introduced Glyconutrients in skin care products and these can be found at the Mannatech Uth page.
- Why do the products have these prices?
Millions are invested in research to move along with the latest scientific breakthroughs. In order to standardize the plant nutrition, a costly process is used to make your product. As an example: Mannose (one of the 10 glycans) is a glycan which is mainly extracted from the aloe-vera gel. To make one kilo Mannose we need 642 kilos Aloe Vera leaves. But to have absolutely no financial risk, you get 90 days (the U.S. market 180 days!) 100% satisfaction guarantee (not on products in the Mannatech webshop).
- Why does my doctor does not recommend this?
Well, has your docter gave you a recepi for your diner last night? Obious he has not! The docter does not advise you on your food. And that is what Mannatech is all about. The products are food.
- What is network marketing? Is that multi level marketing? Is this a pyramid scheme?
MLM or multi level marketing means nothing less than that it is sold through independent distributors. Mannatech gives all the money that is normally available for marketing, stores and physical warehouses to the people who sell it effectively. This way of doing business you call multi level marketing.
- Can you take an overdose of food supplements?
Just as it is not healthy for your body to eat 20 bananas in a day it is not wise to eat more of the food supplements than our experts tell you on the label. On the other hand, it is not a drug and has been tested LD50.
