Mannatech®, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), a global health and wellness company committed to transforming lives to make a better world, offers the innovative nutritional supplement, Ambrotose ®, which is clinically proven to provide cognitive support for young adult functions essential for students to reach their potential in the classroom. With students preparing to go back to school, Ambrotose powder can be among the many tools available for families with high school or college-aged students seeking academic excellence.

According to human clinical trials published in peer reviewed journals, Ambrotose powders can positively impact brainwaves associated with attention in young adults and improve memory and alertness in middle-aged adults.*

The cognitive factors of focus, attention and memory are crucial for young adult students aiming for high academic achievement.

"Clinical studies conducted by independent scientists who are experts in their fields have found that Ambrotose powder gives a helpful boost in memory, focus and attention as well as providing perceived beneficial changes in well-being," said Dr. Rolando Maddela, MD, MPH, CCRP, Mannatech's Director of Clinical Research and Scientific Affairs. "For young adults who are students, Ambrotose products can be a positive addition to a comprehensive approach to academic achievement. Ambrotose may also play an important role in the overall health and wellness of students, a factor that also contributes to academic success."*

Dr. Maddela suggests that as little as four grams per day of Advanced Ambrotose ® powder or Ambrotose Complex can help support some of the factors that contribute to success in the classroom.*
