Has anyone out there heard anything about, used, or have a timely warning concerning a product called Ambrotose made by Mannatech? It's basically a nutrition supplement ("glyconutrients") that's supposed to improve cell communication.
I have a friend who is trying to sell me on it. He started out as a customer and now is in business with them. He says it's improved his health, allergies and stuff, and helped him to drop to a third of his dosage of Ritalin which he takes for ADD. Since Ritalin is sometimes used for CH, could the chemical processed be similar? Does this stuff have a shot at offering some improvement?
On the negative side, this stuff smells like a pyramid scheme. In his sales pitch, my friend asked if I would be interested in going into business with them, meaning I'd have to "buy in". If this stuff is legit, why do they use such a disreputable marketing scheme that has friends preying upon friends for business? They quote some impressive studies and claims for their products as this groundbreaking new technology, but the researchers all seem to be pretty partisan, mostly employed by the company! I mean I trust this friend, I think he really believes in the product and feels its made a difference for his health. And maybe it's worth a shot to try a month's supply (though boy the stuff's not cheap). Any advice?
