Frequently Asked Questions
I am allergic to aloe vera. Can I use products that contain Ambrotose® complex?
Individuals with allergies or sensitivities to any ingredients in our products should always consult their personal physician before use.
Why do some of the labeled nutrients in PhytoMatrix® supplement appear to offer less Daily Value (DV) percentage than what is listed for CatalystTM tablets?
The advanced technology utilized in the formulation of PhytoMatrix caplets allows for the delivery of nutrients in a more natural food form. A more natural food source may provide greater absorption and utilization. The advanced formulation of PhytoMatrix supplement, utilizing patented technology, may allow for more nutritional benefit from smaller quantities of natural ingredients.
Why do the calcium and magnesium in PhytoMatrix® caplets have lower Daily Value (DV) percentages than the product's other minerals?
Because calcium and magnesium concentrations are limited in plant tissue, and the recommended DV of these macrominerals is several hundred milligrams each, including 100% DV of calcium and magnesium from only plant sources would require many grams of plant material. This would result in an unreasonably large serving of several large tablets and a product that would be out of the price range of many consumers. Therefore, the calcium and magnesium in PhytoMatrix® caplets have lower DV percentages than the product's other minerals.
Why is there a notation on the PhytoMatrix® label stating that dicalcium phosphate is not a preferred source of calcium?
The primary source of calcium in PhytoMatrix® caplets is red algae (Lithothamnium). However, dicalcium phosphate, an excipient used for capleting, also contributes some amount of calcium. Regulations require that we disclose this information, but Mannatech wants the consumer to know that we do not feel that it is as beneficial a form of calcium.
How do the plant-sourced minerals in PhytoMatrix® caplets differ from the Ambroglycin® complex in CatalystTM tablets?
Plant-sourced minerals may be easily absorbed and utilized. The Ambroglycin® complex is a blend of trace minerals bonded to amino acids along with Ambrotose® complex and dried herbs and vegetables. The Ambroglycin® complex was designed to closely resemble or simulate a food source. The plant technology utilized by PhytoMatrix® caplets provides minerals in an actual food form, which represents the latest advancement in mineral technology.
How do PhytoMatrix® caplets differ from CatalystTM tablets?
While CatalystTM tablets are a great vitamin/mineral product, PhytoMatrix® caplets represent a whole new class of technology that, until now, has not existed anywhere. In addition to providing an all-natural vitamin complex, PhytoMatrix® caplets utilize patented hydroponic technology to provide plant-sourced minerals in concentrated and beneficial amounts. Plant-sourced minerals may be more easily absorbed by the body. This unique feature represents a major new advancement in the technology of nutrient delivery.
How do PhytoMatrix® caplets compare with Phyt•Aloe® bulk powder and capsules?
Our PhytoMatrix® caplets are a food-sourced multivitamin/mineral/phytonutrient product containing natural ingredients. They are designed to provide essential vitamins, minerals and standardized amounts of phytonutrients. Our Phyt•Aloe® bulk powder and capsules are composed of high-quality fruit and vegetable powders, but they are not standardized. Our Phyt•Aloe® bulk powder and capsules are formulated to supplement fruit and vegetable intake, but do not provide the same vitamin, mineral and phytonutrient content as PhytoMatrix® caplets. Taking both PhytoMatrix® caplets and Phyt•Aloe® powder or capsules together may increase the benefit to your health, but one product does not replace the other.*
Can I use PhytoMatrix® multivitamin and mineral supplement in place of a prenatal vitamin?
Mannatech's PhytoMatrix® caplets have been formulated to meet the nutritional needs of the average healthy adult.* Prenatal vitamins are formulated to meet the nutritional needs of an expectant mother and her unborn child. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, have a health condition, or are planning a medical procedure, consult your health professional before use. Discontinue use and consult your doctor if any adverse reactions occur.
Do PLUSTM caplets provide hormones?
No, PLUSTM caplets do not contain any hormones, but they do provide nutrients that help support the endocrine system.*
I am allergic to many fruits and/or vegetables. Can I take Ambrotose AO® capsules?
Our Ambrotose AO® capsules contain broccoli, Brussels sprout, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, garlic, kale, onion, tomato, turnip, papaya and pineapple. If someone has a sensitivity to any of these ingredients, they should be cautioned about the use of this product. Individuals with allergies or sensitivities to any ingredients in our products should always consult their personal physician before use.
Why are antioxidants important?
Antioxidant-rich nutrients help protect your cells against the harmful effects of toxins, environmental stress, poor diet and oxidative stress. Antioxidants also act as free radical scavengers.
Can children use PhytoMatrix® multivitamin and mineral supplement?
Our PhytoMatrix caplets were formulated specifically for the needs of adults.
What is the endocrine system and why is it important?
The endocrine system is the system that maintains hormonal balance in the body. A well-functioning endocrine system helps support the body's natural recovery from physical and emotional stress and works in harmony with the body's immune system.*
What are free radicals?
Free radicals are extremely reactive particles, normally produced during metabolic processes in small amounts, which are neutralized by the body's antioxidant network. Toxins such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and herbicides on cells can create free radicals. Stress and poor food can also contribute to the creation of free radicals. Free radicals attack molecules found within the cells of the human body, which become free radicals. This chain reaction can lead to the acceleration of the aging process. Antioxidants reduce free radicals by contributing electrons to maintain cell stability.
What is hydroponic technology, and how does it affect the benefits of PhytoMatrix® multivitamin and mineral supplement?
Hydroponics is a technology for growing plants in nutrient solutions, with no other support. Traditional agricultural systems grow plants in solid forms of support such as soil, peat moss, sawdust, etc. Hydroponic techniques allow for precise water and nutrient application directly to the roots of each plant. The hydroponic process for the mineral blend in PhytoMatrix® caplets allows for controlled uptake of concentrated minerals, which can be stored in plant tissues. Food from minerals may be readily absorbed and utilized by the body. The exclusive hydroponic process utilized by Mannatech provides concentrations of essential minerals that can provide the minimum daily requirements with one daily serving (four caplets). This is very significant because even fresh fruits and vegetables, which usually have high concentrations of vitamins, may be low in essential minerals.
Can men and women use PLUS™ caplets?
Yes, men and women can use PLUS™ caplets. Our PLUS™ caplets contain healthful amino acids that both women's and men's endocrine systems can use.
What are phytonutrients, and what does "standardized phytonutrients" mean?
Phytonutrients, sometimes referred to as phytochemicals, are any chemical derived from a plant source. Many phytonutrients can have a beneficial effect on health. Standardized phytonutrients means that the ingredient is delivered using a quality controlled process so that you are ensured of receiving a consistent amount with every serving.
What is a glyconutrient?
Glyconutrients are dietary supplement ingredients containing beneficial amounts of polysaccharides. These compounds are demonstrating powerful effects on human health, particularly immune, digestive and cognitive functions. Mannatech was among the first dietary supplement companies to recognize and capitalize on glyconutrient technologies.
