Mannatech Recognized for Research Showing GI Bacteria Can Break Down Complex Carbohydrates in Glyconutritional Supplements

COPPELL, Texas, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global wellness provider Mannatech, Incorporated , has received a first-place award for research indicating bacteria from the human digestive tract can break down complex carbohydrates in the company's glyconutritional supplements.

Home to nearly two-thirds of the body's immune system, the digestive tract is a biological ecosystem that is still an enigma to medical science. While it is recognized that some plant-based carbohydrates are among the best-known immune system regulators, science knows little about whether the gastrointestinal (GI) tract can assimilate some of these complex substances or, once metabolized, how these substances might exert their immune-modulating effects.

Mannatech's research showed that GI bacteria, indeed, are capable of breaking down these complex carbohydrates. Further research may lead to a better understanding of how complex carbohydrates, once metabolized by the body, can support the immune system.
