Mannatech, Incorporated, a global pioneer in the development of high-quality health, weight and fitness, and skin care solutions based on nutritional science, announced today that the purity of Mannatech's BounceBack(TM) capsules has been certified to show it meets their label claims for ingredients and purity by NSF International, an independent, accredited public health testing organization.
Mannatech's BounceBack formula was certified according to the NSF/ANSI 173 Dietary Supplement Standard--the only American National Standard for dietary supplements. Mannatech intends to carry the NSF certification mark on the supplement's labels and promotional materials to demonstrate compliance.
To date, Mannatech has eight additional products certified by NSF including Ambrotose(R) complex powder and capsules, Advanced Ambrotose(R) powder and capsules, Ambrotose AO(R) capsules, Optimal Support Packets, PLUS(TM) caplets and PhytoMatrix(R) caplets.
"Consumers today are insisting on access to high quality products with proven safety and performance," said Dr. Robert Sinnott, chief science officer for Mannatech. "In order to meet that demand, Mannatech is committed to producing the highest standards of product quality and science. Not only have we earned NSF certification, but we ensure all of our manufacturing partners adhere to current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), our industry's standards for ensuring high quality products."
A 2008 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover human study indicated that Mannatech's BounceBack capsules when taken over time significantly reduce muscle soreness after overexertion.*+ The results, published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, complement the already established benefits of BounceBack capsules in reducing soreness and stiffness from physical activity, in addition to supporting optimal joint and cartilage health.*+
NSF International--a not-for-profit, public health certification organization--ensures a product's label reflects the contents of the supplement, that all ingredients are openly disclosed on the label and that the product's purity is acceptable. Additionally, NSF assesses each manufacturing site to ensure it complies with GMPs; NSF will not certify a product unless the manufacturer meets all of the rigorous audit requirements.
+ Allow 4 to 6 weeks for optimal benefits.
*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
"By obtaining certification for BounceBack capsules, Mannatech continues to demonstrate its dedication and commitment to excellence," said Ed Wyszumiala, general manager of NSF international's dietary supplements programs.
Mannatech will continue working with NSF to certify additional products in Mannatech's portfolio.
