Why is it that so few diet products are backed by science? Let’s see if Mannatech is one of the good companies. We look at supplement ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer service quality. We searched for user experiences, though we only found a few. Then, we gathered and summarized to give you the bottom line.
What is Mannatech?
First off, Mannatech is a company that sells supplements, skincare, targeted health and home items. Using the products is supposed to curb appetite, fight fat and increase energy. Customers will have to check out the labels to see just how to take each formula.
Mannatech, an MLM company, purchased the official website in 1999 – that’s ages in this business. You cannot order online unless you have a reseller’s “number”. There is also the option of calling the customer service department. We like that supplements seem to cover every need in weight-loss, but read on…
Ordering – “Not Today”
The first issue we feel needs attention is difficulty ordering Mannatech products. “In order to buy anything you have to locate a “number” from the person who referred you to the company,” says our Research Editor. “Isn’t that an inconvenience for the dieter?”
According to the official website, “I don’t know my friend’s account number. Now what? You’ll need the number so we can make sure you’re connected to the friend who referred you. So all you have to do is get his/her number, come back to this page.”
Results – “Not for Every User”
There are both positive and negative reviews out there for Mannatech products. We were only able to find a few because you can’t order outside of the official website.
“The placebo affect is in full force with people who claim these great results with this product,” one person said.
Another user didn’t agree, “I can see my health condition has been improved.”
After years of dedicated research, we’ve found it’s the smallest of things, like only finding a few reviews, that can ruin your chances of success. If Mannatech is relatively unknown, the dieter may just take their money and spend in on a clinically tested supplement.
The Science – “Any Validity?”
If you’re looking for Mannatech to provide you with clinical research, you’ll be there a while. The official website offers too little information as it is, let alone specifics like that. We couldn’t even find the complete list of ingredients without first downloading a file. Here at DietSpotlight we want science to back up a product line’s claims. This company doesn’t give us that.
The Bottom Line – Does Mannatech Work?
Have we decided to find a Mannatech reseller? Well, we like that the website is clean and easy to navigate and the line does cover appetite and metabolism, but we are hesitant to give the green light. You can’t buy directly from the company, which makes it extremely difficult for the dieter. Also, we found reports that some of the products didn’t work as claimed.
If the time’s come to shed those extra pounds, we suggest trying out a supplement that’s clinically tested from a company that allows you to purchase direct – without a middle man.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The label shows four ingredients and we found all in published clinical testing. The reviews across the web show some amazing results and there are few, if any, side effects to worry about.
Plus, we like that the makers of Leptigen are confident enough to offer a Special Trial Offer.
