The Mannatech Story

Celebrating a Quarter Century as The Science Company

The Quest for Acemannan

In the early 1990s, a scientist studying the active agent in Aloe vera knew he’d made a ground-breaking discovery. His findings concluded the gel in the Aloe plant, revered for centuries for its health and beauty benefits, contained the long-chain polysaccharide mannose. When it comes to nutrition, polysaccharides play an enormous role in the function of the human body.*

The scientist began imagining the immense possibilities for Aloe as a means to improve our health and nutrition — and he was right. He worked to isolate mannose, the key polysaccharide which sets Aloe apart from other plants, and developed the compound Acemannan.

Acemannan provides far more than just energy — it helps support the immune system and digestion, helps improve cognitive function and mood and provides important nutrients to support our overall health and well-being in significant ways.*

The scientist revealed his findings to business leaders who recognized the enormous health benefits of Acemannan, and they formed Mannatech — to harness the vast healing powers of Aloe.* Investing millions in research and development, Mannatech secured the rights to the perfected, proprietary formula for Manapol® powder, a product containing 100% Acemannan, as the basis for many products.

A Pioneer in Glyconutrition

In 1995, Mannatech launched Ambrotose Complex® — the flagship product, a glyconutrient supplement made with a potent blend of Manapol powder and several other plant-based ingredients. Ambrotose Complex rapidly gained notoriety for its amazing cell-to-cell communication* and, seemingly overnight, was embraced by millions and gained world-wide acclaim for its health benefits. Mannatech emerged as the pioneer in Glyconutrition, a branch of science now widely accepted by the scientific community.*

Worldwide Acclaim for Our Products

Today, Mannatech enjoys an exclusive partnership with Natural Aloe de Costa Rica (NACR), a manufacturer of premium Aloe products in Costa Rica, that cultivates a superior Aloe vera plant. Mannatech and NACR perfected the processes to ensure Manapol contains the most potent form of Acemannan. Well-known for its arid climate and rich volcanic soil, Costa Rica grows the best Aloe on the planet and the company produces the purest Acemannan known to man.*

At Mannatech, science continues to remain at the forefront. We continue investing in scientific studies and testing to substantiate the efficacy of our products. Throughout our history, Mannatech has obtained protection for technology relating to our proprietary formulas by securing more than 140 patents in numerous countries around the world.

Exclusive to Mannatech, Manapol is the only commercially available 100% Aloe product that meets the scientifically approved molecular weight definition of 1-2 million Daltons to be true Acemannan as set forth by Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) and American Medical Association’s United States Adopted Names Council (USAN). While other companies claim their products contain Acemannan, no other product meets the molecular grade definition. Mannatech is the only company in the world with true Acemannan.

What People Are Saying


“It’s a quality of life that is so empowering, you just can’t help but want to be a part of it.”

– John T., Mannatech Associate


“It’s remarkable to see people’s lives completely change. And when I saw that kind of commitment, that kind of dedication, I could put into someone’s life to help them for the better, I knew I would love this company. Because that’s what this company’s all about—and it’s fantastic.”

The Power of Mannatech Patents

What sets Mannatech apart from other health and wellness companies? In a word: patents. In the past 25 years, more than 140 patents have been issued to Mannatech; currently, Mannatech holds more than 90 patents with several more pending, making the company unique in the industry.

In fact, most companies in the nutritional and health and direct selling industry can boast of few, if any, patents. This means the science and product validation behind patents places Mannatech far above the competition.

Dr. Nugent Explains The Power of Patents

Mannatech has made significant investments to protect their products from theft or forgery and provide consumers with products that are unique and scientifically proven.

M5M’s Mission

To help fight global malnutrition by nourishing children around the world. We begin to accomplish this by helping children in need receive proper nutrition through our products.

Since 2009, Mannatech’s programs have generated over 122 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children. Our goal each year is to provide over 20 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children.

The Truth

According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, roughly 100 million children in developing countries are underweight and over 150 million are malnourished.

Undernutrition can hinder brain development, reduce intellectual capacity and stunt growth. Malnutrition impacts the lives of 55 million children at any given moment.

Feeding vs. Nourishing

Current food programs designed to help children are mainly cereal-based and lack many of the nutrients they need. In fact, fortified, blended flours no longer meet the minimum nutritional criteria for young children set by experts at the World Health Organization. In other words, just filling a child’s stomach not only fails to correct the issue, but it serves as a temporary fix to a much bigger problem.


With EVERY product purchase, a donation is made to the M5M℠ Foundation which is used to buy and supply nutrient-rich PhytoBlend to children in need.

The Nutrients They Need

A healthy blend of vitamins and minerals is important for children. However, the foods being given to those in underdeveloped countries is typically not meeting the minimum nutritional criteria. That’s why Mannatech created PhytoBlend™ powder to provide the best variety of nutrients through a trusted and reliable source.

  • It contains over 20 vitamins and minerals to help promote and maintain good health and vitality.
  • It’s suitable for vegetarians. None of the ingredients in the formula are obtained from animal sources.
  • Served in a powder form, it can easily be added to a variety of foods such as soups, rice and porridge, making it ideal for large feeding programs.
