Mannatech to Celebrate 15 Years of Ambrotose Products, Introduce
Social Entrepreneurship Platform at MannaFest 2011
Annual international conference to include keynote from Dr. Benjamin Carson

COPPELL, Texas, Mar 08, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Mannatech, Incorporated(NASDAQ: MTEX), will announce new company initiatives related to its focus on health, wellness and skin care at its international conference, MannaFest SM 2011, March 10-12. The event will include a celebration of 15 years of Mannatech's flagship Ambrotose(R) products and a new platform for global social entrepreneurism.

Additionally, the leading developer and provider of nutritional supplements and skin care products based on Real Food Technology(R) solutions will launch the revolutionary GI-ProBalance(TM) product, which was specially formulated to enhance the benefits of Ambrotose products.

The synbiotic (probiotic and prebiotic) product is a great-tasting, yogurt-flavored powder packaged in convenient, portable slimsticks. It stimulates immune function, supports proper digestion and GI-tract function, while improving absorption of nutrients.*

"Mannatech has received more than 45 patents in 30 nations for technology related to Ambrotose products, which is the foundation for every great product Mannatech has developed," said Robert A. Sinnott, PhD, MNS, co-CEO and chief science officer of Mannatech. "Over the past 15 years, we have developed many proprietary technologies, but none provide more reason for our 400,000 Independent Associates around the world to succeed in selling and promoting a lifestyle of wellness than our Ambrotose products."

Continuing to expand on the philanthropic pillars the company was founded on, Mannatech will launch its new social entrepreneurship platform in efforts to help promote, aid and optimize nutrition where it is needed most across the world through Mannatech's Give for Realâ" program. The program is a unique 'donation-through-consumption' initiative designed to help combat malnutrition.

Mannatech's Real Food Technology(R) solutions-inspired PhytoBlend(TM) powder provides one of the best strategies for addressing this crisis because it is developed from food-sourced, naturally occurring ingredients chosen from those scientifically proven to best benefit the human body.

On Thursday evening, the keynote will be delivered by Dr. Benjamin Carson, the first doctor to successfully separate twins conjoined at the back of the head, the youngest director of pediatric neurosurgery in the history of Johns Hopkins Hospital, and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Dr. Carson will present the event's keynote address on the benefits he personally experienced when combining glyconutrients with standard of care medical treatments.

"Dr. Carson is both a remarkably skilled surgeon and a great philanthropist," said Sinnott. "His dedication to health and nurturing the human mind and spirit has served as a guiding inspiration for Mannatech."
