COPPELL, Texas -- July 11, 2013

Mannatech, Incorporated  (NASDAQ: MTEX), the leading innovator and provider of
nutritional supplements based on Real Food Technology^® solutions, announced
its plans to support its Mission 5 Million movement by completely
transitioning its business into a Social Entrepreneurship model at its
national MannaQuest℠ Branson event on August 30, 2013. Mission 5 Million, or
M5M, represents Mannatech’s mission to link five million consumers of its
glyconutrient, food-based nutritional supplements with five million children
in need. As a Social Entrepreneurship company, Mannatech has created a
nutritional supplement powder specifically designed to help in the fight
against global malnutrition. Anytime a consumer purchases a Mannatech product,
a donation of nutritional supplementation is provided for a child in need.

According to the World Health Organization, about one third of all child
deaths are linked to malnutrition. Since 2010, Mannatech has donated more than
12 million servings of its PhytoBlend™ powder in 15 different countries
through its original Give for Real^® program. Building on this foundation, the
launch of M5M is a bold, mission-driven shift to focus Mannatech’s business
model and further undergird its core values and corporate vision. Mannatech is
the first Social Entrepreneurship company offering a leverage-based incentive
program for those who enlist to champion its cause.

The official transition will take place on August 30, 2013 at Mannatech’s
national MannaQuest event in Branson, Missouri. Many Mannatech corporate and
field speakers, as well as some special featured speakers soon to be
announced, will highlight the event. Extended presentations and training
regarding the company’s programs and products will also be featured at the

"I am honored to serve this great company as we take this giant step forward,”
said Bo Short, President of Business and Field Development. “Being able to
financially reward people that champion our cause enables us to accelerate our
mission to achieve an even greater impact. The ability to change YOUR world
and THE world at the exact same time is a powerful and significant paradigm."

Dr. Robert Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer, added, “Mannatech has
always been a company with a big heart and a big purpose. What’s different now
is the clarity and focus of our mission, and the means and method by which we
are setting out to make it a reality. That’s what M5M represents. We truly
believe it has the ability to change the world.”

Mannatech was founded in 1994, built upon the disruptive discovery of
glyconutrients. The company went on to pioneer products based on Real Food
Technology solutions, an approach to nutritional supplementation that uses
real-food sources. Mannatech applies these same innovative technologies to aid
malnourished children around the globe.
