COPPELL, Texas -- August 21, 2013

Mannatech®, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), the founder of the Mission 5
Million^SM social entrepreneurial movement and leading innovator of
naturally-sourced supplements based on Real Food Technology^® solutions, is
hosting a must-attend speaking event in partnership with the College of the
Ozarks in Branson, Mo., on Thursday, August 29 and Friday, August 30,
featuring world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon, humanitarian and best-selling
author Dr. Ben Carson. The Thursday night event is open to the public.

Dr. Carson made global history in 1987 as the pediatric neurosurgeon who
performed the first separation of craniopagus (Siamese) twins joined at the
back of the head.. His career and fascinating story were featured in the book
and movie Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. A best-selling author, Dr.
Carson just released his latest work, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering
What Made This Nation Great.

In 2004, Dr. Carson was amongst the speakers at Mannatech’s annual
conferences, MannaFest and MannaQuest. In 2011, he spoke again at MannaFest,
when Mannatech CEO and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Robert Sinnott interviewed
him about Integrative Health. Dr. Carson shared his story of the benefits he
experienced when combining glyconutrients, dietary changes, and
standard-of-care medical treatment.

“God gave us (in plants) what we need to remain healthy,” said Carson. “In
today’s world, our food chain is depleted of nutrients and our environment has
helped destroy what God gave us.”

Over the span of this special event, Dr. Carson will cover highlights from his
newest book on what has made the United States great, and will discuss the
meaning, benefit and purpose of social entrepreneurship. He will also share
experiences and findings in health and medicine that apply directly to
Mannatech’s dedication to glyconutrients and supplements derived from real
food-based sources. As a social entrepreneurship company, Mannatech is
committed to helping in the fight against global malnutrition by linking five
million consumers to five million children in need through its Mission 5
Million℠ movement.

The Thursday, August 29, event with Dr. Ben Carson at the College of the
Ozarks is open to the public. It begins with Dr. Carson’s message at 7 p.m.,
followed by a free book signing from 8:30–9 p.m.
