Mission 5 millionDonation by consumption
To help fight global malnutrition by nourishing the world with our real-food supplements. We begin to accomplish this by helping children in need receive proper nutrition through our products.
From 2009 through 2015, Mannatech’s programs have generated over 95 million servings of PhytoBlend™ for malnourished children.
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.
How M5M works
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’s suitable for vegetarians. None of the ingredients in the formula are obtained from animal sources.
