All Mannatech products are patented. They can be ordered either as a customer (member) or as an associate (distributor). Details about respective discounts in both categories can be found at the Mannatech website. Autoship monthly program offered.

The compensation program is well explained at the website, If you need help understanding it, email me and I will walk you through it or call a Mannatech distributor and get these details and other questions answered first hand from someone working this program. I feel you must be passionate about these products,and that you need to have used them to be passionate if you are to be a successful distributor.

Mannatech sales have exceeded 1.5 million since 1994. This is impressive. Mannatech is traded on NASDAQ and MTEX. The company supports a non-profit division called Manna Relief Ministries, a 300 + site organization around the world, that is dedicated to the wellness of medically fragile children.

Headquartered in Coppell, Texas, Mannatech is a member of both the United States and Canadian Direct Selling Associations (DSA). Members abide by DSA code standards making no statements or promises that might mislead either consumers or prospective sales people.

While I have heard that two of Mannatech’s founders have questionable pasts, this just remains a rumor until confirmed. I see nothing wrong with the program as stated on the website if health/wellness is an affiliate area you are interested in investigating. Find out how often you get paid and how.
