Mannatech Gets Singapore Patent for GI-ProBalance

COPPELL, Texas The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore granted Mannatech Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX) a patent for technology related to its GI-ProBalance product. The United States will first see this synbiotic product during Mannatechs annual international conference, MannaFest 2011, held March 10 to March 12 in Dallas.

The GI-ProBalance product is a yogurt-flavored powder packaged in portable slimsticks. It is designed to stimulate immune function, support proper digestion and gastrointestinal (GI) tract function, and improve nutrient absorption. The probiotic and prebiotic supplement was specifically formulated to work synergistically with Mannatechs flagship Ambrotose® products. GI-ProBalance slimsticks have already been introduced to the Asian and Australia/New Zealand markets.

Having another patented product in our portfolio is great news for the company and our independent sales associates across the country and around the world," said Robert A. Sinnott, Ph.D., MNS, co-CEO and chief science officer of Mannatech. There has been a real drought of innovative, patented products in the nutritional supplement industry over the past few years. This patent validates Mannatechs tireless efforts to develop quality products based on patented technologies. Innovative products that provide real benefits to people are vital to Mannatechs growth and the growth of the dietary supplement industry."
