Is Mana a Synthetic Product?

Forward-thinking, technology-driven food products like Mana often spark discussion about the benefits or harmfulness of organic foods, natural foods, synthetic foods, and food produced using biotechnology. It therefore makes sense to examine Mana from the point of view of science in order to clarify what it really is and what it is not. Mana consists of 99.4% refined, natural ingredients, plus vitamins, minerals, and flavourings, some of which are natural and some of which are artificial. The artificial components of Mana, however, are identical to their counterparts that occur in nature. Neither our bodies nor the most sensitive scientific instruments can tell them apart. For example, natural vitamin E isolated from soy and artificial vitamin E are identical substances. Both nature and humans use...

S | Sulphur

As a component of amino acids, enzymes, and hormones, sulphur occurs naturally in foods. Proteins are a source of sulfur amino acids, including cysteine ​​and methionine. Methionine is an essential amino acid that can be converted into several sulphur-containing molecules with important functions, such as S-adenosylmethionine or creatine. It also gives rise to cysteine—another sulphur amino acid. Methionine has antioxidant effects and is important for proper functioning of the immune and nervous systems. Cysteine ​​is a non-essential amino acid that is no less important than essential amino acids. It plays a role in the formation of protein structures, as well as in the synthesis of taurine and glutathione. These compounds are crucial to the regulation of oxidative stress and detoxification. Sulphur is a natural...

Na | Sodium

Sodium is a biogenic element that is part of the human body, where it is found mainly in extracellular body fluids in the form of Na + ion. It performs an irreplaceable function on the membranes of our cells; namely, together with potassium, it forms a sodium-potassium pump (electrogenic transmembrane enzyme), which maintains the characteristic uneven distribution of these two ions on the inside and outside of membranes. The distribution and transport of sodium and potassium between the external and internal environment of cells has a significant effect on the formation and propagation of the membrane electrical signal by nerve and muscle cells. Correct operation of the pump maintains the ideal osmotic pressure inside the cells, the ideal concentration of ions in the bloodstream,...

F | Fluorine

In food, fluorine occurs together with other elements in the form of inorganic fluorides. These compounds aid the formation of bones and teeth, as well as the formation of enamel. They also protect bones from osteoporosis and support the cardiovascular system.  There are only trace amounts of fluorides in Mana, which occur naturally in its ingredients. The recommended daily intake is 3.5 mg.  Precise information on the quantity of fluorine in ManaPowder Origin can be found here. Precise information on the quantity of fluorine in ManaDrink Origin can be found here.‍ Mana is nutritionally complete food. Enjoy it as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Cl | Chlorine

In the human body, chlorine occurs as chloride together with sodium and helps generate the osmotic pressure of body fluids. Part of our gastric juice is hydrochloric acid. A lack of chloride results in indigestion.‍ ‍Consumption of chloride has been shown to contribute to normal digestion through its production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Precise information on the quantity of chlorine in ManaPowder Origin can be found here. Precise information on the quantity of chlorine in ManaDrink Origin can be found here.‍ Mana is nutritionally complete food. Enjoy it as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.  Sources: Dietary Reference Intakes for Water, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, and Sulfate. National Academy Press, Washington, DC: 2005.
