Mana is an all-in-one meal solution designed to replace breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks. Any time or all the time.
The composition of Mana is based on clinical studies conducted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), proprietary clinical studies conducted in cooperation with Charles University in Prague, and experience in clinical medicine.
The unique combination of proteins in Mana supports the growth and regeneration of muscles. One portion of ManaPowder™ delivers 21 g and contains all essential amino acids in balanced proportions. This protein comes from 6 different sources: soy, peas, oats, hemp, rice, and algae.
Among other things, the fats in Mana help regulate cholesterol and supply quick energy to the body and brain. Each portion of Mark 6 contains a 19-g mixture of oils from canola, algae (rich in DHA and EPA omega-3s), coconut, sunflower, flaxseed, oats, and phospholipids from soy lecithin.
The fiber in Mana supports the growth and function of friendly intestinal bacteria. One portion of Mark 6 delivers 7 g. This comes from oat fiber with beta-glucans, soluble chicory fiber (also known as inulin), carrot fiber, hemp fiber, pea fiber, and algae fiber.
Mark 6 contains a total of 14 vitamins, and 24 minerals and trace elements. This includes new, chelated forms of magnesium (magnesium lactate), potassium (potassium citrate), and zinc (zinc gluconate), which are even more soluble, and thus more bioavailable.
Thanks in part to its combination of simple and complex carbohydrates, Mana has a low glycemic index (29), which means that it causes a steady rise and fall of blood glucose levels over time, for gradual release of energy. Low-GI foods greatly reduce the risk of diseases like obesity and diabetes.

Carbs, lipids, and proteins are macronutrients, i.e. nutrients which must be consumed in large amounts for proper bodily function. Of the total energy content in Mana, lipids/fats account for 44%, carbohydrates account for 34%, and protein accounts for 22%. This ratio is in line with EFSA recommendations and the latest clinical studies in nutrition.
Amounts of amino acids in 5 servings of Mana™ Mark 6 (AA g/100 g protein)
Amounts of amino acids in the reference protein of the WHO (AA g/100 g protein)
Sea algae is good for your heart, brain, and vision. This is owing to its unsaturated DHA and EPA fatty acids, which produce beneficial effects at consumption of 250 mg per day. 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink supply 1150 mg of these acids, 1105 mg of which are DHA.
IIsomaltulose, also known as Palatinose™, is a disaccharide that helps keep Mana's glycemic index low (29), thus reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Foods containing isomaltulose help regulate blood glucose levels better than foods containing sugar.
Mana contains 6 types of fibre: oat fibre with significant beta-glucan content, soluble chicory fibre (inulin), carrot fibre, hemp fibre, pea fibre, and algae fibre. All of these support the growth of friendly intestinal bacteria. Oat beta-glucans also help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
Flaxseed oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which, among other things, protect the brain against ageing. The flaxseed oil used in Mana is both organic and cold-pressed. And thanks to special oxygen-exclusion technology, we avoid any unwanted peroxidation. Flaxseed oil contains the highest concentration of omega-3 fatty acids of all vegetable oils.
Sunflower oil protects skin and body tissue from oxidative stress. It contains a rich monounsaturated (MUFA)/polyunsaturated (PUFA) mixture of predominantly oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6), as well as high concentrations of vitamin E and phytosterols.
Corn helps deliver quick energy to the body and, in combination with the other ingredients in Mana, contributes to smooth digestion. In addition to being a source of pure and well-structured carbohydrates, corn gives Mana a pleasant consistency and mild sweetness.
1 serving of Mana Powder Mark 6 delivers 21 g of protein from a balanced mix of soy, peas, oats, algae, brown rice, and hemp. When combined, these sources deliver a full, complex plant protein with a complete spectrum of amino acids that supports the growth and regeneration of muscles.
Soy lecithin is a source of the valuable nutrient choline, which improves memory and may help fight symptoms of dementia. Thanks to its emulsifying and stabilising properties, it is an essential component of Mana.
Canola oil contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. It is rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, low in saturated fat, and high in fat-soluble vitamins and phytochemicals such as lutein and phytosterols.
Unique among natural oils, coconut oil burns fast to deliver quick energy to your body and brain. The coconut oil used in Mana is both organic and cold-pressed; it has a pleasant aroma, a solid consistency, and is rich in saturated medium-chain fatty acids - especially lauric, myristic, caprylic, and capric acid. It contains only a small amount of highly saturated fatty acids.
