If you’ve been on the search for the “perfect” weight loss diet, the Green Mediterranean Diet is about as good as it gets. <br> Based on the traditional Mediterranean diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, healthy proteins, and unsaturated plant-based oils like extra virgin olive oil, this diet has long been considered not only a wonderful way to eat to promote health but also enjoy great flavor. <br><br>Research into the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet began in the 1950s. <br> Recently, researchers in Israel designed and tested the next generation of the Mediterranean Diet, the Green Mediterranean Diet, a plant-forward pattern designed to assess what additional healthy benefits could come from a dietary pattern that included foods like walnuts, green tea, and Mankai, which contains various types of plant polyphenols.Read full article >
A new study published in NUTRIENTS, conducted by leading university experts explored the unique health and dietary benefits of Mankai. The study attempted to identify the polyphenol composition of Mankai, through its activity in the digestive system and expression of bacteria through the intestines and finally in a long-term and large-scale clinical trial. About 200 different polyphenolic compounds were identified in Mankai. Findings from an artificial gut experiment demonstrated that Mankai digestion significantly triggers the presence of bacteria in the bowel involved in the breakdown of polyphenols, indicating a direct link between the Mankai plant and gut microbiome.Read full article >
The many benefits of Mankai also include improved liver health. A recently published study showed that you can reduce the amount of fat in the liver through weight loss and dietary changes, which included consumption of Mankai..Read full article >

When my best friend recently told she had been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, I got sad and then I got angry. The sadness came from knowing how hard it is to manage diabetes. I have had Type I diabetes—an autoimmune disease in which the immune system destroys the cells that make insulin—for nearly 43 years. The daily challenges of managing blood sugar levels, food, stress, physical activity, sleep, and medications are never ending.Read full article >

Extremely versatile in the kitchen, Mankai is the only plant source to have many nutritional benefits. Research shows it is an excellent source of numerous nutrients including vitamin K (providing 580-percent of the recommended daily value), folate, vitamins A, zinc, and iron. It's also a good source of vitamin B12 and provides omega-3 fats. Click here to find out more about the science and discover some recipes.Read more >
Mankai contains bioactive B12 compounds and could serve as a B12 plant-based food source after an examination of the presence of B12 in Wolffia Globosa (Mankai), predicted functional pathways using gut-bioreactor, and the effects of long-term Mankai consumption as a partial meat substitute, on serum B12 concentrations.Read more >
Mankai can improve blood glucose levels In randomized controlled crossover trial among humans: the Mankai shake achieved better results than a yogurt shake in glucose control. In this trial, published in Diabetes Care, the researchers compared Mankai shake consumption to a yogurt shake equivalent in carbohydrates, protein, lipids, and calories.Following two weeks of monitoring with glucose sensors, participants who drank the Mankai shake showed a much better response in a variety of measurements,including lower glucose rise, later peak time, faster bloodstream glucose evacuation and lower morning fasting glucose levels. Mankai™ maintained a better sense of satiety.Read more >
Mankai is a rich source of iron, which is highly absorbed and bioavailable. In rats’ experiments, Mankai could treat Anemia in the same rate and extend as iron supplement. In humans’ 6-month randomized controlled trial among hundreds of participants, the group, which has been randomized to consume green Mediterranean diet with daily Mankai shake and less meat/ poultry, did not decrease and actually improved its blood iron homeostasis and folic acid levels.Read more >
Mankai is a rich source of protein – which is bioavailable with its nine essential amino acid and is a source of B12 vitamin. In randomized controlled feeding trial in humans to explore the protein bioavailability of Mankai -it was found that all the Mankai’s essential amino acids were well absorbed and emerged in the bloodstream as did well-known protein sources. Mankai whole protein profile is comparable to the golden standard of protein – egg. The trial also suggested a potential bioavailability of Mankai’s vitamin B12.Read more >
