Today I welcome founder David Reid and co-founder Brad McDonnell of Manna to the podcast. David and Brad have spent over a decade traveling to the ends of the Earth, to the highest and lowest places, finding the best, most active, and most available form of nutrients to create Manna. Their product contains a comprehensive blend of nutrients and essential minerals from Shilajit and Ocean Plasma/Ormus to enhance energy levels, radiance, cognitive function, sexual drive, vitality, and overall longevity. Manna is dedicated to helping humankind take control and restore its full health potential in the simplest way possible combining the wisdom and practice of ancient medicine with modern-day science and innovation.

In this episode, we deep dive into Brad and David’s background and how they came together to create the company. They also shed light (pun intended) on what sun gazing is, its transformative effects, and the sense of connection it can bring to our lives. Listen to this very enlightening (no pun intended this time) episode and discover how you can tap into the power of light for a transformative journey to genetic liberation and unity!


  • Brad’s early fascination with the human body, sports, and his traumatic neck injury that changed the course of his life
  • David’s journey from the military to working in the medical industry, and his quest for deeper understanding of life’s purpose
  • What sun gazing is, its benefits, and the realization of oneness with the universe through it
  • The role of minerals and remineralization in health and wellness and the goal of bringing nature back into people’s lives through wellness products
  • The idea of genetic liberation, transitioning from a state of polarity to a state of unity, and the potential for humans to eventually live off light
