Manganese is a trace mineral that is present in tiny amounts in the body. It is found mostly in bones, the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. It is considered an essential nutrient, because the body requires it to function properly. Manganese helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factors, and sex hormones. It also plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function.
Supporting research & information
Manganese is essential for the healthy functioning of the brain, and is often used to treat specific nervous disorders. Manganese is a component of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD). Superoxide dismutase scavenges free radicals throughout the body, including the neural pathways. Oxidation by-products like free radicals are everywhere and can damage cell membranes and DNA and the brain can be negatively affected just as easily as other parts of the body. Free radicals may play a role in aging, as well as the development of a number of health conditions, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants, such as SOD, can help neutralize free radicals and reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
Manganese helps the body absorb vital vitamins like vitamin B and E and minerals like magnesium. This is due to the role of manganese in the enzymatic reactions that are required to absorb and utilize vitamins taken in from food. Manganese is one of the most versatile co-factors for enzymatic reactions, and if there is a risk of having a deficiency in certain vitamins, then be sure to increase levels of manganese, as long as they are still within safe and non-toxic levels.
Aside from its antioxidant role, manganese can also bind with neurotransmitters and stimulate faster or more efficient transmission of electrical impulses throughout the body, in effect, speeding up cognitive function.
Manganese is found in several foods including nuts, legumes, seeds, tea, whole grains, and leafy green vegetables.
A highly absorbable form of manganese that supports healthy ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles.
Manganese Bisglycinate contains well-absorbed manganese, which is necessary for the body’s antioxidant SOD. It also provides support for ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles.
Manganese tends to concentrate in the mitochondria, as well as in the bones, liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is an essential component of healthy carbohydrate metabolism, reproductive function, and skeletal and cartilage development. Manganese supplementation supports connective tissue health, providing benefit for ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles. Manganese also supports the function of antioxidants as an essential cofactor for superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that protects cell membranes from oxidative damage. Manganese Bisglycinate is a fully reacted mineral chelate that exhibits optimal absorbability.
Manganese is a critical element in two metalloenzymes – pyruvate decarboxylase and superoxide dismutase – both of which are involved in energy production and immune function. It also activates various enzymes that facilitate the synthesis of protein and DNA in the production of mucopolysaccharides that are found in cartilage.
Manganese is an essential cofactor for superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that protects cell membranes from lipid peroxidation and other harmful processes; therefore, a manganese deficiency can contribute to an SOD deficiency.
