Manganese

Manganese is a naturally occurring trace mineral that’s required by the body for several important functions. Necessary for the growth and maintenance of healthy bones, manganese also plays a part in the body’s metabolism process and functions as a cell-protective antioxidant.

Manganese also functions as a cofactor for many enzymes involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids. It helps release energy from foods and plays a part in the synthesis of fatty acids, which are important for healthy nervous system function.

Finally, manganese plays an important role in the healing process and can speed recovery from injury.
