What is Manganese ?
Manganese is a trace mineral that naturally occurs in our bodies in tiny amounts. It is a component of the antioxidant enzyme ‘superoxide dismutase’ (SOD), which helps the body fight free radicals from damaging the body and its cells. Manganese is mainly found in the kidneys, pancreas, liver and bones. It has many important roles concerning keeping your body healthy. It is essential for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. It also helps the body’s metabolism and calcium absorption. Manganese is present in a number of foods including whole grains, seeds, nuts and pineapple. Manganese deficiency can contribute to infertility, bone malformation, weakness, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even seizures.
