What is Manganese and its health benefits?

Many people confuse Manganese with Magnesium and, in fact, they are two different elements, although both are equally important. Manganese is an essential mineral necessary for the normal functioning of brain function, the nervous system and metabolic enzymes.

Manganese is found naturally mainly in plant foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grain cereals, vegetables and teas. Although meat contains little manganese, it can contribute to the better absorption of this mineral by the body. Manganese is also found in the water we consume.

How does Manganese help us?

Manganese plays a role in various chemical processes that occur during the development of the human body, reproduction, immune response, regulation of brain activity and energy production. Manganese is also important in helping to maintain bone health, and this is especially important in men and women over the age of fifty, when the risk of bone deficiency is greatest.
