What does manganese do in the body?
Manganese is an essential trace element, which means that the body needs a certain amount of the substance to be able to maintain vital processes. Among other things, manganese contributes to the maintenance of a normal bone structure, the normal formation of connective tissue and the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids to function normally. Manganese also protects our cells against free radicals that break down the cells. The release of free radicals takes place continuously in the body, and increases when we stress, smoke or sunbathe, for example. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, manganese helps to counteract this process.
It is clear that manganese deficiency can lead to skeletal and joint problems in several animal species (1). Researchers have also investigated whether there is a link between the body's manganese levels and osteoporosis in humans, but there are still insufficient studies to be able to establish any results.
Healthwell Manganese has a recommended dosage of 1-2 capsules per day.
