Manganese is a trace mineral that the body needs for healthy functioning. It is necessary e.g. for normal energy metabolism, bone health and protection against oxidative stress.
Although the human body stores up to about 20mg of manganese in the kidneys, liver, pancreas and bones, it is also extremely important to obtain it from the diet on a regular basis . Manganese is found naturally in seeds and whole grains, and in smaller amounts in legumes, nuts and green vegetables. Manganese is essential for bone health. Studies have shown that when combined with other nutrients such as calcium, zinc and copper, manganese supports bone mineral density. This is especially important in the elderly. Manganese is part of the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase, which is probably one of the most important antioxidants in the human body.
Antioxidants help protect against free radicals, which are atoms or molecules that have at least one unpaired electron that are formed as a by-product of reactions that occur naturally in the human body . Superoxide dismutase helps fight the negative effects of free radicals by converting superoxide into smaller molecules that do not damage cells.
Scientific research suggests that taking in antioxidant nutrients helps protect cells from oxidative stress. Since manganese plays a role in the activity of superoxide dismutase, consuming this mineral can help us with this.
