Did you know? Manganese helps regulate fat metabolism and blood-glucose. It is needed for a healthy thyroid function which itself is essential to maintain a healthy weight. Good food sources of manganese include: tea, wheatgerm, spinach, split peas, nuts, oatgerm, oatmeal, pineapple, green leafy vegetables.
Like iron, manganese aids in oxygen transfer from lungs to cells. Though only found in trace amounts in the body, good health is hard to come by without manganese.
Manganese strengthens tendons, tissues, ligaments, and linings in and outside of organs. "If the human body is well supplied with it (manganese), various tissues, cells and nerves become more ductile, tensile, and elastic" (The Chemistry of Man by Bernard Jensen).
Manganese makes up a part of molecules known as mucopolysaccharides, which are used to form collagen -- the strong fibrous connective material that builds tissue, bone, and cartilage. This mesh of collagen is the framework on which calcium, magnesium, and other bone hardening minerals are deposited.
Deafness, if due to damage of the cartilage of the ear, can be attributed partially to a deficiency in manganese.
Production of sex hormones is aided by manganese; it also helps the reproductive organs work properly because of its effect on tissues and nerves.
Manganese is stored half in the bones and the remainder in the liver, pancreas, pituitary gland and kidneys.
