Manganese is a mineral that is required in small amounts to
manufacture enzymes necessary for the metabolism of proteins and fats. It also supports
the immune system, regulates blood sugar levels, and is involved in the production of
cellular energy, reproduction, and bone growth. Manganese works with vitamin K to support
blood clotting, aids in digestion, and as antioxidant, is a vital component of Sodium
Oxide Dismutase, a large molecule that is the body's main front-line defense against
damaging free-radicals. Working with the B-complex vitamins, manganese help control the
effects of stress while contributing to ones sense of well being.
