    MANGANESE DESCRIPTION

    OVERVIEW

    Minute quantities of Manganese are needed for protein and fat metabolism, healthy nerves, a healthy immune system, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese is used in energy production and is required for normal bone growth and for reproduction. In addition, it is used in the formation of cartilage and synovial (lubricating) fluid of the joints. It is also necessary for the synthesis of bone.

    Manganese is essential for people with iron-deficiency anemias and is needed for the utilization of vitamin B-1 (thiamine) and vitamin E. Manganese works well with the B-complex vitamins to give an overall feeling of well-being. It enables the body to utilize vitamin C and biotin as well as choline. It aids in the formation of mother's milk and is a key element in the production of enzymes needed to oxidize fats and to metabolize purines, including the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD).

    A deficiency of manganese (which is considered extremely rare) may lead to atherosclerosis, bone/disc problems, confusion, convulsions, eye problems, hearing problems, heart disorders, high cholesterol levels, hyperglycemia, hypertension, irritability, memory loss, muscle contractions, pain in the joints, pancreatic damage, profuse perspiration, rapid pulse, tooth-grinding, tremors, and a tendency to breast ailments.

    Toxicity by diet is rare. Miners who are exposed to high levels of manganese, which can also be inhaled, can cause "manganese madness".





    Manganese Foods


    MANGANESE DIETARY SOURCES

    FOOD SOURCES

    The largest quantities of Manganese are found in avocados, nuts and seeds, seaweed, and whole grains. This mineral may also be found in blueberries, egg yolks, legumes, dried peas, pineapple, and green leafy vegetables.

    HERBAL SOURCES

    Herbs that contain manganese include Alfalfa, Burdock Root, Catnip, Cayenne, Chamomile, Chickweed, Dandelion, Eyebright, Fennel Seed, Fenugreek, Hops, Horsetail, Lemongrass, Mullein, Oat Straw, Paprika, Rose Hips, Wild Yam, Yarrow, and Yellow Dock.

    People in the United Kingdom are not likely to suffer from manganese deficiency since Tea is a major source of manganese and supplies up to half the daily UK intake.

    MANGANESE DOSAGE INFORMATION

    RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE (RDA)

    US RDA: 2 to 7 mg daily. Manganese is best taken with vitamins B-1, vitamin E, calcium as well as phosphorus. A higher intake than 2 mg per day may be necessary when breastfeeding or when taking a calcium or phosphorus supplement.

    Manganese is lost or is not absorbed well in the presence of large amounts of calcium, phosphorus, zinc, cobalt, and soy protein. Manganese is depleted in the soil by extensive use of chemical fertilizers (old fashioned cow manure is always better than chemicals for fertilizing) or too much lime, and food grown in such soil will have a low manganese content.
