Manganese

Manganese is categorized as an essential trace nutrient (i.e. a mineral). It acts as a cofactor, providing function for specific enzyme-based activities. Its importance remains relatively ignored by the general population. This may be due to the lack of deficiency states associated with manganese, and the minute quantities needed for overall physiological health.


The majority of consumed manganese is deposited into our metabolic organs. This includes the bones, liver, pancreas, kidneys, pituitary, and adrenal glands. At any given moment, we store an estimated 15 - 20 milligrams of manganese in these differentiated areas of the body. Existing deposits give the body the ability to readily convert this mineral for accomplishing a variety of tasks, including; decarboxylation, hydrolysis, phosphorylation, and transamination.


Manganese exists as an important component of the direct enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSoD). This assists in the usance of vitamins such as Vitmain C, Vitamin B1, biotin, and choline. It may also prove to be a potent antioxidant, protecting us from external free radical damage upon cellular membranes located within the body. This may be especially relevant in the prevention of the aging process, its associated metabolic processes, and the development of certain irregular chronic health conditions.


There are a number of forms of manganese which the body uses for biochemical processes. These include manganese salts (manganese gluconate and sulfate), and manganese chelates. Chelates of manganese include; aspartate, picolinate, fumarate, malate, succinate, and citrate.
