Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

Manganese is an essential component of carbohydrate metabolism, reproductive function, and skeletal and cartilage development. It concentrates in mitochondrial tissue and in the bone, liver, pancreas, and kidney.

Manganese is a critical element in the two metalloenzymes pyruvate decarboxylase and superoxide dismutase, both of which are involved in energy production and immune function.

Manganese activates various enzymes that facilitate the synthesis of protein and DNA in the production of mucopolysaccharides found in cartilage.

Manganese is an essential cofactor for superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that can protect cell membranes from lipid peroxidation and other harmful processes; therefore, a manganese deficiency can result in a deficiency of SOD.

Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced in the body. It is produced from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys and is transported to the pancreas. During digestion, it is secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals to facilitate their absorption.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Aspartic acid, hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Good version of this important mineral

Thorne Research probably makes the highest quality supplements in the market. No magnesium stearate so all you get is high quality ingredients.

Important trace mineral

Manganese helps poor bone density (don't take at the same time as calcium) and is also very mildly estrogenic in effect. It can also help with low stomach acid. Thorne are excellent quality and purity, one of the top brands along with Paradise if you're concerned about avoiding additives.

tiny little capsules, yay!!!

I read awhile ago that low manganese levels can contribute to more frequent bouts of candida, so I started taking them. I have since started buying them at i-herb. I am sure many things I'm doing are contributing to keeping my body in balance and candida free but I have been very happy with this product and the size of capsules.
