So, what is manganese?

Manganese is a trace mineral that plays a vital role in the functioning of our body. It is involved in various metabolic processes, including bone development, wound healing, and carbohydrate metabolism. Manganese is also known to have antioxidant properties, which help protect the cells from damage caused by free radicals. This mineral can be found in several food sources like nuts, legumes, whole grains, and leafy vegetables. Adequate intake of manganese can promote healthy brain function, improve bone density, regulate blood sugar levels, and support the immune system. However, excessive consumption of this mineral can lead to toxicity and cause adverse health effects.
