Manganese is another trace element found in almost all living organisms. The name manganese is derived from the Greek word for magic. The name’s origin fits because scientists are still trying to understand the diverse effects on living organisms of manganese deficiency and toxicity.

This mineral plays an important role in the healthy development of cartilage and bone and the production of collagen used in wound healing. The metabolism of cholesterol, amino acids and carbohydrates is done by enzymes activated by manganese. Sex hormone production, enzyme activation and glucose metabolism are all affected by manganese. The brain, muscles, thyroid, nerves, and mammary glands are all influenced by enzymes associated with manganese if if not directly by manganese itself.

Manganese deficiencies may be indicated by dizziness, hearing loss, ear noises and muscle coordination problems.

Some foods that are rich in manganese are kelp, spinach, leafy vegetables, beets, nuts and whole grains. Note: As much as 75 percent of the manganese in wheat is lost when it it processed into flour.

While manganese may not be the cause of diabetes, osteoporosis, asthma, allergies, fatigue and epilepsy; it may help in the management of them.

Dr. Charles Northen, MD researcher reports that, “In the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function. Lacking vitamins, the system can make use of the minerals, but lacking minerals vitamins are useless.”
