Manganese is an essential trace mineral, meaning your body requires the mineral from your diet but only in miniscule amounts. Just 20 milligrams of manganese are harbored in bones and active in the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Manganese is believed to be important to bone formation and is a cofactor (helper) for enzymes involved in antioxidation and in the metabolism of cholesterol, carbohydrates, and protein.
Manganese is also used medicinally. Manganese supplements are sometimes recommended in conjunction with other minerals to manage osteoporosis. The mineral may also be effective in treating premenstrual symptoms and anemia.
