            Manganese, also called the “brain-mineral,” is important in the utilization of all mental facilities/functions.  It aids in memory, and other brain and nerve faculties.  Though only found in trace amounts in the body, good health is impossible without it.  It promotes the natural immune restoration functions, and like iron, aids in oxygen transfer from lungs to cells.

            Manganese strengthens tendons, tissues, ligaments, and linings in and outside of organs… “If the human body is well supplied with it; various tissues, cells and nerves become more ductile, tensile, and elastic”.  Manganese makes up part of a molecule known as mucopolysaccharides, which are used to form collagen, the strong fibrous connective material that builds tissue, bone, and cartilage.  This mesh of collagen is the framework on which calcium, magnesium, and other bone building minerals are deposited.  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a painful condition in which arm tendons are weak or damaged, is a sign of a manganese deficiency.  Deafness, if due to damage of the cartilage of the ear, can be attributed partially to a deficiency in manganese.  Manganese has a positive effect on the libido by increasing energy levels and the brain’s ability to receive and send messages.  It also helps the reproductive organs to work properly because of its effect on tissues and nerves.  Production of sex hormones is aided by manganese.  It can help reduce menstrual cramps and PMS.  Manganese is stored half in the bones and the remainder in the liver, pancreas, pituitary gland, and kidneys.
