The benefits of Manganese

Manganese is a trace mineral that is found in small amounts in the body. It is found mostly in bones, the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Manganese helps the body form connective tissue, bones and helps blood clotting.

Manganese also helps metabolise amino acids, cholesterol, glucose, and carbohydrates.

Considered an essential nutrient , the body cannot produce manganese, but it can store it.

Found in seeds and whole grains, as well as legumes, beans, nuts, leafy green vegetables and tea.

When combined with the nutrients calcium, zinc and copper, manganese supports bone mineral density. This is particularly important in older adults.

Research suggests that taking manganese with calcium, zinc and copper may help reduce spinal bone loss in older women .

Our organic pure and blended kale juices are rich in manganese and can contribute towards healthy bones, muscles, gums and connective tissues.
