Manganese Gluconate Powder
Manganese Gluconate is a salt combining Gluconic Acid and Manganese, which keeps up production of energy in the body and also keeps the Thyroid gland functioning correctly while stimulating development of the bones.
Manganese is one of those extremely important elements that the body simply can't do without. It is meant primarily to function as a Coenzyme to several different metabolic processes which together work to sustain life as we know it. More specifically, Manganese is involved deeply in the synthesis of proteins and in the metabolism of energy. It also forms connective tissue and strengthens bones while helping to maintain cholesterol levels and making sure insulin is still doing its job.
Manganese is needed in order for Collagen to be formed which is useful in a number of ways, but particularly in its ability to reduce joint damage. It is also part of the principal antioxidant enzyme used by mitochondria to protect cells from free radicals. Also, in the way of more traditional usefulness, Manganese facilitates more effective transportation and absorption of various minerals.
It is useful for those that are involved in high intensity workouts, as athletes usually take high protein diets and taking too much protein can cause a reduction in the body's overall levels of manganese.
Manganese can also be supplemented through dietary means. It can be found in a host of different natural sources including raisins, avocados, seaweed, lemongrass, blueberries, parsley, egg yolks, legumes, oranges, broccoli, and the list goes on.
Health Benefits Provided by Manganese Gluconate
Manganese is necessary in order to correctly metabolize fats and proteins. It may also increase the effectiveness of the immune system as well as bone strength, muscle mass, and Collagen production. It keeps the blood sugar at a constant balanced level and is even necessary in energy production at a cellular level.
Manganese helps to synthesize enzymes present in fatty acids and cholesterol and it is responsible for signaling the enzymes which produce DNA and RNA respectively. Manganese is needed in order to take oxygen from water, in order to stimulate certain sex hormones and in order to deal with blood clotting.
Manganese is needed for the body to absorb Vitamin B1 and Vitamin E. Not only that, but Manganese works well when combined with B vitamins and increases their effectiveness as well as its own.
Serving Size & Timing
It is suggested that Manganese Gluconate be taken in servings of 100mg per day. Since the FDA recommends that only 2mg of elemental Manganese be taken per day, a serving of 100mg with only 11% of it being Manganese will come out to a total of 11mg of Manganese per day.
It is important to remember that at high enough levels, Manganese Gluconate is considered toxic. Therefore, it is best to use caution when taking this supplement. It should not be measured out with measuring spoons, only with an accurate milligram scale.
