Manganese Citrate
Manganese citrate is classified as a micronutrient or a trace mineral. It helps the body convert protein and fat into energy. The mineral also fights against free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have one unpaired electron. To stabilize itself it ‘steals’ an electron from another nearby stable molecule. That molecule then becomes a free radical itself. They attack normal molecules to make themselves normal. This could create a series of damaged molecules which could lead to many kinds of diseases. If we can take something to combat free radicals, it would improve the health of cells and the body overall. The mineral is found in very large amounts in plants. In the body, it is stored in the bones, the liver, the kidney, and the pancreas. Manganese citrate helps the body absorb vitamin B1 (thiamin) and vitamin E. All B-complex vitamins are used to help fight depression, anxiety and other nervous disorders. Some of the benefits of manganese citrate are that it helps reduce fatigue levels, regulate blood sugar levels, and it helps to prevent osteoporosis and its severity. It is possible that it helps to improve memory, helps digestion, and it helps reduce heavy menstrual flow. Thyroid function is said to improve and normal bone growth is promoted. The mineral also helps to maintain a healthy nervous system, immune system and reproductive system.
