Manganese is an essential trace element that is a cofactor in many enzymes that support a variety of functions in the body. Manganese plays a role in cholesterol, glucose, and carbohydrate metabolism, as well as bone formation, reproduction, and immune response.
On average, the body stores up to 20 mg of manganese in the kidneys, liver, pancreas, and skeletal structure. Although, up to 90% of absorbed manganese is excreted, so it must be replenished through diet regularly. When taken in in conjunction with vitamin K, manganese plays a critical role in blood clotting and homeostasis. *
