Manganese is a trace element that is contained in food, but at the same time can also be absorbed through dietary supplements. It is responsible for various functions in the body. If there is a manganese deficiency, this can make itself felt in unpleasant ways. Therefore, it is important that the body receives sufficient manganese, on the one hand to cover the daily requirement, but on the other hand also to prevent long-term consequences due to a manganese deficiency.
Manganese is a trace element that is mentioned less often than, for example, iron, vitamin C, calcium or magnesium. It belongs to the minerals that are needed by the body only in small quantities. Nevertheless, it is an essential trace element, because it fulfills important tasks within the organism.
The recommended daily amount of manganese is 2 to 5 milligrams. The German Society for Nutrition (DGE) has set this amount as recommended. However, as with all other trace elements, minerals and vitamins, this is only an estimate. The individual requirement is always more important. And that can be higher, but also lower.
A deficiency of manganese occurs gradually. So it is not a process that you notice from one day to the next. Since manganese is an important component of various enzymes, it has an influence above all on energy metabolism, on the stability and maintenance of bones, on the formation of healthy connective tissue and on the protection of cells. In the case of cells, the most important thing is to protect them from oxidative stress.
The deficiency is not always obvious. It is relatively difficult to determine a deficiency by external manifestations. However, a deficiency leads to an unbalanced energy balance and it may also affect fertility. The connective tissue is weak and cell protection does not function properly. Therefore, it is important that manganese is taken in sufficient form.
For many, this trace element is even a beauty food. After all, who doesn’t want firm connective tissue, healthy-looking skin and strong bones?
There are different ways to keep manganese levels at a healthy level. On the one hand, there are of course foods that contain this important trace element. These include, but are not limited to:
Not everyone likes the foods mentioned, so it is also quite possible to counteract with dietary supplements. However, it is recommended to consult the doctor in advance here.
It is hardly possible to produce a too high manganese value in the body via food intake. An overdose is hardly possible here. However, this can happen with dietary supplements that are taken incorrectly. That is why the doctor should be asked in advance whether a supply of the trace element is necessary and in what form.
We have in our online store various preparations in which manganese is contained. And in different dosage form. This means that smaller amounts but also larger amounts are contained in the products, so that in the case of a manganese deficiency can be reacted quite differently and the appropriate preparation is selected.
Here we recommend after consultation with the doctor to select the appropriate product individually. If there is a deficiency elsewhere, the addition of manganese can also be supplemented with other trace elements, vitamins and minerals. Combination products are also available in our online store.
