Manganese Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Manganese is required to manufacture enzymes necessary for the metabolism of proteins and fat. It also supports the immune system, blood sugar balance, and is involved in the production of cellular energy, reproduction and bone growth. It also activates the enzymes responsible for DNA and RNA production. Manganese acts as a catalyst and cofactor in the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol. Manganese aids in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors, and sex hormones and plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese ions are able to scavenge hydroxyl and superoxide radicals and it is a crucial component of the metalloenzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD). Manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) is the principal antioxidant enzyme of mitochondria and is the principal constituent of the mitochondrial oxidant defense system.
