As a mineral supplement, add 7 drops in water or juice daily, or more as directed by a licensed health care practitioner. Dilute to taste.
Manganese is a trace mineral that is present in tiny amounts in the body. It is found mostly in bones, the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Manganese helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factors, and sex hormones. It also plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function.
You’ll find manganese in foods including sprouted grains, legumes, beans, certain nuts and seeds. Whole grains are usually considered the best natural source. Wherever it is found, iron is usually also present.
It plays an essential role in:
- macronutrient metabolism
- forming connective tissue and bones
- facilitating blood clotting
- sex hormone and neurotransmitter synthesis
Key component of the antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD), which helps fight free radicals.
It’s also a co-factor that is used to make important enzymes, including arginase and glutamine synthetase which work as antioxidants in the body to lower levels of oxidative stress and inflammation, if not managed well by the body leads to all of which can lead to issues such as heart disease or cancer.
Scientists recently concluded that manganese deficiency may be tied to higher risk for:
- metabolic diseases
- type 2 diabetes
- insulin resistance
- liver disease
Manganese-deficient animals have been shown to have low manganese superoxide dismutase function.
Because of the potential for side effects and interactions with medications, you should take dietary supplements only under the supervision of a knowledgeable health care provider. The amount of manganese ingested in 1 day (from foods or supplements) should not exceed 10 milligrams due to the potential for nervous system damage.
Calcium, phosphorous, and manganese work closely together in the body. For this reason, you may need more manganese if you are getting more calcium and phosphorus.
Minerals are essential, but depleted in most people, probably because of today's over-fertilized, over-pesticized farming. Since heavy metals (“bad minerals”), such as mercury, lead, cadmium, etc., are more prevalent in our society than ever before, it is believed that the intake of “good minerals” will help remove those toxins (“bad minerals”).
One mineral can, and will, displace another with the same ionic value. By taking good minerals, we help displace bad minerals & mobilize them out of the body. It's a double nutritional hit: adding needed minerals and detoxing at the same time.
Minerals taken in liquid form are more readily absorbed in the body. Using the Liquid Mineral Taste Test Instructions gives you the ability to taste them and then take only the ones you need.
Yes, however if the child is taking other supplements or medications, we recommend speaking with your health care practitioner. Since the dosage is measured in drops, the dosage is easily adjustable.
Our liquid minerals are ionic. Ionic minerals dissolve in aqueous solution (water), while colloidal minerals are suspended in aqueous solution.
None have ever been reported to us.
They can be taken on an empty stomach but we recommend taking them with food.
