Supports Energy Production! Manganese is an essential trace mineral involved in many key functions in the body. It plays a role in energy production‚ in normal bone formation and development‚ and in the synthesis of many vital cellular biochemicals such as collagen‚ prothrombin‚ urea‚ mucopolysaccharides‚ fatty acids and proteins. In addition‚ manganese is a cofactor for superoxide dismutase‚ one of the body's main protective antioxidant systems. This manganese is specially bonded (chelated) with amino acids to protect mineral value and enhance assimilation. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
