Manganese Supplement (Parenteral, Oral)

Overview

Manganese Supplement helps to treat or prevent manganese deficiency.

Manganese is a vital nutrient involved in various chemical processes of the body, including the processing of carbohydrates, protein, and cholesterol. It also might be involved in the formation of bones.

The body requires manganese for optimal health and growth. For people whose regular diet can't supply adequate manganese or people who require more manganese, it may be necessary to take manganese supplements. Manganese helps the body break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. It does this as part of various enzymes.

A lack of manganese hasn't been reported in human beings. Manganese deficiency in animals was found to cause irregular formation of cartilage and bone, may reduce the ability of the body to properly use sugar, and may lead to growth problems.

For optimal health, it's vital to eat a varied and balanced diet. Carefully follow any diet plan your doctor may suggest. For your own dietary mineral and/or vitamin needs, ask your healthcare provider to give you a list of suitable foods. If you believe you aren't receiving enough minerals and/or vitamins, you can opt to use a dietary supplement.

You can find manganese in cereal products, whole grains, dry beans, peas, and lettuce.

The injectable form of Manganese Supplement is given by a healthcare professional or under their supervision.

Manganese Supplement is available as a tablet and capsule and is sold under the brand name Mangimin.
