Manganese

A manganese deficiency has not been documented conclusively although a voluntary experiment resulted in temporary dermatitis, hypocholesteremia and increased levels of alkaline phosphatase.

The necessary for a healthy bone structure of manganese (Mn) is an element of enzyme systems such as glycosyltransferases and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase. The average intake is 1.6-2.3 mg / day, the absorbance at 5-10%. A manganese deficiency has not been documented conclusively although a voluntary experiment resulted in temporary dermatitis, hypocholesteremia and increased levels of alkaline phosphatase. A Manganintoxikation occurs only in people who work in gold mines or in the gold processing; prolonged contact with manganese leads similar to Parkinson’s disease or Wilson’s disease to neurological symptoms.
