Manganese is most notably found in cereals, rice, nuts, and some teas. In the human body, it plays an important role as a cofactor for some enzyme systems. The recommended daily intake of manganese is currently not specified, but the US National Research Council estimates that a safe and adequate intake for an adult human is between 2 and 5 mg per day, while the EFSA estimates it to be between 1 to 10 mg per day.
Manganese contributes to:
- Normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Maintenance of normal bones
- Normal formation of connective tissue
- Protection of cells from oxidative stress
