What is Manganese?

Manganese is often confused with magnesium, or worse, gets no attention at all for what it does to support good health. It’s an essential mineral involved in bone formation and metabolism of amino acids, fats, carbohydrates, and cholesterol. You need manganese to help form collagen, a connective tissue that holds your body together, supports bone and joint health, and keeps muscles and skin taut.*
