(as Manganese Gluconate)
Manganese (Gluconate) by definition is: a hard, brittle, grayish-white metallic element. It is readily oxidized and forms an important component of certain alloys. If manganese is breathed in excess, in the form of dust or fumes, it can lead to a condition very much like Parkinson’s disease. Manganese is a mineral that is found in whole grains, cereals, fruits, vegetables, and tea. It is used as a supplement for diabetes, epilepsy (seizures), high cholesterol (blood fats), Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and schizophrenia. Manganese is also used for strains, sprains, and inflammation (soreness and swelling). Manganese is found in the body as a trace element and is essential for life.
