38: MANGANESE

Although the element manganese forms a part of substances essential for body metabolism, known as enzymes, no definite deficiency has been recognized in humans. In animals, deficiency can lead to abnormalities of the developing skeleton, of balance, and of carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Manganese poisoning from food is very unlikely.



MANGANESE INTAKE

The safe and adequate range of intake for adults (U.S.A.) is 2500 to 5000 micrograms per day.
