Thorne Research Manganese Bisglycinate supports healthy ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles. Well absorbed manganese which is necessary for the body's antioxidant. Manganese tends to concentrate in the mitochondria, as well as in the bones, liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is an essential component of healthy carbohydrate metabolism, reproductive function, and skeletal and cartilage development. Also supports the function of antioxidants as an essential cofactor for superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that protects cell membranes from oxidative damage. Manganese is a critical element in two metalloenzymes - pyruvate decarboxylase and superoxide dismutase - both of which are involved in energy production and immune function. It also activates various enzymes that facilitate the synthesis of protein and DNA in the production of mucopolysaccharides that are found in cartilage.
