What is manganese? A trace mineral essential for the body to metabolize fats and carbohydrates. In the body, it is found mostly in the bones and glands and is a cofactor for many enzymes, helping to facilitate dozens of metabolic processes. Manganese requirements are low, and plant foods such as nuts, whole grains, and green leafy vegetables contain significant amounts of this trace mineral. Deficiencies are therefore unlikely.
Most of the phosphorus in the body is in the bones and teeth. Phosphorus helps maintain acid-base balance in the blood, as part of the genetic material in cells, assists in energy metabolism and is part of cell membranes. Deficiencies of phosphorus are unknown.
Vitamin E has benefits that go beyond hair, skin and nails. Vitamin E, a fat-soluble, is good for our hearts and blood vessels. This particular vitamin is found only in plant based foods such as certain oils, nuts, grains, and fruits. It naturally fights free-radicals and inflammation which makes it naturally the anti-aging vitamin. Did you know vitamin E is good for your eyes? Absorbing our vitamins from our food is always best, but a good supplement is a viable alternative.
