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.
Although we may only need small amounts of this trace mineral, copper is very important to our overall health. The primary function of copper in the body is to serve as a constituent of enzymes with catalyze the formation of hemoglobin, help manufacture the protein collagen, assist in the healing of wounds and help maintain the sheath around nerve fibers. One of copper’s most vital roles is to help cells use iron. Like iron, copper is needed in many reactions related to respiration and energy release. The best food sources include legumes, whole grains, seafood, nuts, and seeds.
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.
