Manganese is an essential nutrient that supports joint health, bone health, nervous system function, and immune function.
The essential nutrient manganese occurs naturally in the body. Trace amounts of it are found in our kidneys, liver, bones, and pancreas. But the amount that occurs in your body— about 20 mg— isn’t quite enough. That’s why it’s important to introduce manganese through natural food and supplement sources like seeds, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and (our favorite!) Re-Lyte Immunity.
The body wouldn't be able to perform a wide variety of essential functions without manganese, including breaking down protein, carbs, and cholesterol and mounting a proper immune response. Manganese also works to fortify our joints, support brain function, aid nerve function, and help our bones, tendons, and muscles stay strong.
The manganese we use in Re-Lyte Immunity is specifically referred to as manganese gluconate. It is a GMO-free salt made up of manganese and gluconic acid. It's an easily absorbed form of manganese, which makes it ideal for supplements and dietary products.
We included manganese along with the other Re-Lyte Immunity ingredients to keep our bodies, minds, and (most importantly) our immune systems in tip-top shape.
