This advanced, elemental, mineral formula contains manganese glycinate as a fully reacted amino acid chelate. This gives the advantage of an unvarying and uniform potency by maximising the manganese attached to the amino acid, helps optimising the intracelllular uptake.(1)
Fully reacted chelates are less likely to interact with food in the digestive tract.(2) They form stable complexes with the chosen mineral and their absorption is not pH dependent.(3,4,5)
Manganese supports normal bone growth and development and is a requirement for the synthesis of proteoglycans - an important structural component of cartilage and bone. It has a role in the metabolism of carbohydrate and amino acid, and helps supports normal energy metabolism.
Manganese is an important cofactor of the potent antioxidant superoxide dismutase. It may assist in protecting the body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Manganese is also is an important component of the metalloenzyme pyruvate decarboxylase.
The formula is complemented by synergistic nutrient vitamin B1 (thiamine). Thiamine facilitates the synthesis of important DNA precursors and supports healthy heart and nervous system function and helps convert carbohydrates into energy and assists in the maintenance of healthy heart and nerve function.
The InterClinical Professional "Trace Nutrients" range is exclusive to health care professionals trained in ingestive therapies, for practitioner dispensing only.
