Main Functions

Manganese is used in bone formation, muscle coordination, nervous system function and is involved in several enzyme reactions. It is also used, along with vitamin K, to promote blood clotting.

Deficiency Symptoms
Deficiencies are rare, as manganese is widely available in the food supply. However, symptoms may include seizures, epilepsy, poor muscle coordination, facial twitching, bone deformities and general weakness. Manganese deficiencies in children may lead to stunted growth and development.

Toxicity Symptoms
An excess of manganese interferes with iron absorption, which can lead to iron-deficiency anemia. It can also cause delusions, insomnia, depression and impotence.
