Superoxide Dismutase Supplements: Not Absorbed?

Superoxide dismutase is an antioxidant metalloenzyme found in mammals. There are two isoforms of superoxide dismutase, one requires copper and zinc to function, whereas the other requires manganese. While the copper and zinc isoform is found mainly in the cytosol … Continue reading

Manganese: Congenital defects

  Minerals present in the soil and are taken up by plants through their roots with water. Animals eat the plants and absorb the minerals to their plasma. A number of minerals are classed as essential in human nutrition, which … Continue reading

Manganese Absorption: Biochemical Individuality

anganese is required in humans as a co-factor for the enzymes pyruvate carboxylase, arginase, prolidase, glucosyl transferase, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase is of interest nutritionally because it is an enzyme that is important for antioxidant defences and … Continue reading

Is Magnesium Protective Against Type 2 Diabetes?

An inverse association between magnesium and type 2 diabetes has been reported from some studies. For example, researchers1 have used a cohort study of 17,592 Japanese subjects aged 40 to 65 years to investigate the association between magnesium intake and … Continue reading

More on Manganese Absorption

Manganese is a trace mineral needed in humans for the enzymes prolidase, glucosyl transferase, arginase, superoxide dismutase, pyruvate carboxylase and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase. Manganese may also bind to ATP and ADP to prevent cyclic AMP accumulation in cells. Manganese deficiency is … Continue reading

Nutrient Losses During Processing

Loss of minerals and vitamins during processing of whole foods is well reported and is likely one of the reasons that research shows that consumption of whole grain food provides health benefits when compared to refined cereals. For example, researchers1 … Continue reading

Manganese Deficiency

Manganese is an essential element in humans, with deficiency being characterised by nausea, growth retardation, skeletal abnormalities, decreases hair growth, impaired reproductive function, impaired glucose tolerance and low blood cholesterol concentrations. Manganese is essential because it is needed for the … Continue reading
