It tunes the male reproductive system, maintains the function of the prostate gland and the production of testosterone in men. Manganese helps in the synthesis of cartilage and in the development and maintenance of healthy bones. Manganese is vital for the production of glycoprotein’s which surround and protect our body’s cells from attacks of viruses.
