Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 07, 2007


So this article suggests that manganese plays a role in nerves and collagen. Two factors that I am very, very interested in.

Manganese (Benefits & Deficiency Symptoms)

Manganese, also called the “brain mineral,” is important in the utilization of all mental facilities/functions. Though only found in trace amounts in the body, good health is impossible without it. Manganese increases resistance and recuperative ability and, like iron, aids in oxygen transfer from lungs to cells.

Manganese strengthens tendons, tissues, ligaments and linings in the outside of organs. “If the human body is well supplied with it (Manganese), various tissues, cells and nerves become more ductile, tensile and elastic.” (The Chemistry of Man by Bernard Jensen)

Manganese makes up part of a molecule known as mucopolysaccharides, which are used to form collagen, the strong fibrous connective material that builds tissue, bone and cartilage. This mesh of collagen is the framework on which calcium, magnesium and other bone-hardening minerals are deposited.

Manganese has a positive effect on the libido by increasing energy levels and the brain’s ability to receive and send messages. Manganese also helps the reproductive organs to work properly because of its effect on tissues and nerves. Production of sex hormones is aided by Manganese. Manganese can help reduce menstrual cramps and PMS. Manganese is stored half in the bones and the remainder in the liver, pancreas, pituitary gland and kidneys.
