Manganese vs. Magnesium
Manganese and magnesium are both minerals and micronutrients. While these two minerals sound very similar, each serves different functions in our body and has daily requirements for overall health. Manganese is a trace mineral, meaning your body doesn’t need much of it. Manganese is important for bone formation, blood clotting, immune function and much more! The majority of Americans meet the daily requirement of 1.8-2.3 mg per day through their diet, so deficiency is rare. On the other hand, most Americans do not consume enough magnesium. Magnesium is not a trace mineral because our bodies need significantly more from food, about 310-420 mg daily. Magnesium is essential for heart health as it helps with blood pressure control, heart rhythm regulation, nerve function and more! Check out the lists below for foods rich in manganese and magnesium.
