Manganese plays a key role in keeping the bones healthy and developing the bone through its entire wear and tear process. It also helps in maintaining bones in all their strong glory.

In conjunction with other minerals like calcium, zinc, and copper, manganese ensures mineral density in the bones remain at an optimal level. This becomes especially important in senior adults where their bone density suffers a blow. According to several studies, men above the age of 50 are most likely to suffer from bone-related disorders.

Studies also report that consuming manganese along with calcium, zinc, and copper supports the spinal cord in older women and prevents their loss.

Another research showed that when women who suffered from weak bone supplemented with the above-given minerals, they found an improvement in their bone mass.

In conclusion, when manganese is consumed in conjunction with other minerals like calcium, zinc, and copper, it helps in increasing mineral density in the bones.



Antioxidants are important to the human body as they protect cells from damage through free radicals. These free radicals cause heart diseases, speed up the aging process and even contribute to cancer.

Known as the most powerful antioxidant, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) contains manganese as its key component. This particular antioxidant fights against the negative effects of free radicals and keeps the cells protected.

Studies have shown that lower level of antioxidants and SOD has been found to be linked to higher cholesterol levels and a higher risk of heart diseases in men.

Since manganese plays a huge role in increasing the activities of SOD, intaking manganese either through supplements or diet will help to keep chronic illnesses at bay.

Manganese helps make and activate some of the enzymes in the body. Enzymes are proteins that help the body carry out chemical reactions, such as breaking down food.

Manganese is found in a variety of foods, including:

- bread
- nuts
- breakfast cereals (especially wholegrain)
- green vegetables Ė such as peas










Vitamins are also essential to good health and a longer life, and supplements can help you maintain a higher level of fitness, when combined with a nutritional diet. Whether you are omnivorous, pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan.


It is usually better to get the nutrients you need from food, rather than a pill. Thatís because nutrient-dense foods contain other things that are good for you, like fiber.

Most older adults can get all the nutrients they need from foods. But if you arenít sure, always talk with your doctor or a registered dietitian to find out if you are missing any important vitamins or minerals. Your doctor or dietitian may recommend a vitamin or dietary supplement.

Itís important to be aware that some supplements can have side effects, such as increasing the risk of bleeding after an injury or changing your response to anesthesia during surgery. Supplements can also interact with some medicines in ways that might cause problems. For example, vitamin K can reduce the ability of the common blood thinner warfarin to prevent blood from clotting. If you do need to supplement your diet, your doctor or pharmacist can tell you what supplements and doses are safe for you.

When looking for supplements to buy, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of choices at the pharmacy or grocery store. Look for a supplement that contains the vitamin or mineral you need without a lot of other unnecessary ingredients. Read the label to make sure the dose is not too large. Avoid supplements with megadoses. Too much of some vitamins and minerals can be harmful, and you might be paying for supplements you donít need. Your doctor or pharmacist can recommend brands that fit your needs. This article is only a general guide.

You don't need weights to regain fitness, but resistance training will more quickly build up your ordinary strength following a period of inactivity. Terry will help you with light exercises and gradually work up to using weights if that is what you'd like. He will also plan a diet that you can live with, whether to gain muscle mass or to lose weight.





When we turn 30, we start to lose muscle mass Ė as much as 3 to 5 per cent per decade Ė while our metabolism simultaneously begins slowing down. Regular exercise or strength training can work to counteract this and help to keep age-related weight gain at bay. Turning back the clock. But there is little point in exercising to stay fit without a balanced and healthy diet. Training can be at home with an online coaching app.
