  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    Manganese supplements are used to increase the amount of manganese in the bodies of people with a deficiency. Manganese is an important mineral that aids in key bodily functions. These include bone growth and the breaking down of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Manganese supplements may be used to treat conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis (brittle bones), epilepsy, and high cholesterol, which are characterized by a lack of manganese.
