Abstract

The essentiality of manganese was established in 1931, when it was demonstrated that a deficit of it resulted in poor growth and impaired reproduction in rodents. Manganese deficiency can be a practical problem in the swine and poultry industries, and it may be a problem in some human populations. Conversely, manganese toxicity can be a significant human health concern. Here, literature related to manganese nutrition, metabolism, and metabolic function is reviewed.
