Manganous Oxide is an inorganic compound with chemical formula MnO. It forms green crystals. The compound is produced on a large scale as a component of fertilizers and food additives.
- Together with manganese sulfate, MnO is a component of fertilizers and food additives. Many thousands of tons are consumed annually for this purpose.
- Other uses include: a catalyst in the manufacture of allyl alcohol, ceramics, paints, colored glass, bleaching tallow and textile printing
- Taking manganese by mouth or giving manganese intravenously (by IV) helps to treat or prevent low manganese levels in the body.
- Also, taking manganese by mouth along with other vitamins and minerals can promote growth in children who have low levels of manganese.
- Manganese is LIKELY SAFE for most adults when taken by mouth in amounts up to 11 mg per day. However, people who have trouble getting rid of manganese from the body, such as people with liver disease, may experience side effects when taking less than 11 mg per day.
- Taking more than 11 mg per day by mouth is POSSIBLY UNSAFE for most adults.
- Manganese is LIKELY UNSAFE when inhaled by adults for long periods of time. Excess manganese in the body can cause serious side effects, including symptoms resembling Parkinson’s disease, such as shaking (tremors).
