Molybdenum 500 mcg, 90 vegetarian capsules
What is Molybdenum? Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral. In the human body it is found in the bones, liver, and kidneys. Molybdenum plays a role in a number of important bio-chemical processes, like waste processing in the kidneys, development of the nervous system, and the activation of enzymes that are involved in breaking down food to produce energy.*
Molybdenum helps with metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It plays an important role in the enzyme process for the use of iron in the body, by mobilizing iron from the liver reserves.* Molybdenum is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and excreted in the urine. It may help enhance a general feeling of well-being.*

Molybdenum Deficiency. Most people get enough molybdenum, if they eat foods from nutrient-rich soil, as only a small amount of it is needed. Deficiency rarely happens, except for example, where there is a genetic problem that prevents the body from absorbing molybdenum from food, or in cases of prolonged intravenous feeding. While deficiency is rare, those whose diets rely mainly on processed or refined foods might not be getting enough of it for optimal health.* High sulfur intake can also reduce molybdenum levels.*
