Potential Benefits: Molybdenum plays a role in a number of important bio-
It has shown some promise in animal trials, especially in reducing the side effects of certain cancer drugs on the lungs and heart. It works with Vitamin B2 to incorporate Iron into haemoglobin, and so supports production of red blood cells and used to treat inborn errors of metabolism (such as Wilson's disease) where the body cannot process Copper
Description: Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral, needed in very small quantities by almost all life forms. In the human body it is found in the bones, liver, and kidneys.
Serious research into the importance of Molybdenum has been carried out only in the last 20 years or so.
Evidence shows molybdenum is needed for optimal health, and lack of it triggers certain health problems.
Potential Side Effects: Other symptoms of molybdenum toxicity include dizziness, tiredness, and rashes. As molybdenum interferes with copper metabolism, too much of it can cause low red blood cell count (anaemia) or low white blood cell count, due to lack of copper.
Potential Interaction: Most people get enough molybdenum, if they eat foods from nutrient-
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 Sulphur intake can also reduce Molybdenum levels.
