What does molybdenum do?
Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral needed for the proper function of certain enzyme-dependent processes, including the metabolism of iron.

Preliminary evidence indicates that molybdenum, through its involvement in detoxifying sulfites, might reduce the risk of sulfite-reactive asthma attacks.1 However, a physician should be involved in the evaluation and treatment of sulfite sensitivity.

Where is molybdenum found?
The amount of molybdenum in plant foods varies significantly and is dependent upon the mineral content of the soil. The best sources of this mineral are beans, dark green leafy vegetables, and grains. Hard tap water can also supply molybdenum to the diet. Molybdeum is also available as a supplement.

Molybdenum has been used in connection with the following condition
(refer to the individual health concern for complete information):

Health Concerns


        Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
        Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
        For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support and/or minimal health benefit.

Who Is likely to be deficient of molybdenum?
Although molybdenum is an essential mineral, no deficiencies have been reported in humans.

How much molybdenum is usually taken?
No recommended dietary allowance (RDA) has been established for molybdenum. The estimated range recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board as safe and adequate is 75–250 mcg per day for adults.

Are there any side effects or interactions with molybdenum?
Molybdenum is needed to convert purine to uric acid, and excessive intake could, in rare cases, increase uric acid levels and potentially trigger gout. Molybdenum interferes with the absorption of copper; long-term supplementation with molybdenum could, in theory, result in copper deficiency. Molybdenum has been reported to cause psychosis in a patient taking 300 to 800 mcg per day for 18 days. This report is as yet unsubstantiated by any other human or animal research.2

At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with molybdenum.
