Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral. In the human body, molybdenum 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 may also help support normal metabolism of fats and carbohydrates.* It is necessary for maintain normal iron levels and utilization in the body due to its involvement in the enzymatic process that mobilizes iron form the liver reserves.*
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 molybdenum for optimal health.* High sulphur intake can also reduce molybdenum levels.*
