Key Benefits and Actions
- Potent molybdenum supplement
- Supports sulfite metabolism
- Supports healthy detoxification
Who Needs Molybdenum
Do you get side effects from wine or dried fruits? You might be experiencing sulfite intolerance. The trace mineral molybdenum is needed to break down sulfites. High sulfite levels can trigger side effects, including headaches and flushing.
Molybdenum provides a potent 500 mcg of molybdenum glycinate chelate in a convenient capsule.
Molybdenum provides a potent dose of molybdenum compared to our SulfiteX Drops. Those experiencing SUOX gene challenges or dietary sulfite sensitivities may benefit from a higher amount of molybdenum support. The glycinate chelate form offers excellent bioavailability.
Molybdenum is an essential trace element needed for sulfur and sulfite metabolism. The sulfite oxidase (SUOX) enzyme breaks down sulfites into less problematic sulfates. Molybdenum is required as a cofactor for this biochemical reaction.
Some people experience side effects from consuming high-sulfite foods such as lime and lemon juice, dried fruits, and wine. Others with slow SUOX enzyme activity or molybdenum deficiency can also experience symptoms from high sulfur and sulfite foods. High sulfite levels in the body can cause headaches, sinus problems, skin issues, unwanted body odor, flushing, and other adverse effects.
In addition to the SUOX enzyme, molybdenum is a cofactor for other critical detoxification enzymes, including aldehyde oxidase (AO) and xanthine oxidase (XO). These enzymes help naturally break down certain drugs and potentially harmful compounds. Certain aldehydes, drugs, and alcohol must be broken down via these enzymes, which require molybdenum to function.
Molybdenum provides the cofactor needed by these enzymes in the form of molybdenum glycinate chelate.
Molybdenum supports healthy:
- Sulfite breakdown via the SUOX enzyme
- Dental Health
- Cellular health and normal cell proliferation
- Waste removal by the kidneys
- Iron utilization and metabolism
- Toxin breakdown in the liver
- Estradiol and progesterone metabolism
Molybdenum provides a potent serving of 500 micrograms (mcg) per single capsule serving. For a gentler amount, try our SulfiteX Drops. With this powerful tool in your arsenal, it’s easier than ever to support healthy sulfite metabolism and detoxification for optimal wellness.
