Molybdenum, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, delivers 500 mcg of elemental molybdenum per capsule.
Molybdenum is an essential trace element, and functions as a cofactor of various enzymes involved in the
detoxification of pyrimidines, purines, pteridines. Xanthine oxidase and xanthine dehydrogenase are two
important molybdoenzymes converting hypoxanthine to xanthine to uric acid. Molybdenum is also involved in
sulfur metabolism as a cofactor of sulfite oxidase which converts potentially toxic sulfite to sulfate. This
reaction is necessary for the normal metabolism of sulfur amino acids. Molybdenum is efficiently absorbed in
the stomach and the small intestine. The organs that retain most of the absorbed molybdenum are the liver
and kidney. Molybdenum metabolism is dynamic, and tissue turnover is high. Plasma levels are efficiently
regulated by the kidneys which readily excrete any excess molybdenum. Significant amounts of molybdenum
are also excreted via the bile.
Molybdenum may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake of
