Molybdenum Glycinate 60 caps
This key trace mineral promotes liver detoxification and benefits sulphite-sensitive individuals*
Molybdenum, as a cofactor for sulphite metabolism, benefits individuals with sulphite sensitivity.* Molybdenum Glycinate is a well-absorbed chelate.
Molybdenum is a cofactor in three important enzymatic reactions – xanthine oxidase/dehydrogenase, aldehyde oxidase, and sulphite oxidase. The
first two enzymatic reactions play a role in the liver's detoxification of environmental toxins, certain drugs, estradiol, and
progesterone. Because molybdenum – as an essential cofactor for sulphite oxidase – enhances sulphite metabolism, supplementation with
molybdenum glycinate benefits individuals who suffer sensitivity to sulphites used in meat, fish, salad bar items, and dehydrated fruits and
vegetables. Thorne's Molybdenum Glycinate is a highly absorbable form of molybdenum.
Sulphite sensitivity can manifest in a number of ways, such as wheezing, chest tightness, coughing, shortness of breath, flushing, itching, hives, swelling of eyes, hands and feet, nausea, headache, and diarrhoea. Sulphite oxidase, the most important molybdenum-dependent enzyme in humans, oxidizes sulphite to sulphate, the final step in the metabolism of sulphur-containing amino acids.
Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health professional.
