Molybdenum is an essential mineral in the body, just like iron and magnesium. Studies have shown that your body doesn't absorb it well from foods. Molybdenum is vital for many processes in your body.

Once you eat it, it is absorbed into your blood from your stomach and gut, then carried to your liver, kidneys and other areas. Some of this mineral is stored in the liver and kidneys, but most of it is converted into a molybdenum cofactor. Any excess molybdenum is then passed in urine.

The molybdenum cofactor activates four essential enzymes, which are biological molecules that drive chemical reactions in the body. Below are the four enzymes:

  • Sulfite oxidase: Converts sulfite to sulfate, preventing the dangerous buildup of sulfites in the body.
  • Aldehyde oxidase: Breaks down aldehydes, which can be toxic to the body. Also, it helps the liver break down alcohol and some drugs, such as those used in cancer therapy.
  • Xanthine oxidase: Converts xanthine to uric acid. This reaction helps break down nucleotides, the building blocks of DNA, when they're no longer needed. They can then be excreted in the urine.
  • Mitochondrial amidoxime reducing component (mARC): This enzyme's function isn't fully understood, but it's thought to remove toxic byproducts of metabolism.

Molybdenum's role in breaking down sulfites is especially important.

Sulfites are found naturally in foods and also sometimes added as a preservative. If they build up in the body, they can trigger an allergic reaction that can include diarrhea, skin problems or even breathing difficulties.
