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
  • Detoxification
  • 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.

Customer Review

Real Quality

I've been taking molybdenum off and on for years to manage sulfur intolerance. I generally shy away from encapsulated molybdenum, as I haven't found it to be especially effective in the past. I decided to give this one a try and could tell that it was working within 24 hours of taking it. This will be a new staple in my supplement cupboard. ~Hannah.

Key Ingredients In Molybdenum

  • Molybdenum (as molybdenum glycinate chelate): Supports normal sulfite metabolism, detoxification, dental health, and iron utilization. The glycinate chelate form offers excellent bioavailability.

Why Molybdenum Works

Molybdenum is an essential cofactor for several enzymatic reactions in the body. The most well-known is sulfite oxidase (SUOX).

The enzyme sulfite oxidase (SUOX) breaks down sulfites into less problematic sulfates. SUOX enzyme function can be impaired due to genetic variations, molybdenum deficiency, or environmental factors. Without optimal SUOX function, sulfite levels can become elevated. High levels of sulfites can lead to side effects such as breathing issues, flushing, heart palpitations, headaches, and other symptoms associated with sulfite sensitivity.

If molybdenum levels are low and a person has SUOX gene variants, they can be more sensitive to sulfites and even to cysteine. Those who do not tolerate supplementation with cysteine, glutathione, and NAC, or who react to wine and other sulfite-rich foods, may benefit from molybdenum supplementation.

Certain foods contain high levels of sulfites, such as wine, bottled lime and lemon juice, dried fruits, and deli meats. Sulfites also come from sulfur-containing foods. Some amino acids turn into sulfites when you consume foods rich in sulfur-containing amino acids like cysteine. If you supplement with glutathione or NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine), these compounds also create cysteine and possibly higher sulfite levels in your body.

The body naturally converts homocysteine into cysteine with the help of two enzymes and vitamin B6. The body can do three things with cysteine. First, it can combine two cysteines to make cystine. Second, it can add glutamate and glycine to make glutathione. Last but not least, it can make sulfite. This is the most common path, known as the transsulfuration pathway. Sulfites are further metabolized into sulfates via the SUOX enzyme, which requires molybdenum.

While sulfites can be problematic, sulfates are needed for a multitude of reactions in the human body. Sulfates are the fourth most common anion in our blood. They prevent our blood from coagulating. They are also a primary detoxification agent. Your body conjugates (attaches) toxins to sulfates so they can be shuttled out of your body.

In addition to the SUOX enzyme, molybdenum is a cofactor for other critical enzymes, including aldehyde oxidase (AO) and xanthine oxidase (XO) enzymes.

As a cofactor for the AO enzyme, molybdenum supports healthy detoxification. It plays a major role in converting acetaldehyde into acetic acid. Acetaldehyde is a byproduct of fungal growth and alcohol consumption. Elevated levels can be problematic.

As a cofactor for the XO enzyme, molybdenum also supports purine metabolism via the oxidation of hypoxanthine to uric acid.

Molybdenum plays a role in healthy iron transportation and release. It is necessary for maintaining normal iron levels and utilization. This is due to its involvement in the enzymatic process that mobilizes iron from liver reserves. Iron also helps produce heme, a cofactor for the SUOX enzyme.

Molybdenum capsules by Seeking Health provides a potent amount of molybdenum (500 mcg) per single capsule serving. For a gentler formula (25 mcg) in a liquid format, try our SulfiteX Drops. It’s never been easier to support healthy sulfite metabolism and detoxification.

How to Use Molybdenum

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule daily with or without food or as directed by your healthcare professional.


This is a very potent dose of molybdenum. Do not exceed recommended dosing and consult your healthcare provider for extended use. Children and pregnant or breastfeeding/lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged. Keep out of reach of children.

How to Enhance Molybdenum


Consider Pulsing

Dr. Ben Lynch recommends using certain dietary supplements based on your need for them. Start with a partial serving and increase slowly over time to the full serving, only if needed. When you start feeling good, consider reducing the serving size, skipping days, or pausing supplementation. Then take again when you feel you need it (stressful day, traveling, chemical exposure, etc.), hence "pulsing." Work with your qualified healthcare practitioner to determine what's best for you.


Pairs Well With

Optimal Iron if iron supplementation is needed, as molybdenum plays a role in iron utilization. Iron also helps to produce heme, which is a cofactor for the SUOX enzyme. Optimal Liposomal Glutathione as molybdenum is needed to break down sulfites created from glutathione supplementation. Glutathione also supports normal hydrogen peroxide breakdown created by the SUOX enzyme during sulfite metabolism. NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) as molybdenum is needed to metabolize cysteine and sulfites produced during NAC supplementation.
