Sodium Molybdate (Molybdenum)

Sodium Molybdate is added to foods to provide a source of Molybdenum.

Molybdenum is an essential trace element for virtually all life forms. It functions as a cofactor for a number of enzymes that catalyze important chemical transformations in the global carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur cycles. Molybdenum-dependent enzymes are not only required for human health, but also for the health of our ecosystem.

The only documented case of acquired molybdenum deficiency occurred in a patient with Crohn's disease on long-term total parenteral nutrition without molybdenum added. The patient developed rapid heart and respiratory rates, headache, night blindness, and ultimately became comatose. The patient's condition improved and the amino acid intolerance disappeared when the diet was supplemented with molybdenum at 160 mcg/day.

Molybdenum in nutritional supplements is generally in the form of sodium molybdate or ammonium molybdate.
