Molybdenum has been identified as an essential trace element in humans, occurring as a cofactor in three important enzymatic reactions – xanthine oxidase/dehydrogenase, aldehyde oxidase, and sulfite oxidase.* The first two enzymatic reactions play a role in the liver's detoxification of environmental toxins, certain drugs, estradiol, and progesterone.* 

Sulfite oxidase, the most important molybdenum-dependent enzyme in humans, oxidizes sulfite to sulfate, the final step in the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids. Sulfites are frequently found in wine and in food preservatives used in meat, fish, salad bar items, and dehydrated fruits and vegetables. Sulfite 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 diarrhea.* Because molybdenum, as an essential cofactor for sulfite oxidase, can enhance sulfite metabolism, supplementation may benefit some sulfite-sensitive individuals.*
