1. what exactly is molybdenum?

Molybdenum is an essential trace element. More specifically, it is a transition metal. You can find molybdenum everywhere in rocks and soils. There, the trace element is bound in molybdenum salts. Molybdenum performs important functions in the human body and has a total content of about 8-10 mg. Molybdenum is mainly found in the internal organs, skin and skeleton. Molybdenum is an important component of enzymes, which are essential for the production of genetic material (DNA and RNA). In addition, molybdenum is important for energy production and the breakdown of urea. The daily requirement of molybdenum is between 50 and 100 micrograms in women and in men.

    2) How to recognize a molybdenum deficiency?

    Molybdenum deficiency is very rare and is usually not diagnosed because the human body requires only very small amounts of molybdenum and there are usually adequate amounts in the diet. In cases where a molybdenum deficiency has been diagnosed, it can usually be treated by taking dietary supplements. Molybdenum deficiency may be indicated by various symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, headache, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. However, a definitive diagnosis of molybdenum deficiency can only be made through a blood or urine test that measures the levels of molybdenum in the body. If you suspect that you may have a molybdenum deficiency, you should see your doctor who can perform the necessary tests and recommend possible treatment options.
