Did you know:
Molybdenum is present in a variety of foods, including liver, grains, leafy vegetables, nuts, peas, lentils and beans.
Levels of the mineral in plant sources vary according to the molybdenum content of the soil in which the plants grow.
Typically, your body contains only trace amounts of molybdenum. In most cases, recommended daily intake of the mineral for adults is 45 mcg. Supplemental forms of molybdenum are marketed under such names as ammonium molybdate and sodium molybdate.
