Molybdenum in food occurs most often in the form of molybdate and is a cofactor for some enzymes. Good sources of molybdenum are leafy vegetables, sorghum, certain legumes, wheat germ, milk, eggs, root vegetables, and some fish.
The recommended daily intake for adults has not yet been established by the EFSA. The US Food and Nutrition Board estimates a safe and adequate intake of molybdenum to be between 75 and 250 mcg daily for adults and older children. Long-term deficiency of molybdenum is associated with an intolerance for cysteine and methionine.
- Molybdenum has been shown to contribute to the normal metabolism of sulfur amino acids.
