Just like iron and magnesium, molybdenum is an integral mineral for the body. It is found in the soil of the earth and gets transferred into the human body through the food that is plant-based and through animal meat that comes from animals who have been fed on those plants. The molybdenum content present in various food items entirely depends on the amount of molybdenum present in the soil where that plant was grown.

The human body requires molybdenum in trace amounts and it is plentifully available in various food sources, due to which molybdenum deficiency is rare to find. 

A major function of molybdenum is to activate crucial enzymes and help them to break down amino acids. It works in combination with sulphite oxidase which catalyzes amino acids.

Foods Rich In Molybdenum:

- Legumes
- Lentils
- Whole grains
- Organ meat like liver and kidney
- Beans
- Cereals

Since molybdenum is sufficiently available through an average diet, molybdenum deficiency is an extremely rare condition. It is found as easily as in whole grains and water. 

A human body usually saves up molybdenum, and it requires only a few micrograms to function properly.

However, low levels of molybdenum in the body would impede the proper functioning of enzymes. This would further prevent the human body from breaking down and processing amino acids that contain sulphur.

Molybdenum deficiencies can be quite similar to the symptoms accompanied by sulphur toxicity. It includes issues in the production of uric acid along with a decrease in the processing of sulphur-containing amino acids.

Molybdenum is responsible for creating three essential enzymes which are aldehyde oxidase, sulphite oxidase, and xanthine oxidase.

Aldehyde oxidase works by breaking down a particularly toxic substance called aldehydes. It breaks it down into acid form so that it can get removed easily. If aldehydes get built up in the body, the toxicity it creates may lead to deadly diseases like Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís. A good way to reduce the build-up of aldehyde is to reduce the intake of alcohol and fermented food items which is a major factor contributing to its growth.

Breaks down aldehydes, which can be toxic to the body, into acids for removal. Alcohol and fermented foods are big sources of aldehydes, so those should be consumed in small amounts. A buildup of aldehydes may increase the chances of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimerís or Parkinsonís disease.

Sulphite oxidase prevents deadly sulphites build up in our body by breaking down and converting sulphites to sulphates.

Xanthine oxidase is responsible for breaking down purines into uric acid. Again low levels of uric acid which is caused by a deficiency in molybdenum may contribute to Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís disease. Further, xanthine oxidase controls the overall antioxidant levels in the blood. If the antioxidants level rises in the blood, xanthine oxidase raises an alert by pointing towards problems in the liver.










Vitamins are also essential to good health and a longer life, and supplements can help you maintain a higher level of fitness, when combined with a nutritional diet. Whether you are omnivorous, pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan.


It is usually better to get the nutrients you need from food, rather than a pill. Thatís because nutrient-dense foods contain other things that are good for you, like fiber.

Most older adults can get all the nutrients they need from foods. But if you arenít sure, always talk with your doctor or a registered dietitian to find out if you are missing any important vitamins or minerals. Your doctor or dietitian may recommend a vitamin or dietary supplement.

Itís important to be aware that some supplements can have side effects, such as increasing the risk of bleeding after an injury or changing your response to anesthesia during surgery. Supplements can also interact with some medicines in ways that might cause problems. For example, vitamin K can reduce the ability of the common blood thinner warfarin to prevent blood from clotting. If you do need to supplement your diet, your doctor or pharmacist can tell you what supplements and doses are safe for you.

When looking for supplements to buy, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of choices at the pharmacy or grocery store. Look for a supplement that contains the vitamin or mineral you need without a lot of other unnecessary ingredients. Read the label to make sure the dose is not too large. Avoid supplements with megadoses. Too much of some vitamins and minerals can be harmful, and you might be paying for supplements you donít need. Your doctor or pharmacist can recommend brands that fit your needs. This article is only a general guide.

You don't need weights to regain fitness, but resistance training will more quickly build up your ordinary strength following a period of inactivity. Terry will help you with light exercises and gradually work up to using weights if that is what you'd like. He will also plan a diet that you can live with, whether to gain muscle mass or to lose weight.





When we turn 30, we start to lose muscle mass Ė as much as 3 to 5 per cent per decade Ė while our metabolism simultaneously begins slowing down. Regular exercise or strength training can work to counteract this and help to keep age-related weight gain at bay. Turning back the clock. But there is little point in exercising to stay fit without a balanced and healthy diet. Training can be at home with an online coaching app.
