Molybdenum is an important mineral element now recognized as an essential catalyst for 3 cellular enzymes needed for the breakdown of potentially harmful compounds, normally produced in the body or introduced into the body via food and water. These enzymes are:
Aldehyde oxidase: This enzyme plays an essential role in converting acetaldehyde (a waste product of Candida albicans fungus) into acetic acid for disposal, or into acetyl coenzyme A, a compound we use for energy production. Acetaldehyde can be produced from threonine, ethanol (from alcohol), or from the metabolism of carbohydrate in yeast (eg. Candida). Excessive levels of Candida in the body (as a result of the consumption of refined sugar and antibiotics) will create excessive levels of acetaldehyde. Without adequate levels of Molybdenum, Iron, and vitamin B2, our breakdown system is unable to do its job. When this occurs, one may begin to feel its effects such as fragrance sensitivities, brain fog and occasional fatigue.
Xanthine oxidase: An enzyme that is created by the body to eliminate purines. The purine category includes compounds such as DNA and RNA nucleic acids adenine and guanine, hypoxanthine, xanthine, theobromine, caffeine, and uric acid. It is essential that these compounds be dismantled and excreted upon reaching the end of their useful life. Molybdenum helps to accomplish this process.
Sulfite oxidase: This enzyme converts disruptive sulfites to useful sulfates. This includes internally generated sulfites created in the breakdown of sulfur containing amino acids, as well as sulfites we may be exposed to via our environment or foods consumed that have been preserved with sulfites.
Additionally, Molybdenum appears to support other biological processes in conjunction with iron.
Our ability to acquire adequate levels of Molybdenum from dietary sources can be quite problematic. Eidon solves this problem with our highly bioavailable liquid ionic Molybdenum.
Food High in Molybdenum:
Organically grown dark green leafy vegetables, cauliflower, whole grains, potatoes, legumes, brewers yeast, and organ meats.
Eidon Liquid Minerals are All Natural, Highly Bioavailable and contain NO sugars, starch, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or animal by-products. Vegan and Gluten-Free. Eidon uses the finest ingredients known to us in the formulation of our unique preparations. Out of respect for all life, we do not test - nor have we ever tested - our products on animals.
Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!
