Biotics Research Mo-Zyme - 100 tabs
Biotics Reserch's Mo-Zyme supplies 50 mcg of molybdenum, an essential trace element, as a whole food, phytochemically bound vegetable culture. Molybdenum is required for the activity of certain enzymes such as sulfite oxidase, which converts sulfite to sulfate.
Mo-Zyme is a source of naturally occurring molybdenum from vegetable culture. Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral that is a component of the enzymes xanthine oxididase, sulfite oxidase, and aldehyde oxidase. These enzymes are responsible for the conversion of xanthine and hypoxanthine to uric acid, conversion of sulfite to sulfate, and detoxification of several harmful organic molecules, particularly in the liver. This element is also required for the metabolism of iron, the metabolism of fat, and promotes normal cell function. Molybdenum deficiency may result from rapid weight loss, inadequate nutrition, or intestinal malabsorption, and can lead to an intolerance of sulfur-containing amino acids or increased sensitivity to MSG and aromatic compounds. Low serum levels of iron which have been unresponsive to iron supplementation, and low serum uric acid levels are both clinical indicators of molybdenum need. Lastly, when patients complain that all supplements tend to trigger nausea, molybdenum use should be considered.
