Molybdenum

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 an adult has not been set by the EFSA. The US Food and Nutrition Board estimates the safe and adequate intake of molybdenum at between 75 and 250 µg daily for adults and older children. Long-term deficiency of molybdenum in the diet is associated with an intolerance for cysteine and methionine.

It has been proved that molybdenum contributes to the normal metabolism of sulfur amino acids. 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink contains 200 µg of molybdenum.

Enjoy Mana Powder and Mana Drink as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Mana is suitable for every healthy adult.
