Molybdenum Glycinate

Ingredient common name

Molybdenum Glycinate

Liver detoxification*
Facilitates the metabolism of sulfite – support for sulfite sensitivity*

Patented ingredient name
TRAACS® Molybdenum glycinate chelate

Albion Laboratories, Inc.

Grown in
United States

Dietary sources
Legumes (beans, peas, lentils) are the richest sources; grains and nuts; the molybdenum content of vegetables is dependent on the soil the vegetables are grown in.
  • Superior absorption from this fully reacted amino acid chelate
  • Glycine, the amino acid in molybdenum glycinate, helps decrease the acidity of the small intestine, which improves the overall solubility and absorbability of the molybdenum.
  • Identification (via HPTLC)
  • Heavy metals
  • Microbes
