Molybdenum

Molybdenum is an enzyme and probably one you have never heard about. I doubt there are many parents out there saying “you need to eat your beans to get molybdenum”. This enzyme helps a lot with energy production, digestion, and excretion. Enzymes are the workhorse and powerhouse of our bodies. Nutrients are like the building materials on a worksite and enzymes are the construction workers.

A deficiency of molybdenum is quite rare as our bodies need a small amount to function.
