I am wondering if the Molybdenum appears to work through the mechanism of detoxing the aldehyde , or through its copper eliminating properties? Most people who suffer with candida are slow oxidizers, which typically have high copper and copper can cause many of the symptoms of candida. So by reducing the copper load through molybdenum supplementation, one is in fact increasing one’s oxidation rate, so one starts to have improved digestion and bowl function and improved energy levels. High dose in the range of 3,000 mg a day has the same effect on copper.
I have expressed my concerns about this before, and sorry to bring it up again, but i am just trying to get clear on this and would appreciate a discussion with people with background in nutrition and mineral interaction in particular.
I am reminded of many people who went on the mega dose Vitamin C protocol, and started feeling great as promised, only to end up hyperthyroid as a result. How long does the protocol recommend Molybdenum be taken?
Thank you. I am not knocking the program, just trying to understand it more fully so i can have confidence to implement it, especially since I have young kids as well, I don’t want to make them into guinea pigs. What doses of molybdenum would you advise for kids aged between 4 and 7 on this program?

You should be concerned about the molybdenum chelating minerals from the body and this is why I never was prescribed it by my naturopath.
