    I'm taking a mineral supplement that contains 100 mcg of molybdenum. I'm taking the supplement for the iodine and selenium (thyroid issues) as well as for the molybdenum and manganese which is supposed to help sulfur metabolism (CBS defunct).

    The RDA for molybdenum is 45 mcg....but the supplement contains 100 mcg and I'm sure I get a lot from food as well. Is this safe?

    I'd prefer not to have to take zinc, selenium, and iodine separately if this is not safe but whatever...

    This is the supplement I use:

    Pure Encapulations Trace Minerals 60's
    iodine (potassium iodide)............................................................. 100 mcg
    zinc (picolinate) ............................................................................... 15 mg
    selenium (selenomethionine).......................................................... 70 mcg
    copper (glycinate) .............................................................................. 1 mg
    manganese (citrate) ........................................................................... 2 mg
    chromium (picolinate) .................................................................. 200 mcg
    molybdenum (as TRAACS® molybdenum glycinate chelate)........... 100 mcg
    boron (glycinate)................................................................................1 mg
    vanadium (as bis-glycinato oxo vanadium) ................................... 250 mcg
    silica (from Bambusa vulgaris (bamboo) extract (stem)) ................... 10 mg
    ascorbyl palmitate (fat-soluble vitamin C) ........................................ 10 mg
    (hypo-allergenic plant fiber added to complete capsule volume requirements)

    other ingredients: rice flour

    Safe. I'm taking 450mcg molybd twice a day: 900mcg. I've tried higher than that for dealing w/ sulfur issues, but more did not help, so I resumed this level. You might search for comments by @aaron_c who's posted a number of times about molybd.
