Too much molybdenum?

    Right after starting a low sulfur diet to attempt to detox from ammonia and heavy metals, I felt like a new person. My attitude unbelievably changed to more positive and mindful. A week later and I am feeling pretty terrible, with energy, confidence, and outlook on everything on the opposite, negative end of the spectrum, and I am trying to figure out the cause.

    Would you guess I missing some essential proteins? I am vegan, so my diet has been very restrictive. Am I missing folate from greens? Or could it be something else dietary, like missing iron?

    Since I have been taking 1mg of molybdenum three times a day (which I know is high), can high molybdenum cause imbalances in the body? I'm wondering if this high dose could explain my current negative mood, even though it helped immensely for a few days.

    Main supplements are:
    1 mg molybdenum 3 times/day
    Hydrox B12 2000 mcg in morning
    Cheated magnesium 200 mg at lunch, and 200 mg at bed
    Liquid ionic zinc at night 36 mg
    B6 P5P 50 mg

    Sometimes take D3 and fish oil at night

    Supplements I've taken only once or twice:
    Chorellela 500mg
    L-Orthinine 500mg (got a deep relaxed feeling for a few days)
    L-Arginine 500mg
    Yucca 500 mg
    Charcoal 280 mg
    Manganese 8mg

    Main mutations:
    CBS C699T rs234706 AG +/-
    CBS A360A rs1801181 AG +/-
    MTHFR C677T rs1801133 AA +/+

    Other ones:

    A lot of molybdenum can deplete copper. A lot of magnesium can deplete calcium, iron, potassium and sodium. This is a good website for explaining all the nutrient agonists and antagonists:

    It seems like it's a depletion of copper. Thanks for that @helen1

    Years ago I could not get molybdenum locally, so bought it in quantity when I visited out-of-state relatives. A store employee accosted me to tell me how dangerous molybdenum was and that it could cause mental side effects. I do not recall now just what those side effects were. You might cut back on the molybdenum and see if your mood improves.
