Can you drink beer, vodka and other alcohol and not get a nasty headache?
But if you drink red wine, you best have some motrin or wet cold socks on your feet the next day to pull you through? You're not alone.
Red wine headaches are no fun. The cause is likely due to the sulfites put in them. A professor of mine practiced in the Napa Valley so she saw patients present with red wine headaches all...the...time.
What did she do for them?
She knew she couldn't tell wine makers and wine lovers to stop drinking wine. So she dug deep and looked for the cause of red wine headaches.
She found one.
She said it worked all the time. Instead of going to the supplement shelves and buying a multi with molybdenum in there, she recommend getting straight up molybdenum as the amount in a multi is not enough to replenish a deficiency.
Molybdenum is not the most absorbable mineral on the planet - far from actually. With the flagrant digestive weakness people now face due to antacids, stress and crappy absorption period, she recommended a liquid form of molybdenum.
A few drops a day for a couple months should allow people to once again drink their loved red wine and not get a nasty headache. She recommended about 150 mcg a day for a month - ballpark. Careful though as if you take too much, an excess of any nutrient can cause havoc. You may want to ask your doctor to evaluate your molybdenum level - which is a simple draw obtaining your plasma and red blood cells.
Caution: If you are highly sensitive to sulfites, avoid them always. You may be deficient in molybdenum but you also may have some other hyperactive immune issue going on - perhaps low in selenium also. Talk with your doctor.
If you have gout, do not take molybdenum.
