Seeking Health Optimal MSM Plus Molybdenum is uniquely formulated to assist detoxification pathways. Molybdenum is added to increase the effectiveness of the liver's sulfation detoxification pathway. Added Molybdenum may reduce symptoms of gas and bloating caused by MSM.
MSM Plus Molybdenum is used to improve detoxification, improve the health of hair, skin and nails, reduce muscle soreness and pain and improve circulation due to MSM's ability to open the arteries wider via vasodilation. 100 veg caps
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring, organic sulfur-containing compound providing a ready source of dietary sulfur that the body can use as needed.
Sulfur is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body, and is required for:
Sulfur must be continually replenished for optimal nutrition and health.
MSM is found in small amounts in food and throughout nature. MSM can be incorporated into body proteins or used in metabolism in several important ways.
Although small amounts of MSM are found in fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and unpasteurized milk, dietary sources do not supply adequate MSM to serve as a reliable source of organic sulfur.
This unique sulfur compound has no sulfur odor, is exceptionally well-tolerated, and can be used liberally as needed. Added molybdenum aids sulfur metabolism.
Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral found in the human body in the bones, liver, and kidneys. Molybdenum plays a role in a number of important bio-chemical processes, like waste processing in the kidneys, development of the nervous system, and the activation of enzymes that are involved in breaking down food to produce energy.
Molybdenum helps with metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It plays an important role in the enzyme process for the use of iron in the body, by mobilizing iron from the liver reserves. Molybdenum is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and excreted in the urine. It helps prevent anemia and enhance general feeling of well-being.
Benefits of Molybdenum
Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

I have taken MSM in the past but not seen good results until taking MSM with Molybdenum. I have had less gas and bloating and my nails are looking much better. I think the added molybdenum has made the difference. I've read many good things about MSM so it truly is a good supplement to add. (Posted on 10/17/12)
