Optimal Molybdenum by Seeking Health
Seeking Health’s Optimal Molybdenum contains 25 mcg of molybdenum per serving, in the mild form of molybdenum glycinate chelate. The supplement comes in a handy liquid form that makes dosing easy. Molybdenum is one of the essential trace elements that we need in small quantities every day to function properly. It contributes to a normal sulfur amino acid metabolism, among other functions. The supplement is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans and is free from the most common allergens, such as milk, eggs, fish, tree nuts, peanut yeast and soy. The recommended amount is one drop per day, unless otherwise advised by a health professional.
The trace element molybdenum
Molybdenum is one of the lesser known minerals and it is a trace element that has only recently been considered essential. It is involved in many processes in the body and contributes to the normal sulfur amino acid metabolism, among other functions. In addition, molybdenum is part of a number of different enzymes involved in energy metabolism and in the build-up and degradation of bodily proteins. The trace element is especially abundant in cereals, legumes and nuts; organ meats, milk and eggs are also good sources of molybdenum. The percentages of molybdenum in food depend on the molybdenum content and the acidity of the soil on which it is grown. In some places the molybdenum levels in the soil are low. As with most newly discovered trace elements, no recommended daily allowance has yet been set for molybdenum, although it has been established by the EU that doses of up to 600 mcg of molybdenum per day are considered safe for adults.
Evolution of epigenetics
In recent years, researchers have increasingly agreed that our DNA, or our genetic predisposition, is strongly influenced by environmental factors. For a long time it was thought that we could learn all about DNA if we just identified the over 25,000 genes. It has now become clear that the way in which our genes are expressed is not fixed, but that this is controlled by 'epigenomes': switches that can turn DNA 'on' or 'off', comparable to software that runs a computer. Epigenomes can be influenced by diet and other environmental factors, including lifestyle and environment. Epigeneticists study the changes in gene expression that occur at the epigenetic level. Epigenetics, then, is about changes in gene expression, without changes in the DNA sequence. It is a science that has evolved strongly in recent years and that focuses in particular on the process of methylation: the most important epigenetic process that takes place in our body.

The Methylation Process
The methylation process is one of the most important and most intriguing biochemical processes in our body. Currently a lot of research is being done with several studies pointing out that there is a probable link between the ability to methylate and health. The process of methylation takes place trillions of times every minute in all cells of our body and affects, among other systems, energy production, DNA regeneration, hormone production and repair work. Technically, methylation is a controlled transfer of a methyl group to primarily proteins, amino acids, enzymes and DNA. In addition, substances able to donate a methyl group are called methyl donors, including B vitamins, vitamin C, biotin, zinc, folic acid and betaine. Methyl groups facilitate the on-and-off switches of our DNA and thus play an important role in the gene expression of our DNA. This makes them one of the most researched molecules in epigenetics.
Epigenetics & Seeking Health
The term epigenetics was coined in 1942 by biologist Conrad Waddington in an attempt to interpret the phenomenon in which genes, under the influence of environmental factors, can be switched on and off. In epigenetic modifications, the function of a gene changes without changing its code, as when a piece of music is played by different musicians; the same notes are on the sheet, but they sound different. For example, two people who are genetically identical can still be very different epigenetically. This has been a guiding principle for Seeking Health’s Dr. Ben Lynch. By detecting the markers around the DNA that can turn genes on or off and influence them with the help of nutrition, supplements and lifestyle adjustments, Lynch argues that we can 'clean up our dirty genes', as it were, and can influence our gene expression.
About Seeking Health
Seeking Health was founded by Dr. Ben Lynch, who in 2018, after years of research, wrote the book Dirty Genes. Lynch received his doctorate in natural medicine from Bastyr University in Washington, DC, and helped thousands of clients, doctors and health professionals worldwide gain insights from epigenetics to optimize their health the holistic way. Lynch, currently the most consulted expert in epigenetics, is convinced that our genetic destiny is not fixed. Rather, through the right diet and lifestyle we can interact with our genes to realize our body’s full genetic potential.
