Very Low Risk
It is an essential trace element. Daily requirements are 50 mcg for lactating women. Many foods contain molybdenum: legumes, cereals, nuts, vegetables, meat, milk, eggs... (NIH 2022)
At the date of the last update, we found no published data on its excretion in breast milk.
Both molybdenum deficiency and poisoning are very rare.
A moderate consumption of molybdenum without exceeding the daily requirements is compatible with lactation.
We do not have alternatives for Molybdenum since it is relatively safe.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.
Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.
Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
