Conclusions

The results suggest that diets very low in molybdenum do not alter copper metabolism in young men and that dietary molybdenum intake in amounts up to 1490μg/d does not influence copper metabolism. In addition, copper status was maintained in both groups on a copper intake of 1.62mg/d for 120 days.
