Supplement facts (per capsule)
Selenium (as SelenoExcell® high selenium yeast)
Selenium by Seeking Health provides selenium in a natural complexed form called SelenoExcell®.
This form is better absorbed and retained in the body compared to inorganic forms of selenium, such as selenite. It is also a more complete, bioavailable form than other isolated organic forms on the market today, such as standalone selenomethionine. SelenoExcell® is a high-selenium yeast complex that contains multiple organic selenium compounds that work synergistically, making it one of the most researched and recommended forms of selenium available. Unlike inorganic forms of selenium, this form of selenium is not adversely affected by vitamin C.*
Selenium is an essential trace mineral that inhibits the oxidation of lipids (fats) and works together with vitamin E to assist in the production of antibodies and maintain healthy liver, pancreas, thyroid, and heart function. It also serves as an antioxidant by activating glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that helps protect cell membranes from free radicals. In addition, selenium may help support the body’s natural defenses against damage from exposure to certain environmental toxins. Adequate levels of selenium are essential for healthy immune responses. Selenium may play a role in the normal production of antibodies, proteins produced by the immune system to respond to foreign substances that may pose threats to the body.*
Selenium is required for the normal activity of the enzyme that converts the thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) to the biologically active thyroid hormone T3. This is especially important because this active form (T3) is the body’s primary hormonal regulator of metabolism and is important for normal growth and development.*
