Bioavailable Selenomethionine providing 200mcg of L-Selenomethionine per capsule. Selenomethionine, seleniuim chelated to the amino acid methionine, is one of the most readily absorbable forms of selenium and one of the forms that occurs in nature.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral that can easily be lacking in our modern diet. It plays a vital role in the body and contributes to:
• The protection of cells from oxidative stress
• The normal function of the immune system
• The maintenance of normal hair and nails
• Normal spermatogenesis (the production of sperm)
Selenium has powerful protective properties itself, as well as being an essential cofactor nutrient for the production of glutathione peroxidase – the body’s “master antioxidant”.
