SELENIUM

Selenium protects normal cell function by supporting the body’s natural defenses and scavenging harmful free radicals.*

Antioxidant Support: Selenium is a natural antioxidant that delays the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids and preserves the elasticity of tissue. Selenium is required for the production of certain prostaglandins, which promote healthy blood flow. In synergy with vitamin E, selenium promotes healthy growth and fertility, and improves the function of certain energy producing cells. Selenium also plays a role in the synthesis of thyroid hormones and immune function.*

(selenomethionine only) is derived from Homoserine, which is produced by organic chemical synthesis. Selenomethionine serves as a storage form. The methionine is incorporated directly into proteins, releasing selenium as they are catabolized. Citrate (selenium citrate only) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. Ascorbyl palmitate (selenomethionine only) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
