  • Selenium is essential to the healthy functioning of your body. Selenium acts as an antioxidant‚ which means that it neutralizes the harmful effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that can kill or change the structure of your cells; these altered cells are believed to cause health problems.

    Free radicals occur naturally in our bodies as the result of oxidation‚ but exposure to pollutants like tobacco smoke and can increase their levels. Though your body produces antioxidants on its own‚ its production declines as you get older. Fortunately‚ selenium can boost antioxidant production at all stages of life.

    In addition to being a potent ally in the fight against free radicals‚ selenium can also support your immune system and thyroid glands. This is particularly important‚ because your immune system is responsible for protecting your body from harmful bacteria and viruses. Your thyroid gland is responsible for managing your metabolism‚ providing your cells with all the energy that they need to function. A selenium deficiency can negatively affect both of these functions‚ making you more susceptible to infections and other health problems.

    Drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes can cause your selenium levels to drop. Your selenium levels might also be low if you take hormonal birth control. If your selenium levels are insufficient for whatever reason‚ you might want to consider taking a supplement like Selenium (Citrate) by Pure Encapsulations. Each vegetable capsule provides 200 mcg of selenium‚ in the form of highly bioavailable selenium citrate.

    When taken at the recommended daily dosage of one capsule daily‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations’ Selenium Citrate should last for approximately two months.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypo-allergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Yeast Free

    I needed selenium for my thyroid but I cannot have yeast or eggs. Most selenium is derived from yeast. This was the only one I could find that was yeast free.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
