  • Advanced Form of Selenium.

    As an essential cofactor of glutathione peroxidase‚ selenium is an important antioxidant. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins‚ which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system‚ DNA repair‚ and the detoxification of heavy metals. High doses of vitamin C (over one gram) may enhance the absorption of selenium. This mineral is best taken in conjunction with antioxidant supplements‚ such as vitamins C or E.

    Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (SeMC) is a naturally occurring seleno-amino acid that is synthesized by plants such as garlic and broccoli. SeMC is an organoselenium compound and also more bioabsorbable than other forms. Unlike selenomethionine‚ which is incorporated into proteins in place of methionine‚ SeMC is not incorporated into any proteins ... so it is fully available for the synthesis of selenium-containing enzymes‚ such as glutathione peroxidase.

    Best form of selenium

    Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine is the best form of selenium for the body to recognize & utilize. I get no noticeable benefit when taking selenomethionine but when I take Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine I have a greater feeling of well being. It is hard to find this form of selenium on its own with nothing else added in the capsule. Please continue to keep this one in stock.


    Pros

      Gluten free Great Price

    Cons

      none

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Disappointed

    I recently purchased this item and noticed that they changed the formula and added rice flour. I am disappointed because the previous formula was working for me and now I can no longer take the product due to the rice flour. I am looking for another product with Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine and am finding it hard to find.


    Pros

      I like that it is Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine.

    Cons

      I dont like that it has rice flour in it.
