Selenium (200 mcg) (100 caps). Organically bound selenium from l-selenomethionine. Important trace mineral for function of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase protecting against free radical damage, especially in cell membranes. In this role, it supports and protects immune function, and plays a role in the development and function of white blood cells. Selenium also exerts its own antioxidant activity and is involved in the production and utilization of thyroid hormones. Due to its unique roles in the body, selenium is required for many specialized functions, and plays a major role both in providing support for general health and for numerous health conditions.

SELENIUM contains 200 mcg of selenium per capsule in the form of the highest-quality l-selenomethionine. It is contained in a small #3 size capsule. It contains no magnesium stearate and is suitable for hypersensitive individuals.

Selenium is a trace mineral required by the body. It functions primarily in the form of selenomethionine which is incorporated into four active sites of the enzyme glutathionine peroxidase. This enzyme protects against free radical damage (especially in cell membranes) caused by the oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids, and it historically has been linked to Vitamin E, which blocks the production of oxidized fatty acids in cell membranes. In its vital role in glutathione peroxidase, selenium affects all components of the immune system, including the development and functioning of white blood cells.

Selenium appears to exert its own antioxidant activity. It is involved in the production and utilization of thyroid hormone and is antagonistic to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum, and cadmium.

Other conditions in which selenium may play an important protective role include growth failure in malnourished children, hemolytic anemia of newborn infants, infertility, pancreatic disease, poisoning by normally harmless amounts of toxic substances, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Because large amounts of selenium are potentially toxic, large daily amounts over approximately 500 mcg only should be taken under the supervision of a qualified health care professional.
