In addition‚ this selenium supplement could have a mild detoxifying effect. Selenium may work to activate glutathione peroxidase (GSH)‚ which is an antioxidant enzyme that might remove potentially harmful free radicals and heavy metals from your body. As a result‚ Selenium Forte may be able to protect your cells from oxidative damage.
Selenium Forte might also work to promote healthy cardiovascular function; this is because selenium may help address certain symptoms associated with plaque buildup in your arteries. At the same time‚ selenium may work to relieve symptoms of joint inflammation by encouraging the production of prostaglandins (hormone-like substances).
Each tablet of American Biologics’ Selenium Forte provides 200 micrograms of selenium proteinate. At the recommended dosage of one tablet daily‚ every 90-tablet bottle should last for about three months.
Selenium has long been recognized as one of the important trace minerals and antioxidants that the average Western diet does not supply in sufficient quantities. Selenium is an essential nutrient recognized and accredited with many important benefits to the human body. The National Institute of Health and scientific literature report of the critical role Selenium plays in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis and protection from oxidative damage and infection. Further mention is made of its importance to cardiovascular and joint health, and its possible cancer protective qualities.
SELENIUM EXISTS IN TWO FORMS:
1. INORGANIC (SELENATE AND SELENITE)
2. ORGANIC (SELENOMETHIONINE AND SELENOCYSTEINE)
Most Selenium is in the form of Selenomethionine as found in human tissues. Selenium supplements are available in both forms and some companies sell Selenium as Sodium Selenite (inorganic).
To assure better absorption and tolerance, the American Biologics’ Selenium is available as Selenomethionine as stored in human tissue.
