Pharma Nord Bio Selenoprecise 200mcg 150 Tablets
Bio-SelenoPrecise are small, round white tablets each containing 200 micrograms of selenium from Pharma Nord's patented, standardized selenium yeast. SelenoPrecise contains in addition to selenomethionine more than 20 other organic selenium compounds. SelenoPrecise stands out by being able to document a very high level of bio-availability and a stable quality:
- 15 laboratories in 12 different countries have measured the content of L-methionine selenium in SelenoPrecise to be high and stable
- 89% of the selenium content is absorbed in the body
Why so many different selenium compounds?
Bio-SelenoPrecise contains many different selenium compounds because each type of selenium has different functions in the human body. By supplying a wide spectrum of selenium compounds it is possible to emulate the natural variety of selenium types found in selenium rich food. This, scientists believe, has the best effect on our health.
Selenium is an essential trace element (mineral) of fundamental importance to human health
What is Selenium?
Selenium is an essential trace element that supports an array of selenoproteins and selenium-dependent enzymes that are important for human health and well-being. One of these enzymes is glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), which has several important functions in the body. In addition, selenium supports a normal thyroid function. The thyroid function helps the metabolism in balance. Furthermore selenium supports biological processes as:
a normal immune system
production of normal sperm cells
the maintenance of normal hair and nails
Most of the selenium in the body is found in two forms:
Selenomethionine (that is embedded in different proteins instead of methionine) and selenocysteine.
We get selenomethionine from the diet exclusively because the body is unable to synthesize it. The body is, however, able to convert selenomethionine to selenocysteine, which we are also able to get from the diet in the form of se-methylselenocysteine.
In situations where we get too little dietary selenium, the body is able to use selenium that is stored in the body, simply by converting selenomethionine that is bound in different proteins.
Bio-SelenoPrecise contains both of these main selenium sources (selenomethionine and selenocysteine) plus several other selenium compounds.
