How does 4Spectrum™ Natural High Selenium Yeast work?
Selenium is a trace mineral found in soil and water. It is also found in some foods. Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium, while yeast, whole grains and seafood are also good sources. Selenium promotes antioxidant activity by glutathione peroxidase (GPX), a selenium dependent enzyme.
Selenium guards cells against free radical damage within the body, and as such supports healthy vision, lungs and other organs that may be subject to oxidative stress. Selenium also contributes to healthy functioning of both the immune system and the thyroid gland. Studies suggest that selenium promotes healthy prostates in men and healthy breast tissue in women.
Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
Gastrointestinal disorders may decrease the absorption of selenium, resulting in deficiency or depletion. Selenium may also be destroyed when foods are overcooked, over-processed or over-refined.
4Spectrum™ Natural High Selenium Yeast is a potent dietary supplement that contains 200 mcg of selenium as organically bound selenium-enriched yeast (SE-yeast).
Organically bound selenium is derived from yeast, single-cell fungi capable of utilizing elemental selenium to produce selenomethionine. The selenomethionine form of selenium is natural and quickly metabolized, allowing for high bioavailability and retention within the body. Because they are metabolized more quickly, organic sources are also safer than non-organic forms of the mineral because there is reduced possibility of selenium toxicity.
4Spectrum™ Natural High Selenium Yeast is better because:
-- It supplies 200 mcg of selenium, an optimal supplemental amount of the mineral
-- It provides the mineral as an organically bound selenium yeast, allowing for increased bioavailability and retention.
