SelenoPure, yeast-free selenium, is a source of the essential trace mineral selenium that has clinically substantiated benefits that include:
- Helps protect cells and tissues from free-radical damage
- Supports immune function
- Helps maintain a healthy heart
- Promotes prostate health
SelenoPure is an excellent, highly bioavailable source of yeast-free selenium. L-selenomethionine, which is very well absorbed and well retained in the body, is an essential, natural, nutritional form of selenium. Some multi-vitamin and mineral supplements contain inorganic forms of selenium that are not as readily bioavailable or efficiently stored in the body.
The SelenoPure brand provides consistent, high quality, and bioavailable yeast-free selenium. L-selenomethionine is either metabolized directly to reactive forms of selenium or stored in place of methionine in body proteins. In comparison, the inorganic selenium salts, sodium selenite, proteinated or chelated forms of selenium do not contain selenium in the form naturally occurring in foods and therefore, the body cannot completely use these forms to fulfill all the physiological roles of selenium. The broad applications of L-selenomethionine in human health and nutrition have been reported in numerous studies. Nutrition 21 has been at the forefront of applied nutrition and research. Nutrition 21 pioneered the development of yeast-free selenium and established the quality standards for yeast-free selenium and L-selenomethionine as nutritional supplements. Yeast-free, SelenoPure L-selenomethionine, ideal for use in multi-vitamins and multi-mineral supplements, is available in 5,000 mcg Se/g potency in a dicalcium phosphate carrier.
