Product Description

Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to optimal  health. Few people—including physicians—realize that selenium is available in  several different forms. Each form of selenium acts along a different pathway  to support healthy cell division. For optimized selenium support, one should  supple­ment with all three of the following forms of selenium:

  • Sodium selenite
  •   L-selenomethionine
  • Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine

Life Extension®  has upgraded Super Selenium Complex  with a new selenium blend that combines all three of these unique  forms of selenium. A small amount of  vitamin E is included because it has been shown to work synergistically with  selenium.1

Studies suggest selenium deficiency can pose a signifi­cant  health risk.2-7 For example, the body utilizes selenium to make gluta­thione peroxidase, an endogenous  antioxidant enzyme almost as important as SOD (superoxide dismutase).8

Selenium also supports normal thyroid and immune function in  healthy individuals.8
