Our Comprehensive Review: Minerals That Support Healthy Immunity: Selenium

Why SelenoExcell® is the Superior

Form of Selenium Supplementation

How SelenoExcell® Works*:

SelenoExcell® is produced to be quickly and easily absorbed by the body to effectively promote health and reduce the risk of disease. The combination of the three natural food-forms of selenium found in SelenoExcell® - selenomethionine, selenocysteine, and methyl-selenocysteine - directly feed the three metabolic pools that efficiently utilize these forms compared to synthetic types. This means that SelenoExcell® is an outstanding fit in terms of absorption, metabolism, and partitioning as the body successfully adapts to shifts in selenium intake and metabolic demand.

 

The utilization of selenium by the body is hierarchical. The top priority is to have dietary selenium fill the selenide pool (pool #1) to drive the synthesis of the 25 selenoproteins in the body. These selenoproteins are the reason why selenium is essential for health, because they serve specialized functions such as providing critical antioxidant protection and regulation of thyroid gland function. One of the selenoproteins, selenoprotein P, enables the liver to package and shuttle selenium to other tissues in the body, especially the brain, kidneys, and testis. Methyl-selenocysteine in SelenoExcell® feeds the cancer-fighting methylselenol pool (pool #2) more directly than other selenium forms.

What forms of selenium are found naturally in the human diet?

When we consume plants in our diet, selenium is predominantly in the form of selenomethionine. Plants also contain smaller amounts of selenium in the form of methyl-selenocysteine and selenate. When we eat meat, our selenium intake is predominantly in the form of selenomethionine and selenocysteine. Brazil nuts and tuna represent foods with the highest selenium content which is also predominantly in the form of selenomethionine. SelenoExcell®, as a mixture of natural forms of selenium, mimics the way that selenium is naturally presented in our food. Because SelenoExcell® directly feeds the three metabolic pools that orchestrate the body’s utilization of selenium, SelenoExcell® is considered an excellent choice to supplement selenium for health promotion and disease prevention.

*FDA Qualified Health Claim for Selenium: 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.

Why Selenium-Enriched Yeast White Paper

1. Newly released, peer-reviewed clinical research better defines the importance of selenium compounds from selenium-enriched yeast and why this is the preferred form.

 

2. The most recent 2014 study at Penn State by John Richie Jr. Ph.D. and Karam El-Bayoumy Ph.D. showed, for the first time, reductions in biomarkers of oxidative stress following supplementation with selenium-enriched yeast but not L-selenomethionine in healthy men.

 

3. Results from past clinical trials suggest that SelenoExcell, but not non-food forms of
L-selenomethionine, may be effective at reducing prostate cancer risk.

FIVE WAYS SELENIUM CONTRIBUTES TO A HEALTHY PREGNANCY

1. Selenium is needed for proper immune function. It changes into antioxidants in
the body, helping support immune function and regulate toxic free radicals in the
body.


2. Selenium maintains healthy thyroid function, which is very important for energy
levels and strong development of a healthy baby. It also protects against thyroid
disease, which is relatively common during pregnancy.


3. Adequate selenium intake protects against serious pregnancy complications, such
as preeclampsia and pre-term birth.


4. Selenium can ameliorate the toxic effect of exposure to heavy metals, such as
cadmium and lead.


5. High maternal selenium status helps improve early infant neurological
development and may reduce the risk of the infant developing autism.
