High Selenium Yeast 2000
Manufactured with a non-GMO yeast strain (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that organically binds selenium to its protein matrix to produce a selenium complex that is comparable to selenium found in plants such as grains. Yeast are living organisms with the “machinery” to produce the world’s only natural food-forms of minerals for supplementation, which maximizes bio-availability. Livestock need a continuous supply of trace elements, with selenium being one of them. Over the last 5 decades there have been quite a few achievements in selenium nutrition in several species of animals. It is a dietary essential, being specifically incorporated into the active sites of several known proteins or enzymes as an amino acid, selenocysteine or Glutathione peroxidase (GPx) enzyme. Knowledge of the importance and management of selenium in the immune system, oxidative stress, antioxidant defense and fertility has increased considerably on animals in recent years and is highly recommended to be incorporated into the daily nutrition in animal feeding systems.
