Why choose a food-form of high selenium yeast like SelenoExcell?

Selenium is an essential nutrient for humans because it is an integral component of the 25 selenoproteins identified in humans, which have a role in antioxidant defense, redox state regulation, and a variety of specific metabolic pathways. Glutathione peroxidase, in particular, is a key enzyme that plays a critical role in the metabolism of the body’s master antioxidant, glutathione. This system cannot function without adequate selenium levels.

The human body is designed to recognize and utilize bio-available minerals that we consume through plants or the animals that eat the plants. The body doesn’t metabolize synthetic and isolated forms of selenium in the same way as food-form minerals. SelenoExcell is made to replicate the way plants uptake minerals and transform them into organically bound forms.

Nutritional Yeast Myths

Fortified/Nutritional Yeast products use the same species of yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) used to make beer, bread or kombucha, but with a different end-product. It is a primary-grown yeast. That means it is cultivated specifically for its nutritional value and not as a by-product or a means to another recipe. The major difference between, a baker’s or brewer’s yeast is that it is an active form, where as Nutritional or Fortified Yeast is inactive, so it has no leavening ability. In other words, it will not reproduce inside you. There is a lot misleading information regarding nutritional yeast and Candidiasis and how consuming too much of it will cause yeast to overgrow in your body. This just can’t happen because nutritional yeast is inactive and doesn’t contain Candida albicans.

As with all Cypress Systems inactive dry yeast mineral products, prior to spray drying, the resulting chilled yeast cream is pasteurized through a high temperature sterilization system. This ensures the inactivity of the yeast and that the final product also meets or exceeds established human food grade USDA microbial requirements.
