Science & Research

Verifiable Science

Selenium is an essential cofactor for glutathione peroxidases, which maintain antioxidant defenses by inactivating hydrogen peroxide.1 Selenium also supports iodine metabolism to maintain healthy thyroid hormone production.1 This trace mineral is also involved in the production of certain prostaglandins that promote healthy blood flow.2 Selenium may also support healthy growth and fertility, as indicated in a research study using a combination of selenomethionine and vitamin E.3 Selenium also provides support for the immune system.4 Selenomethionine is an organic form of the mineral that occurs naturally in Brazil nuts and legumes, and consists of selenium bound to the amino acid methionine. During digestion, selenium is released from methionine. Selenium is absorbed primarily in the duodenum and proximal small intestine and transported to tissues via specialized transport proteins.1‡

Source

  • Selenium is derived from sodium selenite
  • Methionine (selenomethionine only) is derived from Homoserine, which is produced by organic chemical synthesis. Selenomethionine serves as a storage form. The methionine is incorporated directly into proteins, releasing selenium as they are catabolized
  • Citrate (selenium citrate only) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation
  • Ascorbyl palmitate (selenomethionine only) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil
  • Hypoallergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose
