Bio-Selenium + Zinc is a combination supplement containing selenium, together with vitamins B6, C and E, as well as the mineral zinc.
Selenium is an essential trace element of fundamental importance to human health. People at risk of selenium deficiency include those with a restricted food intake (slimmers, vegetarians, the elderly), pregnant and lactating women, and those living in geographical regions with selenium depleted soils. It is recognized that soils in many areas of the world, including the UK, are deficient in selenium, often as a result of continual or intensive farming. This deficiency is manifest upwards through the food chain via plants and animals, culminating in man.
Dietary selenium always occurs in an organic form (i.e. bound to an amino acid such as methionine or cysteine), whereas selenium in supplements may be organic or inorganic in form. The absorption of organic selenium (selenomethionine, selenocysteine) is generally more efficient than for inorganic selenium (e.g. sodium selenite), and the absorption of organic forms of selenium is not reduced by concurrent intake of vitamin C. Selenium levels are depleted by smoking or drinking alcohol.
What doesBio-Selenium + Zinc do?
Because antioxidants work in a synergistic manner, zinc and the antioxidant vitamins present in this product provide mutual support to the action of selenium in protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are generated continually within the body via normal metabolism, as well as by exposure to toxins in the external environment.
Bio-Selenium + Zinc helps to maintain a healthy immune system, normal thyroid function, normal sperm production and healthy skin and hair.
How to take Bio-Selenium + Zinc:
- Take 1-2 tablets daily with a meal.
Toxic effects due to excessive selenium intake occur at doses greater than 900 mcg/day.
