Super Selenium Complex by Life Extension combines all three unique forms of selenium. A small amount of vitamin E is included because it has been shown to work synergistically with selenium.(1)
What is Selenium?
Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to optimal health. Few people - including physicians - realize that selenium is available in several different forms. Each form of selenium acts along a different pathway to support healthy cell division. For optimized selenium support, one should supplement with all three of the following forms of selenium:
- Sodium selenite
- Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine
Studies suggest selenium deficiency can pose a significant health risk.(2-7) For example, the body utilizes selenium to make glutathione peroxidase, an endogenous antioxidant enzyme almost as important as SOD (superoxide dismutase).(8) Selenium also supports normal thyroid and immune function in healthy individuals.(8) *These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
