The benefits of Selenium for the body
- Contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative stress
- Supports the normal function of the immune system
- Supports the maintenance of normal hair and nails
Where does selenomethionine come from?
Plants absorb selenium from the soil and convert it into organic forms. Selenium is thus present in the form of selenomethionine in wheat and other grains. Selenomethionine is therefore the main form of selenium found in foods. Selenomethionine is incorporated directly into the body's proteins through metabolic pathways similar to that of methionine. The replacement of methionine with selenomethionine in the structure of the protein does not cause any functional change. In the structure of the protein, selenium protects the DNA against oxidation even more effectively than the sulfur in methionine
What is the best form of selenomethionine?
The form of selenomethionine that the body can use is L-selenomethionine. It is better absorbed into the body structures than any other form of selenium. The high bioavailability of L-selenomethionine has been demonstrated in several studies: selenium levels in the red blood cells of subjects treated with selenomethionine were increased by 100% after 16 weeks of supplementation. Neither selenate nor selenite supplementation causes such an increase.
