Biotics Research Selenomethionine - 90 caps
Biotics Research's Selenomethionine, an organic form of selenium, is a readily absorbable form of this essential trace mineral. Selenium functions as an integral part of glutathione peroxidase, an important antioxidant enzyme, and is required for normal thyroid function.
Selenium is an essential element, classified in a group of proteins called the selenoproteins, which are synthesized through the involvement of sulfurcontaining amino acids and selenium. As a required trace mineral, it is known that selenium plays a significant role in immune function, as a protectant against harmful exposure to heavy metals, in particular mercury, as a co-factor for glutathione peroxidase, and as a synergist to vitamin E. Additionally, it is an integral part of the enzyme type 1 iodothyronine deiodinase, which is required for the conversion of thyroxine (T4) to triiodothyronine (T3). It is also particularly important in males, as a regulator of male hormones and as a supporter of prostate function. As an antioxidant, it plays important roles in both the detoxification of peroxides and free radicals. Lastly, selenium is showing promise in the arena of inhibiting viral replication.
