Selenomethionine

Selenium is a mineral essential to more than 2 dozen types of proteins in the body, including those used in the liver’s blood detoxification processes and by the immune system.

Selenium is a mineral essential to more than 2 dozen types of proteins in the body, including those used in the liver’s blood detoxification processes and by the immune system. Not only is it an antioxidant itself, protecting fats from oxidation; it’s also involved in the production of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which is used for neutralizing harmful free radicals, viruses and abnormal cells. Selenium is also vital to proper thyroid hormone metabolism, reproduction and DNA synthesis.

The thyroid’s hormone metabolism depends on selenium

About Selenomethionine

PLV Selenomethionine provides 200 micrograms per capsule of a superior, more bio-available form of selenium with an absorption rate that is 80 percent better than sodium selenite.  Rather than being compounded with potentially allergenic food proteins like yeast, our selenium is chelated (i.e. attached)
to a single amino acid. By chelating it to  methionine, it becomes the body’s preferred, biologically active form of selenium for immediate use in all its important functions.


Conditions that may benefit from selenomethionine supplementation include:

Coronary artery disease
Hypothyroidism
Immunodeficiency states such as HIV 
Chronic inflammation
High exposure to free radicals
Liver disease


Recommended Use:
