200 mcg Selenium Supplement
For Antioxidant Support & Thyroid Health
Selenium is an essential mineral that supports heart health, thyroid function, and optimal immune function.*
As a mineral cofactor, Selenium supports the body’s natural antioxidant systems, which protects against oxidative damage and supports healthy aging for your body and mind.*
Selenomethionine contains 200 mcg of selenium bound to the amino acid methionine. It is a well-absorbed form of selenium. A significant body of research supports its benefit in numerous situations, including heavy metal detoxification, healthy thyroid function, and support for oncology patients.
Selenium is an important trace mineral and a constituent of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which is necessary for neutralizing the free radical, hydrogen peroxide, as well as other lipid peroxides (oxidized fats). Selenium's beneficial role is not limited to its antioxidant function; it is also necessary for conversion of the thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) to active T3 (triiodothyronine).
Selenium also appears to exert important positive effects on normal cell function and cell development.
Numerous epidemiological studies have found that maintaining normal serum selenium levels can be associated with support of normal cell function and differentiation, as well as healthy heart, connective tissue, eye, liver, and thyroid function. Selenium supplementation also may exert a protective effect against mercury, cadmium, and other heavy metal toxicities.

Selenium is an important trace mineral, and as an "essential" nutrient, your body does not produce selenium on its own. Therefore, it must come from diet or supplementation. Low levels of selenium can have an adverse impact on the heart, joints, eyes, and the immune, endocrine, and reproductive systems.*
Maintaining an optimal selenium level supports normal cell function and differentiation, and healthy heart, connective tissue, eye, liver, and thyroid function.* Selenium is a great mineral to help preserve a healthier body and support healthy living.*
