This is a superior, easily absorbed form of the antioxidant mineral that works with vitamin E to fight free radicals. As a trace mineral, selenium helps promote normal growth, fertility and detoxification, as well as helping to slow aging. Seleno Excell
is for those who want the most bioavailable and potent form of selenium.
Mounting research points to selenium as a key nutrient in maintaining good health and preventing degenerative diseases. A landmark study reported that selenium produced an astonishing 50 percent reduction in total cancer mortality and selenium supplementation was found to reduce the incidence of all cancers by better than one-third.
Seleno Excell is being used in a series of clinical trials, some of which are funded by the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health and the United States Department of Agriculture.
The trace mineral selenium functions primarily as a component of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase which works with vitamin E in preventing free radical damage to cell membranes. Low levels of selenium has been linked to a higher risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory diseases, and other conditions associated with increased free radical damage including premature aging and cataract formation.
Severe selenium deficiency is associated with Keshan disease, a severe heart disorder that affects primarily children and women of child-bearing age in some areas of China where selenium levels in the soil are very low. However, severe selenium deficient states are extremely rare in North America. More common is the chronically low selenium intake that is associated with an increased risk for cancer and/or heart disease, and low immune function.
Selenium is also essential in the utilization of essential fatty acids, necessary for the production of prostaglandins, and promotes normal growth and fertility.
