Chelated Selenium 200mcg Plus C and E
Selenium is an essential mineral found in trace amounts throughout the body. It can be used to aid in the prevention of many diseases, including arteriosclerosis, stroke, cirrhosis, arthritis and emphysema. Selenium is a natural anti-oxidant that protects against the formation of radical scavengers. These scavengers can cause the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are key factors in hormone production. All diseases that are associated with aging are affected by Selenium.
Working closely with Vitamin E, Selenium helps to stimulate the production of antibodies in response to infection and the binding of toxic metals like mercury. Selenium is necessary for the production of prostaglandins, substances that regulate blood pressure. A prostaglandin deficiency also results in the deficiency of other compounds necessary for keeping the arteries free from platelet aggregation. Pancreatic function also depends upon Selenium. The liver, heart, spleen, and kidneys contain four to five times as much Selenium that is ingested may not be assimilated. For this reason, Sangster’s offers you a form that is chelated. Chelation binds the molecule with protein, which allows the mineral to pass through the stomach without binding to metals. Deficiencies of Selenium common in all animals and may lead to premature aging, cataracts, diminished vision, nerve disorders, liver damage, and muscular dystrophy. Selenium is essential for reproduction; studies show that a deficiency results in infertility.
The beneficial effects of Selenium include immune system support. The combination of Selenium with Vitamin E has been used successfully in reducing the frequency of angina attacks.
Sangster’s Chelated Selenium is combined with Vitamin E and Vitamin C because they work synergistically to protect the cells. Calcium Pangamate (B15) is added to promote cell respiration.
