Material Name(s): Bio Sel-5000, L-Selenomethionine, Selenium
L-Selenomethionine is an amino acid containing selenium obtained from plant material. It is the major seleno-compound in cereal grains (wheat grain, maize and rice), soybeans and enriched yeast. Selenium is necessary for immune function, supporting the production of glutathione (a powerful antioxidant) and boosting immune cell activity. Selenium is also important for the reproductive system and to remove free radicals that occur during thyroid hormone production. Supplementing with selenium is important for those who want to promote a healthy immune system and normal cell growth especially as selenium soil content is depleted in many areas of North America.
Methionine is an essential amino acid humans need to get from outside sources, selenium is an important mineral needed to make up enzymes and proteins that help build DNA and to protect against cell damage and infections.
