Selenium is an important mineral involved in many systems and processes in the body. It works as a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells against oxidative stress. Selenium also contributes to normal thyroid function, helps with DNA synthesis and reproduction, and is required by the immune system.
You can find selenium in many foods such as eggs, brown rice, mushrooms, spinach, lentils, bananas, cashews, pork, and many others. Still, many of us have a very low intake of this mineral, and selenium deficiency may lead to a range of issues.
AOR’s SeMet formula provides selenomethionine, a superior and natural form of selenium. It is the main form of selenium stored by the body, is easily used, and has been shown to have a bioavailability at least 1.5 to 2 times higher than inorganic forms of selenium.
Selenomethionine is known to be directly and easily converted into methylselenol, which is the most important selenium metabolite in the body.
SeMet is Selenomethionine, a superior form of selenium found in plants when grown in exceedingly selenium-rich soil.
