My special formula uses L-selenomethionine, a highly bioavailable, yeast-free form of organically-bound selenium. It’s chelated with methionine. Unlike inorganic forms of selenium my formula is not adversely affected by the intake of vitamin C.
This product is FREE of magnesium stearate.
NOTE: If you take ThyroScript, you do not need this selenium, since ThyroScript contains an adequate amount. Some people have asked if they can alternate between ThyroScript and Selenium, and that is fine. But you should not take both of these products in the same day (okay to alternate).
Selenium is an essential trace mineral necessary to maintain healthy thyroid, pancreas, liver and heart function. Selenium-dependent enzymes also have a number of effects on your immune system, and we know that selenium deficiency may contribute to the development and exacerbation of autoimmune thyroid diseases.
Selenium has been shown to inhibit the oxidation of lipids (fats). It also serves as an antioxidant by activating glutathione peroxidase, a potent antioxidant enzyme that protects your cell membranes from damaging free radicals.
Directions: Take one capsule daily with a meal.
