Seleno Excell Selenium is an organically bound high selenium yeast that provides increased bioavailability for the human body. Selenium is a mineral supplement for the maintenance of healthy body cells and good health. It is a vital antioxidant whose principal function is to inhibit the oxidation of fats in the body.
- Potent antioxidant
- Free radical scavenger
- Promotes fertility
- Assists with detoxification
- Supports healthy immune function
SelenoExcell originates from a non-pathogenic, non-GMO Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain. It creates a product that is the closest to food forms of selenium, like what is found in Brazil nuts, eggs, peas, poultry, and meats. We do this because we believe it is important to consume minerals and vitamins that are as close to a natural food form as possible. However, the S. cerevisiae cells in SelenoExcell are dead or inactive, and only the nutritional properties remain. The cells cannot reproduce in the human body when consumed because they are no longer alive.
In the case of SelenoExcell, S. cerevisiae is used as a means to an end. The yeast fermentation process replicates the natural course in which plants absorb and transform minerals from the soil into a more bioavailable form that improves the nutrition and health properties of selenium. This particular yeast is able to accumulate and incorporate selenium into the protein structure, which enhances the antioxidant properties, which fight oxidative stress in the body.
Selenium from ‘high selenium yeasts’ contain as much as 1,000 to 2,000 micrograms of selenium per gram. The form of selenium in SelenoExcell is what researchers call organic, meaning it is attached to several amino acids. This factor may make it more bioavailable than others.
Do not take selenium at levels greater than 400 mcg daily. In some people, dosages of selenium as low as 900 mcg per day over many months or years may produce signs of selenium toxicity. Signs and symptoms related to chronic selenium toxicity include depression, nervousness, emotional instability, nausea and vomiting, a garlic odor of the breath and sweat, and, in extreme cases, loss of hair and fingernails.
