Selenium and Zinc supplements from Pharma Nord are based on the latest antioxidant research. Selenium is compatible with vitamins B6, C, and E and zinc, in protecting the body cells from oxidants.
The selenium content in European soil may vary from country to country. A well-balanced diet with selenium is needed for supporting the selenium-dependent proteins involved in normal immune function, a well-functioning thyroid gland.
Selenium is an essential trace element (mineral) of fundamental importance to human health.
What is Selenium?
It is a micronutrient vital for many processes in the body. This includes maintaining a healthy immune system and plays an important role in normal thyroid hormone metabolism. Selenium is great for maintaining male fertility, by promoting sperm motility.
Most soils in the UK and Europe are deficient in selenium, which transfers in low-selenium of farmed food that we consume.
In addition Selenium is an essential component of the key antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase which is essential to aid other antioxidants to protect the cells of the body.
What are antioxidants?
Zinc and Selenium supplements contain vitamins C and E. These are important micronutrients that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidants. This ‘antioxidant’ property results in increased protection of cell damage from free radicals, which are particles that smoking and pollution may generate.
Additionally, zinc and selenium has vitamin B6 which promotes normal homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is a naturally occurring amino acid in the body that has associations with cell injury if it’s metabolism is insufficient.
We recommend 1-2 tablets per day, or as directed by a physician.
