What is selenium?
Selenium is an essential trace element of fundamental importance to human health. Selenium is also an essential component of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase (Gsh-Px) which acts together with other antioxidants to protect the body from free radical damage. Selenium helps maintain a healthy immune system and supports various selenium-dependent enzymes and proteins that are vital for optimal health.
Why you should take Selenium + Zinc Pharma Nord
Selenium + Zinc Pharma Nord may help to maintain healthy cardiovascular, immune and reproductive systems (including normal sperm motility). It is recognised that soils in many areas in the world are selenium-deficient. This deficiency is apparent upwards through the food chain, culminating in man. Selenium + Zinc is a combination supplement designed to meet the daily requirement for the basic antioxidants which act to support selenium. It is an ideally formulated supplement for those living in a modern environment.
Natural selenium sources
Good natural selenium sources are:
- Liver and kidneys
- Whole-grain products
- Brazil nuts
However, the problem is that, even with a well balanced diet, it is practically impossible to get sufficient levels of selenium. One Selenium + Zinc Pharma Nord tablet a day provides you with 100 micrograms of organic selenium, an amount that is believed to provide excellent protection against selenium deficiency.
A powerful antioxidant
Selenium is an essential component of the important antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase (Gsh-Px) which is one of the body's most powerful defence mechanisms against free radical damage. Free radicals are harmful waste products of our energy metabolism. It is very important to eliminate excess free radicals before they destroy our cells and tissues.
Helpful against inflammation
It has been established that free radicals attack healthy cells, causing inflammatory response in various tissues. Reduced Gsh-Px activity has been observed in patients with inflammation but it is possible to boost the enzyme activity through an increased selenium intake. Selenium supports the body's endogenous defence mechanisms against inflammation and is therefore a crucial element in protection of e.g. healthy joints.
Recommended daily intake
1 tablet per day, preferably with food and water. In case of doubts consult your physician or pharmacist.
