Pharma Nord's Bio Selenium + Zinc is based on the latest antioxidant research. Selenium works synergistically with vitamins B6, C, and E, as well as with the mineral zinc, in contributing to the protection of body cells from oxidative stress.
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, and other important selenium-dependent functions.
Bio-Selenium + Zinc contains SelenoPrecise, the patented, organic selenium yeast with excellent high bio-availability (88,7% absorption) and safety records.
Selenium is an essential trace element of fundamental importance to human health.
The most abundant sources of selenium are Brazil nuts, seafood, meat and poultry. People at risk of selenium deficiency include those with a restricted food intake (slimmers, vegetarians, the elderly), pregnant and lactating women, and those living in geographical regions with selenium depleted soils.
It is recognized that soils in many areas of the world, including the UK, are deficient in selenium, often as a result of continual or intensive farming. This deficiency is manifest upwards through the food chain via plants and animals, culminating in man. In Scandinavian countries, selenium is added to agricultural fertilizers to increase depleted soil selenium levels, resulting in an increase in population average selenium intake from 30 to 90 microgram per day.
Dietary selenium always occurs in an organic form (i.e. bound to an amino acid such as methionine or cysteine), whereas selenium in supplements may be organic or inorganic in form. The absorption of organic selenium (selenomethionine, selenocysteine) is generally more efficient than for inorganic selenium (e.g. sodium selenite), and the absorption of organic forms of selenium is not reduced by concurrent intake of vitamin C.
Pharma Nord Bio-Selenium + Zinc is a multiple nutritional supplement designed to meet the daily requirement for the basic antioxidants, which act synergistically with selenium when supplemented in combination. We use our own ingredient, SelenoPrecise. This product has a high and stable content of l-selenomethionine and 30 other organic selenium compounds boasting a guaranteed total absorption of 89%.
Selenium helps to protect the body from the toxic effects of heavy metals such as mercury from amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings release mercury vapour which is absorbed into the bloodstream with potentially harmful effects. Selenium binds to heavy metals rendering them harmless. British diets are very low in minerals and antioxidants, in particular selenium. The basis for our natural defense mechanisms may be too weak and so make mercury poisoning even more dangerous. This is why it is advisable to take measures to deal directly with the problem of amalgam fillings and ensure that our diets contain sufficient selenium and antioxidants.
