  • Super Selenium Complex
  • 200 mcg & Vitamin E 100 vegetarian capsules
  • Item Catalog Number: 01778

Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to optimal health. Few people—including physicians—realize that selenium is available in several different forms. Each form of selenium acts along a different pathway to support healthy cell division. For optimized selenium support, one should supple­ment with all three of the following forms of selenium:

  • Sodium selenite
  • L-selenomethionine
  • Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine

Life Extension® has upgraded Super Selenium Complex with a new selenium blend that combines all three of these unique forms of selenium. A small amount of vitamin E is included because it has been shown to work synergistically with selenium.1

Studies suggest selenium deficiency can pose a signifi­cant health risk.2-7 For example, the body utilizes selenium to make gluta­thione peroxidase, an endogenous antioxidant enzyme almost as important as SOD (superoxide dismutase).8

Selenium also supports normal thyroid and immune function in healthy individuals.8
