Selenium: an essential mineral
Selenium-based dietary supplement. Selenium is a naturally occurring trace element essential to the body, playing crucial roles in numerous physiological functions.
Selenium occurs naturally in soils, is assimilated by plants and is thus found in our diet, particularly in selenium-rich foods such as Brazil nuts, seafood and certain meats.
As a powerful antioxidant, selenium protects the body's cells against damage caused by free radicals, also supporting immune function and thyroid hormone production.
However, balance is essential. While selenium deficiency can cause health problems, excess could be toxic.
So it's vital to ensure adequate intake, whether through diet or controlled supplementation.
With a selenium content of 150 µg per vegetarian capsule, our selenium-enriched yeast supplement, combined with vitamin C, is ideally suited to reducing selenium requirements in selenium-deficient individuals.
Antioxidant: protecting cells against oxidative stress
Thanks to its antioxidant properties, selenium protects cells against the free radicals responsible for oxidative stress, thus preventing cell damage.
In addition to these effects, selenium acts as a cofactor for glutathione peroxidase, a key enzyme in the metabolism of glutathione, a powerful endogenous antioxidant. This cofactor role enables selenium to further amplify the body's antioxidant defenses.
Selenium intake also contributes to heart health. This mineral plays a role in preventing atherosclerosis (plaque deposition in the arteries), helping to protect blood vessels from damage and support healthy circulation.
A trace element capsule to support the immune system
This essential trace element plays a role in the body's defense mechanisms, boosting the proliferation and activity of white blood cells.
Supports the immune system, increasing resistance to infection and disease.
Rich in selenium for thyroid hormone production
The thyroid gland, an essential metabolic regulator, contains a high concentration of selenium.
This mineral contributes to thyroid function by helping to convert thyroxine (T4) into its active form, triiodothyronine (T3).
As it also acts as an antioxidant, it protects the gland from free radicals produced during hormone synthesis.
Food supplement for spermatogenesis
Selenium is intimately linked to sperm production and quality. Studies have shown that adequate selenium intake helps improve sperm motility, a key factor in male fertility.
What's more, as an antioxidant, it protects sperm cells against damage caused by free radicals, thus preserving the integrity of genetic material.
So, for men wishing to optimize their fertility or simply maintain robust reproductive health, selenium-enriched supplementation can be a beneficial addition to their varied and balanced diet.
Selenium deficiencyIn Europe, and particularly in Germany, Scotland, Finland and certain Balkan countries, selenium-poor soils can be found. For this reason, it may be necessary to consume a selenium-rich diet.
