Pharma Nord Bio-Selenium and Zinc 30 Tablets
Selenium and zinc supplement is based on the latest antioxidant research. Selenium supplements work 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.
Selenium 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 supplements also help maintain male fertility, by promoting sperm motility.
Most soils in the UK and Europe are deficient in selenium, which translates in low-selenium of farmed food and eventually, low selenium status of populations who consume local food.
Selenium is an essential component of the key antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase which works with other antioxidants to protect the cells of the body.
Our selenium and zinc supplements also contain vitamins C and E. These are important, synergystic micronutrients that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This 'antioxidant' property results in increased protection of cell damage from free radicals, which are particles generated by smoking and pollution.
Furthermore, zinc and selenium contain vitamin B6 which contributes to 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.
