Seleno Met 200 mcg 100 vcaps by Klaire Labs
Seleno Met by Klaire Labs is a specially formulated trace element that works against the oxidation of fats (lipids) and work together with Vitamin E to help in the production of the body’s antibodies, while also maintaining a healthy pancreas, liver, heart function, and thyroid. This selenium supplement acts as an antioxidant by activating the glutathione peroxidase, which is a special antioxidant enzyme that can help to protect cell membranes from the potentially hazardous free radicals. Seleno Met uses a yeast-free highly bioavailable form of selenium organically-bound chelated with methionine that is L-selenomethionine, which support glutathione activity, and is not adversely affected by the introduction of Vitamin C, unlike other forms of inorganic selenium.
