High Selenium Yeast 1200
Selenium is essential for normal body function and supporting optimal health, but how our body receives it matters.
SelenoExcell® High Selenium Yeast 1200 is a selenium-enriched yeast and it’s the closest food-form of selenium available as a supplement. For that reason, it’s the most trusted product of its kind for high quality developments by leading academic and health institutions.
It’s also the first selenium yeast product to be Generally Recognized as Safe or GRAS approved by the FDA, and have a Qualified Health Claim*.
SelenoExcell® has been Shown to Do the Following
Results were reported in the Journal of American Medical Association from a clinical dose study of 200 µg/day.
Total Cancer Mortality
WHAT IS SELENOEXCELL®?
The S. cerevisiae cells in SelenoExcell® are dead or inactive, and only the nutritional properties remain. The cells cannot reproduce in the human body when consumed because they are no longer alive. In SelenoExcell®, S. cerevisiae is used as a means to an end. The yeast fermentation process replicates the natural course in which plants absorb and transform minerals from the soil into a more bioavailable form that improves the nutrition and health properties of selenium. The yeast is able to accumulate and incorporate selenium into the protein structure, which enhances the antioxidant properties that fight oxidative stress in the body.
What other nutrients are present in SelenoExcell®?
During fermentation, the yeast creates a rich B-vitamin profile that includes thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, biotin, and folic acid. Its mineral content also includes phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, and sulfur, making this product a great source of essential nutrients. Selenium is nutritionally essential for humans, and the FDA recently mandated its inclusion for infant formulas in the US.
Furthermore, the protein formed during the fermentation process provides beneficial amino acids, like methionine (selenomethionine), threonine, lysine, isoleucine, leucine, valine, and histidine.
*FDA Qualified Health Claim: Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
