Seleno-Methionine contains 200 mcg of bioavailable selenium per capsule.
Selenomethionine is an amino acid containing selenium. Selenium is a nutritionally essential trace element for
humans and animals. The National Research Councilís Recommended Dietary Allowance for selenium in
adults ranges from 55 to 75 mcg per day depending on age and gender. In American adults, intakes typically
range from 80 to165 mcg/d. Selenium is a cofactor to about 10 selenoproteins in the body; the most important
of these appears to be glutathione peroxidase (GPX). GPX uses glutathione to reduce hydrogen peroxide and
thus protect cells and plasma against free radical injury. GPX activity depends on an adequate supply of
dietary selenium. Recently, selenium as selenocysteine has been identified in the active center of type 1 and 3
iodothyronine deiodinases, two important enzymes regulating the formation and degradation of the active
thyroid hormone, triiodothyronine (T3). Another important selenoprotein appears to be selenoprotein P, but its
functions remain unclear. Selenium and vitamin E appear to have synergistic effects, since some signs of
vitamin E deficiency in animals can be alleviated by dietary selenium. Dietary selenium is generally well
absorbed and utilized in the body. The richest food sources of selenium are seafood and organ meats,
followed by muscle meats, cereals and grains, and dairy products. Fruits and vegetables are typically low in
selenium, and low selenium status has been reported in vegetarians.
