Selenium is a fundamental trace element which is closely related to human health. Selenium can prevent and inhibit tumor, anti-age and maintain the normal functions of cardiovascular system.
Selenium-enriched yeast is the best source of organic selenium. The absorption and utilization of organic selenium is much higher than the inorganic selenium, and the toxicity of organic selenium is much lower.
Organic selenium in selenium-enriched yeast
Inorganic selenium, selenomethionine and selenocysteine in selenium-enriched yeast were analyzed in French CNRS labs using HPLC-ICP MS. The research data of different batches showed that there was no inorganic selenium in selenium-enriched yeast, and the organic selenium mainly existed in the form of selenomethionine and selenocysteine.
