SeMet contains selenomethionine, a naturally occurring form of selenium which is the primary form absorbed by the body from food sources. It is the primary form of selenium that is stored in the body, is used more efficiently than other forms and is absorbed 1.5 to 2 times better than selenite; a form commonly found in supplements.
Selenium plant food levels are unpredictable because they vary with the selenium content of the soil, making a nutritional supplement more absorbable and effective and therefore more beneficial to health. Selenium is necessary for immune function, promoting the formation of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase which is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates immune cell activity. Taking a selenium nutritional supplement is important for those who want to promote a healthy immune system and normal cell growth, especially since soil selenium levels vary considerably across North America.
