Why whole food selenium?
Your body uses selenium molecules to produce its own antioxidant enzymes. Having a natural source of selenium is therefore critical in the fight against oxidative stress.
All around you, a myriad of marketers offer their antioxidant and other dietary supplements. How do you choose which supplement is right for you?
The answer is simple: choose whole food dietary supplements, i.e. supplements having a 90% or higher whole food content. Whole food dietary supplements are more effective and safer than their conventional counterparts. This is particularly important when it comes to selenium.
- Unlike other supplements, the selenium in Proselem is never extracted or synthesized. Rather, selenium-rich spirulina (a healthy food that comes from a photosynthesizing bacteria- pictured above) is dried, powdered and encapsulated in its whole, raw form using an internationally patented method. No other supplement provides such a powerful, highly absorbable whole-food selenium supplement than made in France Proselem*.
- Proselem is a synergistic whole food antioxidant associating selenium-rich spirulina, vitamin E and SOD (SuperOxide Dismutase)*. Its main constituent is a powerful proteinated selenium. The selenium in Proselem is different from all currently available forms of inorganic selenium, because it is part of the protein of the living spirulina. Proselem is eight times more absorbable than ordinary selenium supplements*. This makes it an extremely effective and safe antioxidant supplement*.
- Your body recognizes Proselem as a whole food, because it is*. Proselem allows your body to detoxify the substances produced during oxidation (free radicals, etc.)*. Proselem promotes skin elasticity and cellular youth*.
- Selenium is one of the molecules found in glutathione peroxidase, a family of enzymes that protects against oxidative damage. Proselem is scientifically proven to boost your body’s production of glutathione, the most powerful toxin-removal agent in your body.*
Conventional (non whole food) selenium supplements are problematic:
The very worst: selenate and selenite. Inorganic selenium can be toxic and has extremely low bioavailability: discard it.
The weaknesses of selenium yeast. Selenium yeast containing selenate or selenite should also be avoided. Selenium yeast is rich in cellulose, which brings the bioavailability to less than 10%, i.e. for 50 micrograms of selenium yeast intake, less than 5 will be absorbed in the body.
Synthetic selenomethionine. “Yeast-free selenium” supplements contain synthetic selenomethionine. In general, synthetic versions of nutrients are never as effective as the natural, original version. Both the bioavailability and efficacy of this form of selenium remain unproven to date.
Selenium amino acid chelate. The European Food Safety Authority has concluded that “due to the lack of an adequate dossier supporting the use of selenium amino acid chelate in food supplements, the safety of selenium amino acid chelate and the bioavailability of the selenium from this substance cannot be assessed.”
Choose the selenium that your body recognizes! Proselem is the only selenium supplement containing a patented, whole-food, selenium-rich spirulina with 80% bioavailability*.
