Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine: As an essential co-factor of glutathione peroxidase, selenium is an important antioxidant. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make seleno proteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of seleno proteins help block cellular damage from free radicals. High doses of vitamin C (over one gram) may enhance the absorption of selenium. This mineral is best taken in conjunction with antioxidant supplements, such as vitamins C or E.
Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (SeMC) is a naturally occurring seleno-amino acid that is synthesised by plants such as garlic and broccoli. SeMC is an organo selenium compound and also more bio absorb-able than other forms. Unlike seleno methionine which is indiscriminately incorporated into proteins in place of methionine, SeMC is selectively incorporated into seleno-containing enzymes, i.e. seleno proteins, such as glutathione peroxidase.
