Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes that help block cellular damage from free radicals and support healthy cell function. Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (SeMC) is a naturally occurring seleno-amino acid that is synthesized by plants such as garlic and broccoli.
Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine has been shown in clinical studies to be absorbed faster than other forms of selenium.
Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine Benefits
- Supports healthy cell function & cell division
- Helps protect cells & tissues from oxidative damage
- Optimizes thyroid hormone synthesis & activity
- Supports immune health
Get the Selenium You Need
Selenium is an essential micronutrient for human health. In the body, it is incorporated into enzymes and other proteins to make vital compounds known as selenoproteins. Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (MSeC) is an organic selenium compound that is more absorbable than inorganic selenium salts typically used in supplements.
Selenium is an essential micronutrient for human health. In the body, it is incorporated into enzymes and other proteins to make vital compounds known as selenoproteins. Perhaps the best-known selenoprotein is the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase. Each molecule of glutathione peroxidase requires four selenocysteine units and catalyzes a reaction in which a free radical is scavenged by glutathione.
By balancing cellular oxidation and reduction reactions, glutathione peroxidase and other selenoproteins protect cells and tissues from oxidative damage and support healthy cell function and cell division.
Forms of Selenium
Selenium, as selenocysteine, is also part of an enzyme that helps regulate the activation of thyroid hormone. Selenium helps with maintenance of healthy cognition, mood and metabolism by protecting thyroid gland function and optimizing thyroid hormone synthesis and activity.
Combining with Vitamins
Maintaining optimal selenium status can help ensure proper regulation of the immune system. In addition to stimulating T cells, natural killer (NK) cells and other immune cells, selenium also supports healthy inflammatory immune activity. Selenium appears to act synergistically with vitamin E to protect lipids and support immune health. Its absorption and bioavailability are increased in the presence of vitamins A, C, D and E.
Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (MSeC) is a naturally occurring selenium compound that is synthesized by plants such as garlic and broccoli and has demonstrated positive effects on cell function. As an organic selenium compound, MSeC is more absorbable than inorganic selenium salts typically used in supplements. Unlike selenomethionine, MSeC is closely related to the physiologic form, selenocysteine, needed to synthesize selenoproteins such as glutathione peroxidase.
