Solgar Introduces Se-Methylselenocysteine 200 mcg Vegetable Capsules

Solgar proudly introduces Se-Methylselenocysteine 200 mcg Vegetable Capsules, offering consumers an advanced bioactive form of selenium that helps produce selenoproteins, which support antioxidant activity.* This premium supplement provides 200 mcg of selenium (as Se-methylselenocysteine) per vegetable capsule.

“Selenium has been studied for 50 years and research shows its beneficial role in supporting many areas of health,” said Dr. Richard Passwater, Solgar Research and Development. “Se-methylselenocysteine provides this important mineral in a form that’s highly bioavailable.”

Se-methylselenocysteine is an organic selenium compound found naturally in some plants, such as garlic, onions, broccoli, and wild leeks grown in high-selenium soil. It provides the essential trace element selenium which can be incorporated as selenocysteine into the active sites of selenoproteins, such as the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase. As a component of glutathione peroxidase, selenium helps to fight cell-damaging free radicals in the body.* It also helps recycle vitamin E for additional antioxidant support and helps support prostate and thyroid health.*
