As an essential cofactor of glutathione peroxidase,86 selenium is an important antioxidant.87 Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system, DNA repair, and the detoxification of heavy metals.87-91 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.92,93
Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (SeMC) is a naturally occurring seleno-amino acid that is synthesized by plants such as garlic and broccoli.95-98 SeMC is an organoselenium compound and also more bioabsorbable than other forms. Unlike selenomethionine, which is incorporated into proteins in place of methionine, SeMC is not incorporated into any proteins ... so it is fully available for the synthesis of selenium-containing enzymes, such as glutathione peroxidase.99

iHerb Customer Reviews
I wanted an easily assimilable formula. My liver is temperamental following hepatis A about 30 years ago. Selenium is hard on the liver anyway, even for normal livers. I hoped that this new formula might be relatively liver-friendly but unfortunately not to my liver. If you have a strong and healthy liver you might be able to take this formula with no problems.
Selenium helps your thyroid convert the inactive hormone (T4) to the active (T3) hormone. My husband and I have been using this product with good results.
