Life Extension, Super Selenium Complex, 100 Veggie Caps33 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to optimal health. Few people—including physicians—realize that selenium is available in several different forms. Each form of selenium acts along a different pathway to support healthy cell division. For optimized selenium support, one should supplement with all three of the following forms of selenium:
- Sodium selenite
- Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine
Life Extension has upgraded Super Selenium Complex with a new selenium blend that combines all three of these unique forms of selenium. A small amount of vitamin E is included because it has been shown to work synergistically with selenium.
Studies suggest selenium deficiency can pose a significant health risk. For example, the body utilizes selenium to make glutathione peroxidase, an endogenous antioxidant enzyme almost as important as SOD (superoxide dismutase).
Selenium also supports normal thyroid and immune function in healthy individuals.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Selenium is critical trace mineral. Many people are low in in Selenium. As a result of to factory farming practices it is not as abundant in our food. This mineral is very critical for anyone who has low thyroid function (hypothyroid). It is needed for you body to produce thyroid hormone. A study has show that in some cases it was able to lower the antibodies in those with a thyroid autoimmune condition called Hashimotos disease. Leave it to Life Extension to come up with a unique product that combines 3 forms on selenium into one capsule. They have been on the leading edge of nutrition research for years and have an impressive track record of innovative researched based products. I have been using this for a few months and I trust it to be a good choice. I don't know of anything else like it on the market today. This is great protection to make sure your body is getting this important mineral. Do not supplement more than 400 mcg of selenium in a day.

This is another great product from Life Extension. I have thyroid issues as a result of mercury toxicity and I find this product excellent in helping me to stabilize the Hashimotos. Since I have been using this, zinc, iodine and coconut oil, I have started to reverse the Hashimotos and I am now only borderline on the good side. I was told it was irreversible. I would highly recommend this product.
