Vibrant Health - Green Selenium 100 mcg. - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Modern biochemistry tells us that trace minerals zinc, manganese, boron, vanadium, molybdenum, strontium, silicon, iron, chromium and selenium are essential to health. Vibrant Health's biochemistry expects to find them in plant foods. Human digestion adapted to the task of extracting phyto (plant) minerals over the course of millions of years of evolution.
Vibrant Health’s Phyto-Selenium Highlights:
- A good source of antioxidants, indoles and isothiocyanates
- Naturally bioavailable
- Standardized in mineral content
- Easily digested
- Organically bound
- Free from contaminants
- Safe for human consumption
Of Primary Concern
A triumvirate of antioxidant enzymes, superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase, are manufactured “on site” inside cells, and serve as your primary defense against oxidative damage at the cellular level. Selenium is an essential component of glutathione peroxidase. An undersupply of Selenium may lead to profound oxidative damage to cell structures. It is customarily supplied by grains and vegetables in the diet, but the amount of Selenium found in the plant directly reflects the amount of Selenium in the soil. And Selenium is not evenly distributed throughout the Earth’s agricultural regions due simply to conditions and forces at play as the Earth’s crust was formed millennia ago. Broad farming regions of the United States and China, for example, naturally have little Selenium in the soil.
A new technology has been successfully developed with the goal to overcome the inherent low bioavailability of most supplemental minerals. The cruciferous plant, Indian mustard, (Brassica juncea) is now hydroponically cultivated in such a way that it hyperaccumulates minerals into natural, organic complexes that the human body may more easily absorb. Unexcelled safety and natural bioavailability are the hallmarks of Phytominerals bound into organic complexes composed of proteins, carbohydrates and other food factors in the stem and leaves of the plant. Such compounds are ideally matched to, and recognized by the human digestive tract.
A Very Unique Process - Hyperaccumulation
Scientists control all nutrients fed to the plants using advanced hydroponic techniques to yield a consistent, standardized mineral content in the Brassica juncea plant itself. Harvested plants require no additional processing other than drying and milling to a fine powder.
