Selenium 100 µg ACE
As a result of our metabolism, the so-called free radicals are produced in our body cells. Stress and environmental impacts e.g. radiation, cigarette smoke, chemicals make it useful to support your body with certrain antioxidants such as selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E.
Selen 100 μg ACE Zellschutz-Kapseln contains high-dosed selenium from selenium yeast, mixed carotenoids, vitamin C and vitamin E from natural sources. Selenium protects cells against oxidative stress and contributes to a normal function of the immune system and the thyroid. Most soil in Germany contain very little selenium, which makes a natural supplementation with selenium recommendable.
What does the body need selenium for?
The trace element selenium can not be produced by the body itself. Therefore, it should be supplemented on a daily basis in forms of food. Further, selenium is a central component of many enzymes in our body that complete important protective functions in our body. The enzyme glutathione peroxidase for example, helps to protect the body cells against free radicals. Selenium, just like vitamin C and E, belongs to the so-called antioxidants, which bind free radicals and neutralize them. Aditionally, selenium is involved in the formation of thyroid hormones and therefore, contributes to normal thyroid function.
Selenium strengthens the immune system
Selenium contributes to a normal function of the immune system. Especially in winter, our body needs a lot of selenium. To meet those increased needs, it is recommendable to supplement selenium.
People with low selenium levels
The body needs selenium especially during physical exertion, stress, in old age, during pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, our body is often undersupplied with selenium. People who have low selenium levels due to their diet are also recommended to take selenium aditionally. Low selenium levels can also occur if it is excreted or when the absorption is disturbed. Blood tests can easily determine the selenium level.
Selenium for healthy hair and nails
Our hair needs different minerals and trace elements in order to be able to grow healthy – one of them is selenium. Selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal hair due to its antioxidative properties. Our nails also need selenium in order to not get brittle.
One capsule contains selenium 100 µg, vitamin C from acerola cherries 50 mg, vitamin E 36 mg and carotenoids 4 mg, including 1 mg lycopene from tomato.
1 capsule selenium daily, unchewed during or before a meal. Since your daily diet should already consist of raw vegetables such as salads, fruits and vegetables, which contain lots of vitamins, one capsule of Selen 100 μg ACE from Dr. Wolz is sufficient.
A varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are important for health.
