Selenium yeast - a natural source of organic selenium

June 1st, 2020

Selenium is a fundamental trace element which is closely related to human health. Selenium can prevent and inhibit tumor, anti-age and maintain the normal functions of cardiovascular system.

Actually, selenium was really shown to be a required nutrient starting in 1957. It was shown to be this is the nutrient that human body won't produce. And the best source at that time was the sodium selenite, however it’s inorganic selenium.

Nowadays, selenium yeast has been recognized as a natural source of organic selenium since it's high organic selenium content, which mainly exists in form of selenomethionine.

As a natural and nutritional food source, yeast replicates the mineral conversion process performed by most plants (i.e. garlic, broccoli). This natural plant process converts inorganic (low bioavailability, potentially toxic) minerals to safer organic (high bioavailability) forms for improved nutrient utilization.
