Patented, Organically Bound Plant Selenium. A great natural plant source of the essential cellular antioxidant, selenium; critical for cardiovascular health.

Modern biochemistry tells us that trace minerals zinc, manganese, boron, vanadium, molybdenum, strontium, silicon, iron, chromium and selenium (and probably even arsenic) are essential to health. Human biochemistry expects to find them in plant foods. Our digestion adapted to the task of extracting phyto (plant) minerals over the course of millions of years of evolution. And therein lies a problem.

Human biochemistry has not yet fully realized that agriculture has changed the nutritional landscape. The ancient biochemistry that resides in all of us still expects to receive a high level of micronutrients per calorie consumed. Why? Because human biochemistry, long ago adapted to a diet of wild foods grown on virgin soil whose nutrient content had never been depleted through agriculture.

The importance of selenium as an essential nutrient was not recognized until research in the late 1960s and 1970s showed it to be so. By that time, we can presume that much of the native selenium in agricultural soils had been depleted by repeated cultivation of food crops.

But our access to the element is not just impacted by agricultural use of soil. We must also contend with the fact that selenium is neither widely nor evenly distributed in agricultural soils. There are regions of the world where agricultural soils are nearly devoid of selenium regions simply due to conditions and forces at play as the Earth’s crust was formed over a billion years ago.

When we understand that selenium is essential to the function of 25 enzymes, we begin to recognize that the element is an excellent candidate for dietary supplementation, especially in those regions where local foods are deficient in selenium.

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. Three of the enzymes that require selenium are glutathione peroxidases that provide essential antioxidant protection to every cell. As an essential component of glutathione peroxidase, an undersupply of Selenium may lead to profound oxidative damage to cell structures.

The element 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. Broad farming regions of the United States and China, for example, naturally have little Selenium in the soil. In these regions especially, dietary supplementation has been shown to be of value.

Improved Absorption

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 recognize. 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 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 level of the mineral inside the Brassica juncea plant itself. Harvested plants require no additional processing other than drying and milling to a fine powder.

Vibrant Health’s Super Natural Selenium is:

•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

Only a little more than 54 mg. of Phytavail™ special, cruciferous vegetable delivers more than the Recommended Daily Value of Selenium.
