Selenium is an essential trace mineral found in soil and water.
Due to over-intensive farming practices, and Australia's low selenium content in soil to start with, very little Selenium is found in everyday modern foods, especially processed foods.
Plants and yeast naturally convert selenium into organically bound protein forms of minerals.
For improved bioavailability, Healthy Origins SelenoExcell contains selenium in this organically bound natural food form.
Foods high in selenium (depending on where the food comes from) include:
Brazil nuts, mushrooms, eggs, meat, sunflower seeds.
SelenoExcell is the high selenium yeast used in numerous human clinical studies and is Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant mineral.
Scientific evidence shows that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer, especially prostate, bladder, thyroid and breast cancers.
Selenium is essential for 11 selenoenzymes (selenoproteins).
There are two major families of selenoenzymes, glutathione peroxidases and deiodinases.
Glutathione peroxidases converts lipid hydroperoxides (oxidised fats), which causes heart disease and stroke, to less harmful components.
Deiodinase enzymes regulate the metabolism of thyroid hormones via the thyroid gland. Because the thyroid helps control sleep, selenium is found helpful in establishing normal sleeping patterns.
Recently discovered, selenoenzyme thioredoxin reductase has been linked to vitamin C metabolism.
Selenium deficiency can cause Keshan disease, or cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease).
Those especially requiring selenium are people with frequent blood donations or transfusions, those on dialysis, those suffering from HIV or Crohn's disease.
Some researchers have found that diabetics have more selenium than non-diabetics, so assume that selenium gave them diabetes. However other larger studies have proven that diabetes risk is lowest among those with the highest selenium levels (by examining selenium in toenail clippings from thousands of people) which is more accurate because this gives average selenium levels over the last year.

Suggested Use
1 capsule daily.
Do not exceed recommended dose.
Toxic levels are 5000 mcg daily, but doses over 400 mcg daily is the recommended maximum.
No problems have been recorded at twice this dose (800 mcg) but a margin of safety is essential, and LeanMachine does not recommend anything over 200 mcg daily and any extra may have little or no extra benefit.
Any higher dose must be under medical supervision.
Many people cannot get enough for the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of 50 mcg from diet alone, especially from processed foods.
Additional benefits may be obtained by taking this product with vitamin E.

If taking a multivitamin or other supplement, check for selenium content.
If all selenium taken adds up to 300 mcg or more, use the tablet version instead of capsules. These are easier to split into half a tablet daily.
Even though selenium may help prevent many cancers, do not take if there is susceptibility to Squamous Cell Carcinoma (a common, mostly harmless skin cancer).
Selenium may interact with antacids, chemotherapy drugs, corticosteroids, niacin, statin drugs, and birth control pills. Consult your doctor if taking any of these medications.
Selenium may thin the blood, and this may increase the effects of warfarin in the body. Dosage of warfarin may have to be reduced to reduce risk of bruising and bleeding.
