Reacted Selenium by Ortho Molecular Products provides 200 mcg per serving of selenium, formulated using the amino acid chelate form of selenium (selenium glycinate) for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization and gastrointestinal (GI) comfort.*
Maintaining optimal selenium levels helps support a positive mood, improves antioxidant status, and maintains normal inflammatory balance and heart health.*
Selenium is a trace mineral and part of more than 20 proteins that play critical roles in supporting:
Reacted Selenium is formulated to optimize bioavailability. It employs the superior amino acid chelate form, selenium glycinate complex, which has a high level of stability. This helps it avoid food and other minerals that compete for absorption in the digestive tract. The stability allows for enhanced absorption in the digestive tract.*
Selenium and the Thyroid
Selenium concentration is higher in the thyroid gland than in any other organ in the body. Selenium, like iodine, has a significant supporting role in thyroid hormone synthesis and metabolism.
Epidemiological evidence supporting a relationship between selenium levels and thyroid gland function includes an analysis of data on 1,900 participants in the SU.VI.MAX study indicating an inverse relationship between serum selenium concentrations and thyroid health.(9)
A cross-sectional study in 805 adults in Denmark with mild iodine deficiency also found a significant inverse association between serum selenium concentration and thyroid volume in women.(10)
