Selenium is a trace element that is indispensable for the growth and functioning of live cells in humans and animals. Many Dutch people consume too little selenium despite a good diet. This is because there are no longer enough of these trace elements in European soil. As a result, not only crops, but also meat and dairy products contain too little selenium.
There are organic and inorganic forms of selenium. Plants take selenium from the soil and convert it into organic forms that can be easily absorbed. L -(+)- selenomethionine is the form of selenium that is most prevalent in natural foods.
L -(+)- selenomethionine is an amino acid L-methionine with a selenium atom replacing the sulphur atom. Selenomethionine is thus something very different from selenium chelated to methionine (or other amino acids). Selenomethionine is unique because selenium as a whole is part of the molecule, and is therefore completely incorporated into the body proteins. This makes selenomethionine not only safer, but also more bioavailable than other inorganic types of selenium. L -(+)- selenomethionine is rapidly and fully absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.
Inorganic forms of selenium are for example sodium selenite and sodium selenate; these are not natural forms of selenium.
Beyuna has therefore opted for selenomethionine and bioperine. Bioperine is black pepper extract, containing standard 95-98% Piperine.
