Bluebonnet’s yeast-free selenium glycinate capsules provide 200 mcg of elemental selenium per serving from a low molecular weight glycinate amino acid complex from albion. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Selenium (micromineral) is a constituent of glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that helps neutralize the effects of free radicals, heavy metals and other toxins within body tissue. Selenium supports the immune system, promotes energy production, and plays a role in tissue elasticity and pancreatic functions. In addition, selenium helps support the health of menopausal women, as well as the reproductive health of men by assisting in the production of healthy semen. Dietary sources high in selenium include whole grains, bread and fish.
Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special “carriers” like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids, thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids – a basic ionic and hydrogen bond – will not produce a stable product. Mineral “chelates” created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient’s availability.
Albion® Laboratories has developed a process that produces a stable, nutritionally functional mineral chelate, which provides reliable and effective mineral nutrition. Albion’s patented technology replicates the body’s natural chelation process, essentially turning inorganic minerals into small, highly bioavailable organic molecules (non-ionized). This process ensures that the mineral will remain stable throughout digestion and ultimately result in maximum absorption.
