This essential trace element plays a crucial role in maintaining the immune system and contributes to metabolism, fertility, cell division and DNA synthesis as well as keeping eyes, hair and nails healthy.
This essential trace element is a component of more than 25 enzymes involved in a variety of important reactions in the body. Selenium is important for maintaining normal functioning of the immune system and protecting cells from oxidative stress and also contributes to thyroid function and fertility as well as the maintenance of hair and nails. Sodium selenite exhibits a somewhat lower absorption rate than organic selenium compounds but makes up for this shortcoming with its very high bioactivity. The selenium in sodium selenite is directly and exclusively available for the formation of selenoproteins; it is not incorporated into any other proteins, which means that sodium selenite is regulated through selenium metabolism, ensuring that excess selenium is immediately excreted to prevent it from accumulating in the body.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is the precursor of the active coenzyme pyridoxal phosphate (also known as pyridoxal 5′-phosphate, P5P and PLP), one of the most important coenzymes for humans. Vitamin B6 is important for the synthesis of the amino acid cysteine and contributes to normal homocysteine, glycogen and protein metabolism as well as the normal functioning of the immune system. Vitamin B6 is also important for the nervous system and energy metabolism.
Vitamin C protects cells from oxidative stress and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal cognitive function, normal energy metabolism, normal functioning of the immune and nervous systems and normal collagen production for normal functioning of bones, teeth and skin.
