Description
SELENIUM WITH ZINC AND VITAMINS A, C & E
Selenium, Beta Carotene (pro-vitamin A), Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc amongst other substances are often described as powerful antioxidants. It has, within the last twenty years, become more apparent that these nutrients make a significant contribution to health because they have the ability to defend the body from free radical attack. Free radicals can be defined as unstable atoms, ions or molecules and are generated in many ways, from normal biochemical pathways such as respiration, to such external sources as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, UV light, drugs and alcohol. Free radicals are also produced by the body to protect it from invading bacteria. If free radicals are produced in the body they can damage the body’s tissues and blood vessels, degrade collagen (required for healthy ligaments, tendons, cartilage and spinal discs) and damage joints by attacking the synovial fluid (lubricant). The damage caused by free radical attack can result in many of the most life threatening diseases of mankind as well as other conditions that lead to a poor quality of life. Selenium 200ug, with Zinc and Vitamins A, C & E Natures Aid Selenium with Zinc and vitamins A, C & E is an antioxidant formula that has been specially developed to help protect the body against the damaging effects of free radicals. L-Selenomethione is a yeast free organic form of Selenium.

Properties
Selenium—part of the enzyme glutathione peroxidise, is an antioxidant which protects the body by defending the damaging effects of free radicals and reduces the harmful oxidation of fats in the blood and in doing so may help maintain a healthy heart and circulation. It is also part of the enzyme iodothyronine deiodinase which converts the thyroid hormone to its active form.
Vitamin A / Beta Carotene—Beta carotene scavenges free radicals and can also ‘quench’ oxygen radicals. One molecule of beta carotene can quench up to a thousand oxygen radicals.
Vitamin B6—methionine is converted to homocysteine in the body and back to methionine by a process which is stopped by B6 deficiency, to prevent homocysteine build up, which is undesirable, it is essential therefore that sufficient B6 is present when methionine is ingested. Vitamin B6 is also important for the absorption of zinc.
Vitamin C—transforms the radical form of Vitamin E back into the protective form, demonstrating the need for both vitamins. Also important in collagen formation and iron absorption.
Vitamin E—concentrates in cell membranes and attaches itself to lipid peroxy radicals thus becoming a radical itself and requiring Vitamin C to convert back. Vitamin E can also scavenge free radicals before they hit cell membranes. Also important is cell respiration, reproduction and enhancing vitamin A activity.
Zinc—is involved in stabilising membrane structures and in protection at the cellular level by preventing lipid peroxidation and reducing free radical formation. Also important in cell division, growth and reproduction and the removal of toxic metals.
Copper—is important in many processes including the conversion of tyrosine into pigment which colours hair, helps the body oxidise vitamin C, helps build nerves fibres and is also involved in protein metabolism. It is also important for iron absorption and is added to prevent copper deficiency due to the presence of zinc.
Contra-indications / Precautions
Selenium is toxic in high doses and no more than 200μg per day should be taken.
