BeOrganic Selenium is a dietary supplement which is a source of natural and easily absorbed selenium. It contains a blend of organic extracts from sunflower seeds and holy basil leaves, standardized to contain 0.5% selenium.
Selenium is one of the microelements necessary for the proper functioning of living organisms. It is so important that it is called the mineral of life. It has no biological activity itself; it is carried out by the dependent enzymes and proteins of which selenium is part.
Described preparation instead of synthetic selenium has in its composition selenium obtained from ecological plant extracts. The producer has bet on sunflower seeds and holy basil leaves, which are exceptionally rich in this valuable microelement. They come from ecological sources and the extraction process is carried out without chemicals or artificial solvents.
Importantly, the selenium contained in the extracts comes in the form of several different, natural forms, among which one can distinguish both inorganic selenates and organic forms (mainly selenomethionine and selenocysteine). This composition is characterized by excellent bioavailability, results in providing a wide range of health benefits for the body.
Selenium helps to protect the body from damage caused by reactive oxygen and nitrogen forms. This activity is shown mainly by selenocysteine, which is found in enzymes belonging to the group of peroxidases.
An adequate supply of selenium is important for maintaining proper thyroid function. Deiodinase, an enzyme responsible for the formation of thyroid hormones, depends on the presence of this element. Furthermore, selenoproteins protect the thyroid tissue from the harmful effects of free radicals.
Strengthening the condition of hair, skin and nails
Researches have revealed that selenoproteins play an important role in the growth and proper functioning of keratinocytes. Specialists combine selenoprotein deficiency with nail weakening, excessive hair loss and deterioration of skin condition.
In conclusion, BeOrganic Selenium is an excellent way to prevent selenium deficiency and to make up for its possible deficits. The preparation is fully natural and can be freely taken by vegetarians and vegans.
Selenium is best absorbed in the presence of protein and vitamins A, C and E. For this reason, the supplement should be taken with a meal which contains as little carbohydrates as possible and at the same time as much protein as possible.
Selenium supplementation is recommended especially for people who consume a lot of carbohydrates and highly processed food. These people are at a higher risk of deficiencies of selenium because sweetened confectionery and sugar-sweetened cereal products can degrade selenium contained in food.

It is supplied the body with food in the form of seleno-amino acids (selenomethionine - gathering supplies, and selenocysteine – a component of glutathione peroxidase, deiodinase and seleno-proteins). Regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland. It affects the growth and development, including sexual development (by increasing production and sperm motility). It affects the flexibility of the tissue, removes some of the toxins from the body and destroys cancer cells and reduces the severity of menopause in women.
