Selenium plus Vitamin E, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supply 400 IU ofl vitamin E and 50 mcg of selenium in each gelatin softgel.
Vitamin E is one of the body’s most important antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants protect healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable chemicals formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources, such as pollution and cigarette smoke.
Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function, however, maintaining an appropriate balance is an important factor for cellular health, especially cell membrane lipids and proteins.
Vitamin E is an especially valuable antioxidant in the cell membranes, where it prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by trapping free radicals. his helps stabilize and protect cell membranes, especially red blood cells and tissues sensitive to oxidation, such as the lungs, eyes, and arteries.
Selenium plus Vitamin E may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to increase their intake of selenium and vitamin E.
