Selenium Plus, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supply 200 mcg of Selenium, 100 mg of Vitamin C, and 60 IU natural vitamin E in each capsule.
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, but when an excessive number of free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially cell membrane lipids and proteins. This, in turn, is thought to contribute to a number of degenerative diseases.
Vitamin E is an especially valuable antioxidant in the cell membranes, where it prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by trapping free radicals.
Selenium Plus may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to increase their intake of selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E.

- Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) – 100 mg
