Lynside® Forte Se+ is a bioavailable selenium-enriched yeast for support of cells protection and immune functions.
During the fermentation process, selenium is metabolized by the yeast, to transform it into organic selenium, the selenomethionine. Selenomethionine in Lynside® Forte Se+ is the highest bioavailable source of selenium, twice higher than selenium salts, the inorganic form.
A bioavailability depending on selenium source
Selenium is a trace element found in low concentration in a wide variety of foods. Selenium is existing into 2 major forms: inorganic and organic. The main difference between these two forms is that organic selenium is linked to an amino acid thus forming selenoproteins presenting an increased bioavailability compared to inorganic forms.
