Seeking Health Selenium

Selenium is an essential trace element that inhibits the oxidation of lipids (fats) and works synergistically with vitamin E to assist in the production of antibodies and maintain healthy liver, pancreas, thyroid, and heart function. It also serves as an antioxidant by activating glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that protects cell membranes from free radicals.

Seeking Health Selenium is a natural, organic form of selenium that makes up the majority of dietary selenium intake. This form is better absorbed and retained in the body compared to inorganic forms of selenium, such as selenite.

The Selenium by Seeking Health formulation uses L-selenomethionine, a highly bioavailable, yeast-free form of organically-bound selenium chelated with methionine that supports glutathione activity. Unlike inorganic forms of selenium, Selenium by Seeking Health is not adversely affected by vitamin C. 

Benefits of Selenium -

Antioxidant defense : Selenium is an essential constituent of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which scavenges free radicals and reduces cellular peroxides into water and other harmless molecules. Glutathione peroxidase levels are closely tied to selenium status, thus inadequate levels of selenium may lead to a decreased defense mechanism against oxidative damage. Selenium also inhibits the oxidation of lipids (fats) that might otherwise lead to cell membrane destruction and provides additional antioxidant support by sparing vitamin E. In addition, selenium helps protect tissues against damage from exposure to certain heavy metals including mercury, cadmium, and lead.

Immune function support : Adequate levels of selenium are essential for optimal immune responses. Selenium has been shown to assist in the production of antibodies, proteins produced by the immune system to respond to foreign substances that may pose threats to the body.

Thyroid support : Selenium is required for the normal activity of the enzyme that converts the thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) to the biologically active thyroid hormone T3. This is especially important because this active form (T3) is the body’s primary hormonal regulator of metabolism and is important for normal growth and development.

Suggested Use : Take one capsule daily or as directed by a physician.

About Seeking Health, the company

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.

During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.

This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.

Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.

  • • Without water, we die.
  • • Without food, we die.
  • • Without probiotics, we get digestive disorders.
  • • Without multivitamins, we become depressed, fatigued and sick.

“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”

-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

Seeking Health believes that the root cause for many health conditions and supplements stem from ineffective digestion, environmental exposures, poor diet, and lack of a healthy social outlet and inlet.

  • • Once digestion is restored and optimized with the best probiotics, digestive enzymes, stomach acid and intestinal repair nutrients, one is able to absorb nutrients from foods and high quality multivitamins.
  • • Once environmental exposures are reduced, one is able to reduce toxic burden which then frees up nutrients to work in promoting health and preventing disease.
  • • Once diet is optimized, nutrients flood in, energy increases, blood sugar stabilizes and the immune system balances.
  • • Creating a social outlet and inlet allows the parasympathetic nervous system to regain control over the reactive sympathetic nervous system, allowing countless nutrients to be used proactively and in a protective manner instead of being wasted on producing stress hormones.

Seeking Health is here to see you get better, and stay better. Their true passion is prevention.

Seeking Health is based in Bellingham, Washington and operated and managed by a team dedicated to bringing you better health through the best quality supplements, prebiotics, probiotics, and multivitamins.

Seeking Health brings you effective formulas produced without preservatives, colors, titanium dioxide, coloring, or gluten.
