Seleno-Iodide provides a synergistic blend of iodine, along with its trace mineral partner selenium, to help maintain iodine levels and reduce oxidative stress for optimal thyroid and breast health. Seleno-Iodide provides 3 mg of iodine combined with 100 mcg of selenium sourced from SelenoExcell®, a highly bioavailable, organically bound selenium.
- Supports Thyroid Health
- Supports Healthy Synthesis of Thyroid Hormones
- Helps Maintain Healthy Breast Tissue
Seleno-Iodide is designed to provide key nutrients for optimal thyroid and breast health.
A powerful antioxidant enzyme system is activated to ensure the thyroid is protected from ongoing free radical production. Glutathione is one of the key antioxidants used to neutralize free radicals in the thyroid. Glutathione requires selenium to activate the enzyme glutathione peroxidase (GPX). Selenium-containing GPX in the thyroid cell plays a pivotal role in maintaining normal thyroid functioning by protecting the gland from oxidative stress by removing excess H2O2 from the tissues.8,9 Subsequently, supplementation with selenium has been shown to modify inflammatory and immune responses in patients with immune challenges and decrease TPO antibodies.
In addition to supporting thyroid hormone production, research shows iodine acts as an antioxidant, supporting a healthy thyroid gland and protecting a variety of tissues, including mammary tissue, the eyes and gastrointestinal lining. In other tissues, such as the mammary glands, the protective role of iodine is connected to its antioxidant function.3,4 Iodide can act as an electron donor in the presence of hydrogen peroxide and peroxidase, thereby decreasing damage by free oxygen radicals (Figure 1).
