Dietary intakes of selenium in the UK during the 70’s were nearly twice the level we consume today! Moreover, official figures from MAFF show that the selenium intake for 80% of adults in the UK is now below the
recommended daily intake.
This situation is due in part to the reduction in imports of selenium-rich, high protein wheat used for bread making from North America, coupled with the wide usage of selenium-antagonistic artificial fertilisers and acid rain exposure.
As a vital component of the body’s antioxidant defence system, a key player in thyroxine metabolism as well as an invaluable nutrient in reproductive health, falling dietary intakes are a real cause for concern.
LAMBERTS has selected the organic Seleno-L-Methionine form of selenium because of its superior absorption. Each tablet contains 200µg of selenium which is twice the level found in most products.
