Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element important for animal health and production as it reduces DNA and cell damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Many of the antioxidant functions of Se occur through selenoproteins, such as glutathione peroxidase (GPx). With all the many different Selenium sources on the market, why use a Se-proteinate source?
Se plays a critical role in the animal body, with some functions only just being explored. Se-proteinate is not stored in animal muscle, as a result, it is readily available to be incorporated into GPx, resulting in a better more efficient response to ROS accumulation and stress.
