If a selenium deficiency cannot be balanced by means of nutrition, the intake of selenium preparations such as Cefasel is indicated for the compensation of the selenium levels.
The human body produces 25 selenoenzymes which have been known so far. The formation and activity of the selenoenzymes is dependent on selenium. In case of selenium deficiency, these so-called biocatalysts cannot be produced sufficiently. Consequently, important bodily functions such as e.g. cell protection or the function of the immune system would be impaired.
Since the human organism cannot build selenium, it relies on the the daily supply by means of selenium-containing foodstuffs. However, selenium is contained mainly in animal nutrition or Brazil nuts. The adequate daily supply with selenium through nutrition is not always guaranteed.
Cefasel 50 µg contains 50 µg selenium per tablet. Selenium as sodium selenite is well bioavailable and excellently tolerable. The Cefasel pharmaceuticals do not contain any animal ingredients. Therefore, they are as well suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
