Hi Carla,

Do you agree, Jeff, that it may be useful to recap on the different kinds of selenium? Here is an article describing these:

Summary

Selenium is a trace element now recognized to be essential in human nutrition. It has attracted increasing scientific interest over the past few years for its powerful cancer-preventing potential. Selenium occurs in multiple forms in nature, three of which are especially important in preventing human cancers. Each of these three forms of selenium has produced intriguing findings. Laboratory studies reveal the reason: each form of selenium has a unique suite of mechanisms, and each affects different cancer types somewhat differently. The human body handles each form of selenium in a different fashion, and each form contributes uniquely to preventing cancer from emerging. Only by combining all three forms of selenium can you be sure of optimizing your cancer risk reduction. In that way, you'll be taking advantage of all of the 12 or more known mechanisms by which selenium compounds prevent cancer.

Which, of course, still does not suggest particular products.

RESEARCH TIME!

... ref, selenium products I have just followed the advice of a commentator on the life extension website and emailed them for leads to just such a product.

Who knows, something might come of it!

I had been ordering sodium selenite (Twin Lab) for the past 2 years. In the past couple months the price has skyrocketed and many sites are sold out or no longer carry it (?) Gretchen

Astaxanthin:

A growing body of scientific literature demonstrates that natural astaxanthin surpasses many of the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene and other carotenoids. Research has also shown that natural astaxanthin has up to 550 times the antioxidant activity of vitamin E and 10 times the antioxidant activity of beta-carotene

Hawaiian Astaxanthin is derived from natural Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae, grown in Hawaii, under the intense Hawaiian sun, the way Mother Nature intended. Astaxanthin is a red carotenoid and an exceptionally powerful antioxidant that can give you results you can feel. Astaxanthin is best absorbed when taken with food that contains fat (e.g. nuts, avocado, coconut oil, etc.) 

(I don't have shares!)

https://www.naturalmedicinejournal.com/journal/2012-02/astax

  • Carotenoids are well known for their therapeutic benefits in the ageing process and various diseases, because of their antioxidant properties. Astaxanthin is a xanthophyll carotenoid like lutein, zeaxanthin, and cryptoxanthin, which do not convert to vitamin A.
  • According to a review, carotenoids are of interest based on their beneficial mechanisms of action for cancers, cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration, and cataract formation. Numerous studies support the use of astaxanthin as a potent antioxidant that may be beneficial in decreasing the risks of certain chronic diseases. It may also reduce oxidative stress in the nervous system, reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases. Additionally, astaxanthin has well-documented anti-inflammatory and immune-stimulating effects.
Question is, should one buy the Hawaiian, highly recommended at 120 x 4mg capsules for £23.60 or the Swansons 30 x12mg at £11.00 ... decisions, decisions! 
Went for the Swansons - economy won!

Serrapeptase!

Yes I know I am being rather busy today. It is probably all those supplements I have been taking (plus Christmas and New Year fare, of course!)

This is important regarding the coating of Serrapeptase capsules:

http://www.serrapeptase.org/enteric-coating/

HPMCP ENTERIC COATING: DO YOU WANT TO EAT THE CONTAINER TOO?

 

HPMCP (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose Phthalate)is used to protect enzymes from acid. The European Union banned phthalates in 2003 and all phthalates in toys in 2005. China and Mexico have also prohibited the use of phthalates in toys. The U.S. has been a bit slower to join these prohibitions. (And ironically, the other countries' bans are based largely on U.S. research.) California became the first state to ban the manufacture, sale, and distribution of children's products containing phthalates in 2009. In March of the same year, the U.S. Senate passed legislation introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein for a similar ban in toys.

 

So, if phthalates are banned in toys, why would you be OK with consuming them in your dietary supplements? We wouldn't, and we strongly urge you to take the time to find out what products contain them. So far, the only mainstream enzyme products, including Serrapeptase, that don't contain these plastic chemicals are made by Arthur Andrew Medical®. No matter how any other products we compare, we feel that Arthur Andrew Medical's stand on not using synthetic chemicals in their products says a lot about the company..

 

Arthur Andrew Medical developed Serrétia™, a 250,000 SPU Serrapeptase supplement (the strongest available) that uses Acid Armor® capsules. These all-natural phthalate free, capsules break down slowly to help protect their contents from prolonged exposure to acid. Acid Armor® capsules are designed to break down as soon as they have exited the stomach, maximizing potency as well as the absorption period.

Sorry for the delay in responding but I was waiting forTwinlab to respond to my phone calls and emails....still waiting.....confirming their discontinuing sodium selenite. It appears from canceled order notices I've now received from several outlets that Twinlab is out of the sodium selenite business. I like the selenium combination offered in the Super Selenium Complex from Life Extension. There is no question it offers the superior approach. Regarding Astaxanthin, the 12 mg is my choice too. It's unfortunate a substance like phthalates could be found  in anything we ingest so reading labels and calling manufactures is the only way to guard against questionable ingredients. Authur Andrew offers a good serrapeptase product. Roger, have you seen a reduction in spleen size or other improvements with the serrapeptase?
