selenium and cancer
Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on February 17, 2009
Selenium is not only protective against cancer it should be part of anyone’s anti-cancer treatment. But what form of selenium should you take? selenomethionine is the most bioavailable form – the cheaper form, selenite, is only half as bioavailable. But selenite is certainly better than no selenium at all. In fact, you just have to take twice as much selenite as selenomethionine to get the same effect so now it comes down to cost. If selenomethionine is more than twice the cost of selenite, the bang per buck conclusion is to go for selenite. If on the other hand it is less than twice the cost…well, you can come to your own conclusion.
