SmartSel®, the “smart” alternative to organic selenium and free sodium selenite.
SmartSel® is a microencapsulated source of sodium selenite.
Selenium is an essential nutrient with a major role in preventing oxidative stress.
Sodium selenite is exposed to chemical reduction and subsequent insolubilization in the rumen by the microflora causing a reduction of selenium bioavailability.
Microencapsulation can prevent the selenium precipitation in the rumen resulting in higher levels of
selenium absorbable in the small intestine with higher levels in plasma and milk,
as shown in the scientific literature (Grilli et al., 2013, 7: 1944 – 1949).
