Beta-Glucan-Seaweed - Tocopherol (Natural alpha-tocopherol, d-alpha-tocopherol) E vitamin
1 Medical mushrooms have been used for more than 3,000 years in Chinese medicine and Western science has for the last 50 years documented the medical efficacy of active substances in fungi. These active substances are polysaccharides consisting of long, branched chains of glucose molecules called alpha and beta glucans. The human immune system has learned to work with these substances, the immune cell receptors need stimulus beta glucan to perform optimally.
Beta glucan is a soluble fiber that acts as a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is found in the cell walls of whole grains, seaweeds, mushrooms, and yeast.
2 Contains more than 30 easily absorbable minerals among others calcium, potassium, iron, sodium, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium. In addition, it contains vitamin A, B, C, E, folic acid and K
Selenium is found in all body cells and are included in the proteins in the same manner as sulfur. Selenium and sulfur of importance inter alia for muscle function, blood circulation and sperm (sperm). Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that is contained in glutathione oxidase, which is an important part of the body's defenses against free radicals. Selenium is important for the immune system and a normal cell function. Selenium also plays a role in the activation of thyroid hormone from the thyroid gland.
Absorption and function of the body: Selenium in organic compounds in the diet is absorbed efficiently (90%) of the small intestine, while inorganic compounds absorbed slightly worse (60%). Selenium is transported in the blood protein, preferably VLDL (very low density lipoprotein). The body of the harness, in the form of seleno-amino acids, are of 5-15 mg mainly in the liver and kidneys. Together with vitamin C, E and lecithin prevents selenium rancidity in the cells and thereby contribute to a healthy circulation. Selenium is also important for the immune system (especially against virus attacks), as well as protection against radioactive radiation, heavy metals and impurities in it promotes hepatic detoxification capacity. Selenium protects eyesight, hair and skin from early aging changes. More than half of the body's selenium-containing wastes are excreted through the urine.Deficiency symptoms: There are shown a link between heart attacks and low level of selenium in blood serum. Selenium Deficiency has been associated with cardiovascular disease, cancer, infertility, osteoarthritis (osteoarthritis) and other inflammatory conditions. It is deemed likely that a high selenium intake may reduce the risk of certain cancers. A Chinese study showed a lower risk of stomach cancer by supplementation of selenium combined with vitamin E and beta carotene. In animals, it is shown that the lack of both selenium and vitamin E leads to necrosis (liver cell death), degeneration of muscles and impaired fertility. Selenium is contained in a substance, "Factor 3" which in animal experiments effectively prevents necrosis in rats.
Keshan Flu is a heart disorder that affects children and fertile women in a belt with very selenium poor bedrock and soils in China. There is a possibility that selenium deficiency gives rise to new, resistant virus, and the Keshan disease is a result of selenium deficiency and viral infection. Weak immune system, liver damage, premature aging, sclerosis, heart disease, infertility, arthritis and joint disorders, skin disorders, impaired vision and heavy metal poisoning (f. Ex. Of mercury poisoning) can be associated with selenium deficiency.
Dietary Sources: fish, shellfish, fish liver, eggs, flax, buckwheat, legumes, kale, chicken meat, milk, garlic, broccoli, onions, wheat germ, whole grain products, and fungi. 100 grams of fish provides about 20 to 30 mcg selenium. Whole grain products of American wheat is also a good source of selenium in a typical Norwegian diet. Dietary surveys have estimated a daily intake of 70 to 80 mcg in typical Norwegian food. Lack states can occur in vegans / vegetarians who do not eat fish, as well as in young and elderly with a monotonous diet.

Tocopherol (Natural alpha-tocopherol, d-alpha-tocopherol) Beta-Glucan from Seaweed : kelp, a name commonly used as a name for marine brown algae, ie seaweed and tare) consists of dried bladder plant material, but it is often mixed with pigtail (Ascophyllum nodosum). The whole plant is used.
