Selenium is the key nutrient for counteracting viral infections via antioxidant enzymes and is essential to maintain normal thyroid function.
Selenium is an essential ingredient of the glutathione peroxidase enzyme, the most important enzyme for immunocompetence (natural resistance) against viral infections, for example cancer, influenza, HIV/AIDS etc. It has also been shown that adequate selenium intake is necessary for normal thyroid hormone metabolism.

Zinc is essential for immuno-competence, especially against lung and throat infections, and more than 200 enzymes in the body depend on adequate zinc.
Zinc is needed for the body’s defensive (immune) system to properly work. It plays a role in cell division, cell growth, wound healing, and the breakdown of carbohydrates.

Chromium is an active component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which enhances tissue sensitivity to insulin and glucose utilization.
Chromium stimulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, which are important for brain function and other body processes. It also aids in insulin action and glucose metabolism.
2.5 mg per ml
Copper is essential for red blood cell formation, free radical defence, immuno-competence and bone formation, especially hard bone.
Copper is a major component of catalytic centres of different redox enzymes. Therefore adequate copper status is essential for normal physiological functions such as cellular respiration, free radical defence, synthesis of melanin pigment, and, more importantly, cellular iron metabolism for haemoglobin formation. Copper is an essential component for the formation of bone and therefore essential for the prevention of bone abnormalities, especially osteoporosis, in humans.
5 mg per ml
Manganese is essential for immuno-competence, the formation of hard healthy bones, especially healthy joint and oestrogen production in women.
Manganese assists in the processing of cholesterol, carbohydrates, and protein. It might also be involved in bone formation.
TRACE MINERALS HELP MAINTAIN THE BODY’S NATURAL IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Trace minerals are essential to good health because they are used in multiple reactions in the body to ensure optimal growth and development. They contribute to enzyme function, bone formation, muscle contraction and hormone production. More importantly, Selenium supports the production of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, a primary anti-oxidant, which promotes optimal functioning of the natural immune system.
Unlike tablet-form supplements that use hardening agents, the trace minerals in Seleno-Zinc Plus are premixed into a liquid carrier and contain no ingredients that could potentially prevent absorption, thereby increasing absorption and utilisation by the body.
