The men and women in the study had a daily dietary selenium intake of approximately 55 mcg/day. Intakes of selenium in the United Kingdom had fallen from a mean of 60 mcg/day in 1991 to a minimum of 30 to 40 mcg/day in 1995–2000; in 2010, the mean intake was 48–58 mcg/day [Hurst 2010].read more
The evidence from clinical studies shows that high-selenium yeast preparations give the best health outcomes [Alehagen; Blot; Clark; Yu].
Today, I want to look at the documented properties of the high-selenium yeast preparation that was developed for use in the PRECISE studies. PRECISE is the acronym for PREvention of Cancer by Intervention with SElenium. The PRECISE studies were designed to test the effectiveness of selenium supplementation at preventing cancer.
The preparation is also the high-selenium yeast preparation used in the KiSel-10 study of combined selenium and Coenzyme Q10 supplementation of healthy elderly citizens to protect against heart disease. Professor Urban Alehagen and the researchers at Linköping University in Sweden have written about the special interrelationship between selenium and Coenzyme Q10: our cells need adequate selenium status to obtain optimal concentrations of Coenzyme Q10, and our cells need adequate Coenzyme Q10 status to realize optimal selenoprotein function [Alehagen].read more
