Modern farming practices, characterized by high socking densities, highly productive genetics, early weaning and uncontrolled high or low temperatures, impose a cumulative stress on the animal. The resulting high concentrations of oxidative stressors in animal cells can compromise the immune and reproductive systems, and also reduce muscle, milk and eggs production, with significant economic effects.
Adding Selsaf® to animal feeds has been seen to improve the overall health status of the animal by stimulating antioxidant defences. This improves not only immune and reproductive functions, but also animal performance and the quality of animal products.
Selenium from organic sources is assimilated into the animal proteins found in muscle, milk and eggs more easily.
This assimilated selenium can then function as a reserve for the animal during situations of extreme stress or for transfer to their offspring, or even humans.
Natural source of organic selenium for all species of animals, Selsaf®3000 is produced from a specific yeast strain CNCM I-3399, and through a mastered manufacturing process which allowed Phileo to increase the selenium concentration to 3000 ppm.
A major characteristic of Selsaf® 3000 is its consistent composition in two active seleno-compounds: selenocysteine and selenomethionine. Its standardized production process and quality certifications guarantee a high concentration of organic selenium and a consistent active seleno-compound profile, with 2/3 selenomethionine and 1/3 selenocysteine and other active seleno-compounds.
Thanks to its excellent bioavailability, Selsaf3000® allows better selenium assimilation via an active transport in the intestine and increases selenium levels in the blood compared to other mineral and organic selenium sources.
Selsaf® ensures a dual short and long term protection thanks to its 2 active seleno-components.
Seleno-cysteine is essential for Glutathion peroxidase activity, a major anti-oxydant selono-enzyme involved in the protection of the body cells against free radicals.
Seleno-methionine is directly incorporated as a substitute of methionine during the synthesis of the protein to build up a reservoir/storage of Selenium, that can be released during episods of stress.
