A valuable resource for the medical community at a time when the COVID-19 infection strain is on the rise once again
Bengaluru-based Sami-Sabinsa Group has recently unveiled the book on Selenium, a mineral that has been extensively investigated by medical professionals in recent times. The book “Selenium: In Health And Diseases,” edited by Dr Muhammed Majeed, Founder and Chairman of Sami-Sabinsa Group, delves into the chemistry, biochemistry, and biology of the selenium element in relation to human health.
The recent pandemic has put a spotlight on the need to maintain a healthy immune system, particularly in instances where there are limited therapeutic options. This has put selenium’s immune capability in the centre stage, which aids in reducing oxidative stress, inflammation, and disease pathogenesis as well as preventing viral infection and strengthening immunity.
The scientific publication underlines Selenium as an essential micronutrient for both human and animal health, albeit in a minuscule amount. “The book discusses the importance of selenium supplements in enhancing immunity, supporting a healthy thyroid, preserving gastrointestinal health, promoting reproductive function, aiding in cancer therapy, and enhancing skin and hair health,” said Dr Muhammed Majeed.
The book also mentions various selenium products offered by Sami-Sabinsa Group, including PeptiSeLect®, MethySelene®, PeptiSelene®, Selendrovir®, ImmuActive®, Selenium Select®, and SelenoForce®.
“Our clinical evaluation of ImmuActive®, a herbal and mineral supplement, demonstrates that it can effectively manage COVID-19 symptoms as an adjunct therapy,” Dr Majeed added.
