Add Selenium (SE-Methylselnocysteine) to your treatment protocol for all viruses that utilize Selenium as a building block, because viruses that deplete cellular Selenium can result in more aggressive viral mutations. Viruses that encode seleno-proteins include HIV, both Hepatitis B & C, Influenza, Coxsackie and Ebola, among others.
Bottle Content: 90 Vegetarian Capsules
Ingredients: SE-Methylselenocysteine (Selenium)
Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate
Dosage and Use: 1 capsule (200 mcgs) for every 40 pounds of body weight, in divided doses.
Time of Day: With Meals
Quantity Needed for One-Month Supply: 1 to 2, according to dosage.
Cautions: Selenium can have some toxicity at high dosages. Different types of selenium vary in their toxic potential. The organically derived SE-methylselenocysteine in the Life Extension product that we at Alchemist Lab carry and prescribe is much safer and more active than other forms of selenium.
The other factor for caution is similar to Vitamin C and colds. When your body is fighting a virus that encodes seleno-proteins it needs much more dietary selenium than other people. In his remarkable research, Dr. Passwater gave Hepatitis C patients increasingly high doses of selenium. He found that mild side effects (hair fell out and nail beds became loose) took place at around 3100 mcg daily of selenium and quickly went away when the dose was lowered.
Passwater also studied the people of Iceland, who have an average daily dietary intake of 1300 mcgs of selenium, with no long-term consequence.
Selenium encourages the latency of the Hep C virus. The recommended dosage of 200 mcgs for every 40 pounds of bodyweight for people with HCV came from his work.
