As Breast Cancer Awareness Month draws to a close, I want to highlight our Ultimate Selenium™, a product you can give to those you love who are conquering breast cancer, or any type of cancer.
The following is an excerpt from the Youngevity Catalog regarding Ultimate Selenium™. I will retype the text to make it easier to read.
For decades, the importance of selenium was unclear. Today, it is one of the most-documented and widely-studied trace elements known. Selenium is an essential nutrient to the human body, which humans require, but cannot make. This nutrient must be provided in the diet or in supplement form.
Selenium is also considered to have “antioxidant properties” which have been identified by the National Academy of Sciences as “a substance in foods that significantly decreases free radicals (e.g. reactive oxygen) and reactive nitrogen substances (e.g. N-nitroso compounds).” Vitamins C and E are examples of other antioxidants.
Even if I were not a Youngevity Associate, I would still take Ultimate Selenium™ and recommended it to those I care about. Why? Because I believe in taking the best nutritional products available (best is not determined by price, it is determined by effectiveness and results). Why do I feel Youngevity is the best nutrition company? 1.) Because it is the only one with an authorized health claim. 2.) Higher product absorption rates (you are what your body absorbs). 3.) Telephone and In-Person Access to Naturopathic Doctors and Product Formulators for questions and answers. 4.) The reputation of Dr. Joel D. Wallach, DVM, ND.
Here are the health claims regarding Selenium:
The FDA authorized the following health claims submitted by the company and Dr. Wallach.
“Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.”
“Selenium may produce anticarcinogenic effects in the body. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may produce anticarcinogenic effects in the body. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.”
And for something that is not based on drugs, a medical procedure, or surgery, you have to admit, those are some very generous statements by the FDA.
Some things to consider regarding Selenium:
- Reduced cancer deaths by 50% in a university study
- Found to increase some immune factors by up to 79%
- Just a few forms of cancer that seem to be affected by adequate Selenium levels may include: Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Lymphomas, Stomach Cancer, Gastrointestinal Cancer, Bladder Cancer, Lung Cancer, Oral Cavity Cancer, Throid Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Ovarian Cancer
If it fits into your budget, get a Healthy Start Pak and a few bottles of Ultimate Selenium™. Or give the gift of nutrition (that heals the body and helps it to repair and restore the immune system) to someone you love.
