Our Selenium enriched
The endless world of cyanobacteria and their evolution in controlled environments has always been a source of inspiration for the scientific teams at Domain Spirulina and Andalutek (a Group subsidiary specializing in biotechnology) in their research and development work.
This scientific interest has enabled these research teams to develop an original and innovative concept involving the intelligent and selective integration of active molecules inside microalgae.
This new enrichment and induction process makes these phenotyped microalgae a natural reservoir of highly digestible and bioavailable micronutrients.
Selenium can be added to our diet in simply mineral form (sodium selenite) or metabolized by a living organism, as in the case of our selenium-enriched spirulina. The latter will incorporate it in the form of a specific amino acid – selenomethionine – into its proteins.
In this organic form, selenium no longer presents problems of intolerance, as in the case of the mineral form, where a large proportion is stored in the liver. In fact, on contact with gastric juices, spirulina cells immediately burst, releasing soluble organic selenium for easy absorption.
