This formulation provides natural Vitamin E in a dry (non-oily) form, for those who have difficulty digesting fats and oils. It is combined with the important trace mineral Selenium. As a component of the antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase, Selenium helps to fight cell-damaging free radicals in the body. It spares Vitamin E, which in turn boosts the cell's antioxidant defense system. This synergistic, antioxidant formulation is offered in a convenient, two-piece, vegetarian capsule.
