Twenty-seven New Zealand women received daily for 4 wk, 200 micrograms selenium as sodium selenite, 170 mg alpha-tocopherol acetate, or a placebo. Se supplementation raised platelet selenoglutathione peroxidase (Se-GSHPx, p less than 0.001) and also Se and Se-GSHPx in whole blood and plasma. Se concentrations and Se-GSHPx activities in liver biopsies taken after supplementation were greater (p less than 0.05) for the Se group and a good correlation was found between Se and Se-GSHPx in liver and… CONTINUE READING
