We examined utilization of selenomethionine (SeMet) and selenite in six lactating (L) and six nonlactating (NL) women, 2-3 mo postpartum, and seven never-pregnant (NP) women by use of stable-isotope tracers. All groups had similar selenium status at the start of the study. Significantly more selenium from SeMet than from selenite was absorbed and appeared in plasma in all groups. Milk contained more selenium from apparently absorbed SeMet than from selenite. More selenium from apparently… CONTINUE READING
