Product Description

    • In addition to the established antioxidant vitamins and minerals, Selenium-ACE with VitaBerry Plus contains the polyphenols, anthocyanins, ellagic acid and other antioxidants found naturally in fruit and vegetables
    • Extensive scientific research shows that an adequate intake of the antioxidant mineral selenium and vitamins A, C and E play a part in all-round antioxidant protection against the damage caused to the body by excess free radicals and helps support the body’s own natural defences.

      Key Points and Benefits
    • Recent reports have revealed that selenium levels in the average person in the UK are only marginally adequate
    • The more free radicals present, the greater the need for antioxidant nutrients in our diet
    • A large number of successful human studies have been conducted using supplemental selenium yeast or higher levels of selenium intake from the diet
    • Despite the acknowledged health benefits to be derived from fresh fruit and vegetables most people do not eat the recommended five portions per day
    • Free radicals are volatile, potentially toxic substances produced when we breathe and through exposure to sunlight, exhaust fumes, tobacco smoke and other pollutants as well as during infection and inflammation.

      Antioxidant nutrients are able to quench free radicals before they can damage cells or tissues
    • Since most of the active nutritional components in fruits and vegetables are antioxidants, accurate measurement of antioxidant activity serves as a good indicator of potential health benefits
    • A healthy diet should form the basis of good nutrition
    • This is largely because of a reduction in the amount of selenium we get from our food - mainly due to a decrease in the use of North American wheat (high in selenium) for bread making
    • Selenium can be obtained from whole-wheat cereals, kidney, liver, shellfish, brazil nuts and oily fish
    • Selenomethionine is the major component of selenium yeast
    • Over the past few years an increasing number of people have begun to obtain selenium from a nutritional supplement
    • In particular:
    • Inorganic forms of selenium are not natural substances in any food
    • Sports people, as higher energy requirements may increase the need for antioxidant protection.
    • Human studies around the world continue to show the key role that it plays in maintaining long-term health
    • Yeast converts inorganic selenium mainly into selenomethionine using the same pathway as foods such as cereals
    • What is Selenium?

      Selenium is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in human nutrition
    • VITAMINS A, C, and E
      Vitamin A is necessary for the maintenance of healthy mucous membranes, an important part of a fully-functional immune system
    • Some of the ingredients do have additional properties.

      Selenium has a vital role in immune function, involved in the development of all white blood cells and it is also required for healthy function of the thyroid gland
    • A word about selenium yeast
    • skin, arteries, connective tissue
    • However, leading a busy life often makes eating regular, nutritionally balanced meals difficult
    • Long-term studies have also shown this form of selenium to be safe within the parameters of upper intake levels
    • The selenium that we consume from food sources is mainly the organic form
    • Selenium can only be obtained through dietary intake
    • Selenium-ACE with VitaBerry Plus - Main Ingredients and their Nutritional Roles
      All the major ingredients in Selenium-ACE VitaBerry Plus have been included for their antioxidant, free radical scavenging capabilities and for helping to maintain a healthy immune system
    • This amount compares unfavourably with guidelines, known as the reference nutrient intake, of 75 mcg per day for men and 60 mcg per day for women (Report by Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy, 1991).

      What is VitaBerry Plus?

      VitaBerry Plus is a blend of concentrated fruit extracts and whole-fruit powders containing grapes, grape seed extract, bilberries, blueberries, cranberries, cherries, raspberries and strawberries which provide nutritious, high-ORAC antioxidants.

      What does ORAC stand for?

      The Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity (ORAC) is the scientific standard for measuring the antioxidant potency of foods
    • As a result, in the UK, the daily intake of selenium from the food we eat has declined from 60-63 mcg per day in the 1970s and 1980s to 29-39 mcg per day (reports by Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, 1997, 1999; Barclay et al 1995)
    • Convenient one-a-day formula guaranteed to deliver the antioxidant equivalent of two portions of fruit and vegetables.
    • It was not until 1973 that the importance of selenium in a nutritional role was ascertained
    • Antioxidants are more effective when a wide variety of fruit and vegetable derived compounds are taken together rather than individually.

      What is an Antioxidant?

      Antioxidants help protect cells and tissues from damage by Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), also known as ‘free radicals’
    • It is the natural source found in most foods
    • It also has a role in the regeneration and recycling of vitamin E.
      Vitamin E works in conjunction with selenium and may help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.

      These plant derived substances, namely sulforaphane and polyphenols have strong antioxidant properties, are anti-inflammatory and help stimulate natural detoxifying enzymes.

      Who would take Selenium-ACE with VitaBerry Plus?

      Every adult in the UK in view of the fact that selenium soil levels in most parts of this country are low
    • Those who wish to maintain a healthy immune system
    • Famously regarded as being important for eye health, it also has a part to play in male and female fertility.
      Vitamin C also helps boost the immune system and is required for the production of collagen which is a structural protein to help resist wear and tear on tissues, e.g

  • Wassen International has researched and introduced many new problem solving nutritional supplements over the last thirty years. The portfolio of products contains a thoughtfully formulated range, containing research proven ingredients, to meet the needs of today.

    In theory, a varied well-balanced diet should provide all the daily nutrients necessary for good health but, in reality, this is often not the case. The fast paced world in which we live and work continues to take its toll. Food sourcing and farming methods affect the vital intake of minerals. For example, the amount of selenium, an essential trace mineral, in the UK diet is half what it was 30 years ago. Additionally the effects of pollution and an increasing reliance on convenience foods, can affect the daily intake of vital nutrients. Regular supplementation with vitamins and minerals can help to maintain essential nutrient levels within the body.

    Research remains the cornerstone for all Wassen supplements. Nutrition is a comparatively new science and new studies continue to build on the understanding of the way in which nutrients, or lack of them, play a role in our lives. Relying on sound scientific studies to provide the guidance for ingredients, the products contain synergistic combinations of nutrients that help consumers address their health concerns. The company is constantly seeking to develop new innovative supplements.


  • A healthy immune system is essential if we are to maintain our short and long term health. A number of nutrients, including the minerals selenium and zinc and vitamins A, C and E, have been identified as playing a specific role in maintaining the immune system. A diet rich in fruit and vegetables and whole-grains is the best source of antioxidant nutrients. However our dietary intake of selenium is half what it was 20 years ago and many people are choosing to take a supplement such as Wassen Selenium-ACE. We have recently formulated Selenium-ACE EXTRA and renamed it Selene-Activ. It contains 200mcg of selenium yeast together with other selected nutrients which provide a synergistic formulation designed to help maintain body cell integrity.
