Protect yourself from the bad guys!
By Nicole Ely,

The protection you can find is in the trace mineral, selenium, due to its antioxidant power. Our VIVA product, SelGuard® contains this beneficial nutrient, which is an essential mineral required by the body. It has been shown in research to enhance the antioxidant enzyme levels in the blood to control the excess of free radicals (the bad guys), which affect our healthy cells. This protection also helps strengthen immunity. It is not produced in the body so supplemental sources from food and nutritional supplements are necessary. Food sources containing selenium are; eggs, chicken, fish, oysters, mushrooms, walnuts, whole grains, radishes, turnips, and swiss chard to name a few. Unfortunately, these food sources do not provide the optimum amount of selenium needed by the body because of over-processing of foods and lack of trace minerals in the crop soil. Therefore, by taking SelGuard® you can be assured that you are getting an adequate amount of this trace mineral. You can also feel confident when you take SelGuard® with its safety-tested, bioavailable and absorbable form of selenium, known as selenium yeast, that has been produced through a patented, proprietary method developed at VIVA Life Science. It is important to also mention the fact that VIVA's SelGuard study has been published in Anticancer Research, International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment.
