Active Ingredient History

Selenium yeast is a feed additive for livestock, used to increase the selenium content in their fodder. It is currently an approved form of selenium for human consumption in the EU and Britain. Inorganic forms of selenium are used in feeds, sodium selenate and sodium selenite, which appear to work in roughly the same manner, but this is a product that can be patented, which means producers can demand premium prices. It is produced by fermenting Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a selenium-rich media.   Wikipedia
