Selenium (as SelenoExcell high selenium yeast) is synthetic. Selenium is commonly known as "nutritional yeast" - Saccharomyces cerevisiae. However, it is sterilized (killed) before encapsulation. Because the yeast is "inactive" or dead, it is not able to reproduce within the human body and tests negative for yeast and mold.
