Description of the research topic:

We created a model after testing the development of creating Nano sized basic Selenium and the resulting products containing Lactomicrosel in animal and experiments and human studies. This model can explain the low toxicity and the good adaptability of Basic Selenium. In order to justify it and gain a deeper understanding of this process we have the task of developing Nano sized basic Selenium enriched with stable carbon isotope and studying the resulting material in animal experiments. In the feeding experiment in the organs of the animals (mouse, rat, poultry) the absorption rate of Selenium can be determined based on the amount of Selenium and the isotope rate and its change in biological organisms, which enable us to understand the process in depth and the difference in the behaviour of certain Selenium forms.
