Is organic selenium better for animals than inorganic

When considering sources of selenium in the diet it is necessary to take into account recent knowledge concerning its functions and metabolism and to consider possible evolutionary adaptations of the digestive system of animals and birds to organic selenium. This could explain why organic selenium is better than inorganic, and recommend the use of natural antioxidants for feed supplementation.
