- Only a very small amount of selenium is needed to help your body to function, but a little goes such a long way:
- Selenium functions as part of the antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase (GP), which works with vitamin E in preventing free radical damage
- Research shows that low selenium levels have been found in people with cataracts and taking this supplement has been seen to prevent further growth
- Selenium is important for thyroid function
- Helping restore immune function, it stimulates white blood cell and thymus function
- An essential non-metal and micronutrient, it reduces the effects of mercury toxicity
- Has an overall benefit on the cardiovascular system
- People who are fed intravenously may also risk low selenium levels and so benefit from this supplement
- Aids with inflammatory conditions
