Selenium 100 mcg – 90 tablets
Selenium is an essential trace mineral and a potent antioxidant. As an antioxidant, Selenium helps recycle vitamin E in the body, which in turn supports the antioxidant defence system of the cells. It also helps the reduction of vitamin C. Selenium is a component of specific proteins called selenoproteins that are active in the defence of the body against free radicals. Selenoproteins and their antioxidant products scavenge cell-damaging free radicals.
It is often assumed that we get enough selenium through plant foods and dietary sources, such as garlic, Brazil nuts, and certain vegetables. Unfortunately, in many places the soil is badly depleted of its selenium content because of acid rain, which can dramatically change the chemical composition of the soil. As a result, soil acidification alters of the ability of the soil to bind with vital elements such as selenium for assimilation into edible plants.
Immune system: Selenium is an antioxidant and is a constituent of more than two dozen selenoproteins that play critical roles in protection from oxidative damage and infection.
