What is Selenium?
Selenium is a micronutrient vital for many processes in the body. This includes maintaining a healthy immune system and plays an important role in normal thyroid hormone metabolism. Selenium also helps maintain male fertility, by promoting sperm motility.
Most soils in the UK and Europe are deficient in selenium, which translates in low-selenium of farmed food and eventually, low selenium status of populations who consume local food.
Selenium is an essential component of the key antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase which works with other antioxidants (see below) to protect the cells of the body.
What are antioxidants?
Our zinc and selenium supplements also contain vitamins C and E. These are important, synergystic micronutrients that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This 'antioxidant' property results in increased protection of cell damage from free radicals, which are particles that smoking and pollution may generate.
Furthermore, zinc and selenium contains vitamin B6 which contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is a naturally occurring amino acid in the body that has associations with cell injury if it's metabolism is insufficient.
How does selenium help oral health?
Selenium helps to protect the body from the toxic effects of heavy metals such as mercury from amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings release mercury vapour which is absorbed into the bloodstream with potentially harmful effects. Selenium binds to heavy metals rendering them harmless.
We recommend 1-2 tablets per day, or as directed by a physician.
Our Selenium and Zinc supplements are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
