Selenium is a trace mineral and an important part of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. It is an effective antioxidant, especially when combined with Vitamin E. Working as part of this enzyme, selenium, or more specifically, the organic complexes selenocysteine and selenomethionine, helps protect intracellular structures by preventing the formation of damaging free radicals.
Like other antioxidant supplements, selenium slows chemical aging and helps maintain elasticity of bodily tissues, organs, supports liver function, acts as a heavy metal antagonist, provides immune support, supports foetal development, supports healthy neurotransmitter function, eye health, supports thyroid hormone conversion, helps to produce Coenzyme Q10 and supports healthy cardiovascular function.
In New Zealand, farm soils are deficient in selenium. Individuals consuming foreign produce may be getting enough selenium from their food but with this in mind however, selenium’s protective functions require much greater intakes, which usually exceed recommended daily allowances. Selenium is frequently lacking in Western diets, once again due to selenium deficient farmlands. Individuals at risk of selenium deficiency include high alcohol consumers, smokers, individuals with heavy metal poisoning and those not getting enough in their diets.
