Selenium plays a key role in immune and antioxidant function. It is involved in making a free radical defending enzyme that protects your cells from damage. Read about selenium and Avian Flu risk. Your thyroid also relies on selenium for optimal function.

Your Needs

Selenium deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in the UK. If you are a smoker and / or drink 2 units or more of alcohol per day, or regularly take pain-killers such as paracetamol or aspirin, or do intensive exercise, your needs for selenium will increase. Read the latest study on selenium.

Symptoms of Inadequacy

Low selenium intake is associated with increased risk for cancer, heart disease, low immune function, premature ageing, cataracts, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Low thyroid hormone may be an indicator of inadequacy. However, do remember you do not need to have any of these specific conditions to require additional levels of this mineral.

DO NOT consume more than 400 mcg of selenium per day from all sources on a regular on going basis once you have achieved optimal status. A daily dose of BodyBio® liquid selenium provides 200mcg.

Food Sources

Wheat germ and Brazil nuts are rich sources of selenium, with whole grains and other nuts and seeds are also good sources.
