Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to good health and is not required in large amounts. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Free radicals are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system.
Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. To read the NIH’s official ‘claims’ on Selenium benefits, click here . We are very proud to share that Youngevity was an active participant in the court case challenging the FDA in order to get these claims on Selenium passed! It is an important antioxidant shown to protect against cell-damaging free radicals. A ‘must have’ product for maximum health benefits on so many fronts.
Keep in mind that Selenium, along with other minerals, is not distributed evenly throughout the Earth’s crust. We never really know what vegetation is selenium rich and which is poor. That’s why supplementing is so critical. Look at this map of Selenium across the United States. It will demonstrate this point.
