What is Selenium?
Selenium is a trace mineral, meaning we only need it in very small amounts to keep healthy. It is most well-known for its antioxidant properties. Selenium antioxidants fight free radicles in the body and help protect cells from damage. Selenium also plays a key role in metabolism and keeping the heart, joints, eyes, immune system and reproductive system healthy. Selenium is found in soil, so can be sourced though the diet from foods grown in selenium-rich soils and water. Although it is best to consume nutrients via your diet, sometimes this is not possible and supplementation may be necessary.
