What is Selenium ?
Selenium is an essential mineral, meaning it cannot be made in the body and it can be consumed through diet. It is a trace mineral, so we only need a very small amount to keep healthy. Selenium is found in soil, so can be sourced though the diet from foods grown in selenium-rich soils. It also can be sourced from water. Selenium is most well-known for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants fight free radicles in the body and help protect cells from damage. Selenium also plays a key role in metabolism. This essential trace mineral also helps keep the heart, joints, eyes, immune system and reproductive system healthy. At Evergreen Healthfoods, we understand it can be difficult to ensure your body is receiving the correct amount of nutrients. Although it is best to consume nutrients via your diet, sometimes supplementation is necessary.
