What is Selenium?

Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to optimal health. Few people – including physicians – realize that selenium is available in several different forms. Each form of selenium acts along a different pathway to support healthy cell division. For optimized selenium support, one should supple­ment with all three of the following forms of selenium:

  • Sodium selenite
  • L-selenomethionine
  • Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine

Studies suggest selenium deficiency can pose a significant health risk.(2-7) For example, the body utilizes selenium to make gluta­thione peroxidase, an endogenous antioxidant enzyme almost as important as SOD (superoxide dismutase).(8) Selenium also supports normal thyroid and immune function in healthy individuals.(8) *These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
