Organic Selenium Antioxidant Supplement is an essential trace mineral, that the body require to function properly. Selenium is an antioxidant that plays a role in the normal function of the immune system. It is especially powerful when taken in combination with Vitamin E. Antioxidants help in the fight against damaging particles in the body known as ‘free radicals’.
Most of the selenium in the body comes from food, and the amount of selenium that is actually present in the food we eat depends on the type of food, and where it is grown or raised – brazil nuts, crab, liver, fish, poultry, and wheat are generally all good sources of selenium.
However, the selenium content in soil has declined over the past 60 years. Selenium is regretfully deficient in most soils, and therefore crops and fruits worldwide.
The average daily intake of selenium is 29 – 36 micrograms per day. Many experts recommend that the daily intake should be 200mcg (of elemental selenium). Due to the deficiency of selenium in our soils, selenium supplementation is essential for the good health of human beings.
