A mineral that helps produce important antioxidants so cells can properly function and bolster your immune system.
What is Selenium?
Selenium is required to manufacture important antioxidant compounds in the body that help cells function properly, support immune health, and prevent damage caused by free radicals—the rogue forms of oxygen that roam the bloodstream looking to wreak havoc on your cells.*
Selenium helps create selenium-containing proteins called, aptly, selenoproteins. Some selenoproteins go one step further by assisting vitamins C and E, which are also antioxidants, to do their job defending your cells against free radicals. Free radicals are generated by everyday living, and in response to cigarette smoke, pollution, excessive exposure to sunshine, and other environmental factors.*
Why is Selenium Important?
Selenium helps convert thyroid hormones to their active forms. Thyroid hormones influence nearly all of the metabolic processes in the body.*
