Selenium, while little known by the public, is a well-studied element. It is involved as a catalyst in several important enzymes. The most well-known function is in the liver where selenium catalyzes or activates the glutathione peroxidase enzyme. This enzyme plays its most significant role in the liver as it cleanses the blood. Without it, the liver could not do its job properly leaving our system full of toxins. Selenium plays an important role in the thyroid where, along with Iodine, it catalyzes the T4 and T3 enzymes which are critical for energy production.
Along with the thyroid, Selenium is also found in sizable amounts in healthy breast and prostate tissues. Selenium is not widespread in the earth’s soils. Consequently, the ability to obtain Selenium in our foods on a regular basis is difficult at best. Supplementation is the best way to insure a steady supply and a steady supply is essential for optimal health. Supplementing with Selenium helps to support a healthy immune system, thyroid and liver function, and breast and prostate tissues.*
