Selenium

What is Selenium? 

Selenium is a mineral found in the earth’s soil. It is made of various enzymes and proteins which help to protect against cell damage (free radicals)and help fight infections. It can also help to make DNA. It is also a Glutathione cofactor and is needed for glutathione activity. Anyone who is monitoring their glutathione levels should also consider their selenium levels too.

What Does It Do?

It is needed for:

  • Regulating Metabolism
  • Regulating Thyroid Hormone Health
  • Protection from Infection
  • Reproduction

Its main function is to support the immune system, cardiovascular system, and the thyroid which is part of the endocrine system. It can also influence cognitive function but more evidence is needed to support this.

Who is Affected by a Selenium Deficiency? 

Most people who are affected usually suffer from auto-immune diseases such as HIV or anyone undergoing dialysis, having Crohn’s disease, or any other digestive order where nutrients can be lost. Those who are pregnant will also need extra Selenium as other vitamins and minerals can be lost during pregnancy.

Symptoms 

Systems of a mineral deficiency include:

  • Male & female infertility
  • Fatigue/ Tiredness
  • Brain Fog
  • Weakened Immune System
  • Hair Loss
  • Muscle Weakness

Where Can it be Found?

Selenium-rich foods include beef, chicken, organ meats (liver), Brazil nuts, rice, beans, whole wheat bread, and yellowfin tuna. Anyone who follows a vegetarian or vegan diet might struggle to get enough, so supplements could be recommended.
