Selenium is a trace element found in soil, and is required in small amounts to maintain good health. Australian soils are known to be deficient of this vital nutrient which is essential for many bodily processes. Selenium acts as an antioxidant against free radicals that damage our DNA. Selenium binds to metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum and silver minimising their absorption in the body.
Selenium may also support healthy thyroid and immune function. Other benefits of selenium include the neutralisation of alcohol, smoke, and fats.
Adults: Take one capsule daily or as directed by your healthcare professional. To be taken with food.
A daily dose of 150mcg, for adults, of selenium from dietary supplements should not be exceeded as it is toxic in high doses.
