Selenium 200 mcg 100 Capsules


Powerful Antioxidant. Selenium is a trace mineral
that is essential to good health. Selenium helps
antioxidants slow down the oxidation process. It
boosts energy and the immune system by
producing antibodies. Selenium also plays a role in
the immune system and in regulating thyroid

Plant foods are the major dietary sources of
Selenium in most countries throughout the world.
The content of Selenium in food depends on the
Selenium content of the soil where plants are grown
or animals are raised. For example, researchers
know that soils in the high plains of northern
Nebraska and the Dakotas have very high levels of
Selenium. People living in those regions generally
have the highest Selenium intakes in the United
States. Soils in some parts of China and Russia
have very low amounts of Selenium. Selenium
deficiency is often reported in those regions
because most food in those areas is grown and
eaten locally.

Selenium content of foods can vary. For example,
Brazil nuts may contain as much as 544
micrograms of Selenium per ounce. They also may
contain far less Selenium. Too much Selenium can
be harmful. The safe upper limit for adults is 400
micrograms a day.
