Health Information

Selenium

A natural Selenium supplement from high selenium yeast.

Selenium is an essential mineral found in minute amounts in the body. It closely resembles sulphur in its physical properties.

What benefits can Selenium play in the body?

Selenium is a natural antioxidant and is one of the essential body substances that can be used in a preventive manner for many diseases including cancer, stroke, arteriosclerosis, cirrhosis, arthritis and emphysema. Pancreatic function depends on Selenium.

Can't we get selenium from our food?

Selenium is deficient in New Zealand soils. Low levels of selenium are found in some cases of cancer, thyroid dysfunction, and may worsen a iodine deficiency state. This may reflect long term impairment of cell protection capacity.

Low levels of selenium have been observed to increase with supplementation. This is reflective in hair samples.

Food sources of Selenium include

Alfalfa, barley, broccoli, brazil nuts, butter, cashews, crab, celery, eggs, fish, garlic, human breast milk, kidney, liver, mackerel, oysters, peanuts, seleno-yeasts, tuna, wholegrain cereals, yeast, organ meats, onions and turnips.
