Selenium is a trace mineral that is a key player in several functions your body performs daily. The greatest concentrations are found in the thyroid gland. Selenium is a component of the enzyme that helps convert T4 to T3, producing the active form of thyroid hormone that your body needs.
Selenium also plays an important role in prostate health, helping to maintain healthy levels of Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA).
Selenium also plays a big role in reproduction and DNA synthesis.
Although selenium is a mineral, it acts as an antioxidant as well by enhancing Vitamin E’s antioxidant activity and also helps replenish glutathione peroxidase, the body’s main free radical scavenger.
A selenium deficiency is quite uncommon, so why supplement you ask? Well, for a couple of reasons. First, there are some people who do in fact have a selenium deficiency due to a poor diet and gastro-intestinal conditions that impair absorption of the nutrients your body needs to heal and thrive. Second, many studies tell us that having selenium levels above the RDI (recommended daily intake) is when it starts to have therapeutic effects, like lowering PSA for example.
