What is selenium? Selenium is a mineral found in soil, water, and some foods. It is required in trace amounts for normal health, and is an essential element in several metabolic pathways.
Why is selenium necessary? Selenium has antioxidant properties that help the body prevent cellular damage, and one of its most valuable roles is as a cofactor of an important antioxidant enzyme in the body called glutathione peroxidase. Selenium also helps support a strong immune system and is necessary for thyroid function.*
How Can selenium support thyroid function? A disruption in thyroid functioning potentially cause problems with appetite‚ mood‚ and sleep. Some over-the-counter supplements are thought to help people suffering from these issues. Selenium (a natural mineral) is used in the body to regulate the thyroid hormone; as a result‚ it may help with mild underactive thyroid or an overactive thyroid. Unfortunately‚ simply incorporating foods that contain selenium into your diet may not provide sufficient levels to promote thyroid health.*
