Selenium is an essential trace mineral and functions as part of the antioxidant
enzyme glutathione perioxidase and complements the actions of vitamin E. It is bonded to
the essential sulfur amino acid, methionine, in a naturally occurring form as found in the diet.
Selenium is found most abundantly in Brazil nuts, organ meats, seafood, and wheat germ.*
Selenium is an essential trace mineral. Plant foods are the major sources of selenium
throughout the world; however, the content of selenium in food depends on the Selenium
content of the soil where plants are grown or animals are raised. It is naturally found in
Brazil nuts, organ meats, seafood, and wheat germ.
Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important
antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular
damage from free radicals. Many of the benefits of selenium are related to its role in the
production of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. This enzyme is a critical component of
the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms.
In addition to its antioxidant properties, Selenium plays a role in prostaglandin production,
thyroid hormone activation, and the maintenance of healthy immunity.*
