Selenium is an essential trace element needed by the body. Selenium helps the immune system work properly, as well as in reproduction.
It also helps prevent damage to cells and tissues and can help with heart and thyroid health – find out more information in this Healthline article on the benefits of selenium.
You can get selenium from certain foods, such as eggs, fish, meat, and brazil nuts. But a supplement may be useful if you’re unable to obtain it from your diet.
Our selenium supplement also includes antioxidant vitamins A, C and E. As well as being beneficial in themselves, they can help facilitate each other’s absorption.
