Although the significance of this mineral was not widely acknowledged until 1979, this trace mineral is essential for many body processes. The mineral is present throughout the body but is most abundant in the kidneys, liver, spleen, pancreas and testes.
As a vital component of the body’s antioxidant defence system, a key player in thyroxine metabolism as well as an invaluable nutrient in reproductive health, falling dietary intakes are a real cause for concern.
Selenium is an essential mineral with several important roles in the body. It forms an integral part of the free radical scavenging enzymes Glutathione Peroxidase which has an important natural anti-oxidant role in the body. The selenium content of food is dependent on the levels present in the soils.
Selenium acts as an antioxidant, which are substances that help our bodies to destroy or quench harmful free radicals that are produced quite naturally in the human body and which, if allowed to proceed unchecked, can harm tissues and organs.
The most abundant sources of selenium include Brazil nuts, seafood, poultry and meats. Grains, particularly oats and brown rice, may also have significant amounts, depending on the selenium content of the soil in which they were grown.
