Description

Selenium is distributed throughout the tissues of the body and is concentrated in the kidneys, liver, spleen, testes, and pancreas.  Selenium is present in nearly every cell but is particularly concentrated in the kidneys, liver, spleen, testes, and pancreas for their proper function.

Studies have revealed that selenium helps fight the most severe chronic illness, as well as heart disease and even the aging process.

The body uses Selenium to fight viral infections including Herpes simplex and zoster, and may even slow the progression of HIV/AIDS.

Other benefits of selenium include
studied protection against heart disease
the protection against toxic metals and minerals
and the neutralisation of alcohol, smoke, and fats
Help to increase male potency
involved in maintaining hair, skin and eye health.

Selenium Is Found In the Following Foods
Brazil nuts, poultry, seafood, and meats, oats and brown rice.  Our soils however are depleted of selenium, and although these foods concentrate it, selenium content may vary tremendously depending on the soil quality where they are grown.

Selenium is a trace element, constantly required to maintain good health and essential for many biological processes.  Selenium acts as an antioxidant against free radicals that could damage our DNA.  It is often combined with C and E to further support the free radical scavenging or anti-oxidateve processes, and add an anti-inflammatory aspect to its action which may be needed to help fight rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, and eczema.

Selenium RDA and Supplementation
The recommended daily allowance for selenium is 70mcg for men and 55mcg for women.  To provide major health benefits, practitioners often suggest dosages of up to 600mcg daily.

Selenium deficiency symptoms include muscular weakness and fatigue.  It is rare to be actually deficient because the mineral is available in many foods.

Selenium overdose may cause depression, nausea and vomiting, nervousness and loss of hair and fingernails along with bad breath.

Benefits of Selenium Against Severe Degenerative Disease
Supplementing Selenium at a rate of 200mcg per day has been shown to substantially lessen the incidence of some of our most severe and life-threatening diseases.

Selenium has also been shown to increases the ratio of HDL ("good") cholesterol to LDL ("bad") cholesterol, which is a marker to indicate improved cardiovascular health. Smokers and heart attack or stroke victims may gain substantial cardiovascular benefits from selenium supplementation, including a reduction in the likelihood of clotting and clogging of the arteries and arterioles.

Selenium is also being observed for its potential to protect against cataracts and macular degeneration.  It is also implicated in converting thyroid hormone from T4 to the active T3.

A recent study published in Agriculture Research, suggests that a deficiency in either selenium or vitamin E can stimulate latent, inactive viruses to reactivate. This may help explain why selenium is effective against  herpes viruses including shingles, which are caused by reactivation of a dormant  virus.

Dosage:
1 - 3 Capsules per day - preferably with meals.
