Why Choose Selenium?

Selenium is an essential mineral micronutrient found in soil, and although it is required only in small amounts, it is vital to our health. Amongst a variety of roles, it contributes to the normal function of the immune system, and helps protect cells from oxidative stress.* Selenium contributes to the normal function of the thyroid gland and maintains normal hair and nails.* In regards to male fertility, it helps with normal spermatogenesis; the production of sperm.*

Selenium deficiency, or simply having low levels, can affect health. Our selenium is from selenomethionine (a naturally occurring amino acid) and provides over 180% of the adult daily requirement for health (Nutrient reference value).
