Selenium is an essential mineral that supports heart health, thyroid function, and optimal immune function.*
As a mineral co-factor, selenium supports the body's natural antioxidant systems, which protects against oxidative damage and supports healthy aging for your body and mind.*
The richest food sources of selenium are brazil nuts, seafood and organ meats. Low levels of selenium can have an adverse impact on the heart, joints, eyes, and the immune, endocrine, and reproductive systems.*
Maintaining an optimal selenium level supports normal cell function and differentiation, and healthy heart, connective tissue, eye, liver, and thyroid function.* Selenium is great mineral to help preserve a healthier body and support healthy living.*
Thorne offers selenium bound to methionine for optimal absorption – without adding unnecessary additives or preservatives.
Support for Thyroid Health*
Selenium supports normal thyroid function in healthy individuals and is important for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland.* It is also necessary for converting the thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) to the active T3 form (triiodothyronine).* Healthy thyroid function benefits energy levels, metabolism, mood, and healthy hair and skin.*
Supporting Healthy Aging*
Selenium benefits powerful antioxidant functions in your body by supporting the glutathione and superoxide dismutase systems.* Antioxidants like selenium help reduce oxidative damage in the body and brain caused by excess free radicals from environmental toxins, smoking, alcohol use, and stress, while supporting healthy skin, hair, and cognitive function.*
Promoting Optimal Immune Function*
Selenium plays an important role in the body's immune health.* Its antioxidant properties support a healthy inflammatory response and promote optimal immune function.* Studies have shown that an optimal selenium level is associated with a healthy immune response.*
Heavy metal protection*
Selenium supplementation also might exert a protective effect against mercury, cadmium, and other toxic heavy metals.*
