Action of selenium

Selenium is a key component of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. The main role of this enzyme is to protect cells and tissues of the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Many scientists consider the cell damage caused by free radicals to be one of the root causes of aging. Selenium also plays an important role in the production of thyroid gland hormones. The hormones from this gland assist in the development and differentiation of all cells in the body, plus they help regulate protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism.

Selenium for the thyroid gland
However it is less known that – besides all of these effects – it plays an important role in the healthy functioning of the immune system. It also helps maintain normal production of iodine, supporting thyroid gland hormones.

Selenium for immunity
Selenium plays an important role in maintaining health. Being a component of the antioxidant enzyme - glutathione peroxidase - supports the defense of cells and tissues against the harmful effects of free radicals. It supports the functions of the immune system and is also essential for the proper production of thyroid hormones. People on a one-sided diet (such as a strict vegan diet) tend to be deficient in selenium, so supplementation may be necessary. It is worth knowing that selenium enhances the effects of other antioxidants, such as: vitamin A, C and E.

Selenium slows down the aging of tissues and helps maintain their youthful elasticity. It neutralizes the action of certain carcinogenic substances and protects against some neoplastic diseases.

The importance of selenium in menopause
It is beneficial for menopausal women as it soothes hot flashes and other related ailments.

Selenium for men
Men need this microelement even more than women, because selenium accumulates in the testicles in their bodies and is excreted from the body along with the sperm.

Selenium against dandruff
Taking selenium reduces the symptoms of dandruff on the scalp.

It is worth remembering that selenium and vitamin E work closely together, enhancing each other's effects - together they protect the heart more against the harmful effects of free radicals than either of them separately. Selenium deficiency has serious effects.

Discovery of selenium

ears of cornDiscovered by Jons Berzelius in 1817, the trace element selenium gets its name from the Greek word “selene”, because of its white color. For a long time after discovery, it was considered to be a toxic substance, but subsequent scientific investigation revealed selenium to be an indispensable element of proper nutrition

Selenium sources

two fishSelenium can be found in seafood, meats and grains, although the amount can vary greatly. The amount in meat depends on the selenium content of the grass or grain that is fed to the cattle, and this, in turn, depends on the selenium content of the soil where the plant was grown. The highest natural concentrations of selenium is generally found in brazil nuts. Differences between geographic areas are reflected in the amount of selenium in plants, including its amount in the ears of cereals. In New Zealand, where the soil is poor in selenium, cattle suffer from heart and muscle diseases (e.g. myasthenia gravis). Inhabitants replenish selenium deficiencies in the diet by consuming wheat imported from Australia. Similarly, in the Chinese province of Keshan, the high-prevalence heart disease was the result of a lack of selenium (hence the name Keshan disease). Dietary selenium deficiencies may interfere with the body's defenses and be more susceptible to infections.
