Selenium is an essential trace mineral that inhibits the oxidation of lipids (fats) and works together with vitamin E to assist in the production of antibodies and maintain healthy liver, pancreas, thyroid, and heart function. It also serves as an antioxidant by activating glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that helps protect cell membranes from free radicals. In addition, selenium may help support the body’s natural defenses against damage from exposure to certain environmental toxins. Adequate levels of selenium are essential for healthy immune responses. Selenium may play a role in the normal production of antibodies, proteins produced by the immune system to respond to foreign substances that may pose threats to the body. *
Selenium is required for the normal activity of the enzyme that converts the thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) to the biologically active thyroid hormone T3. This is especially important because this active form (T3) is the body’s primary hormonal regulator of metabolism and is important for normal growth and development. *
