Selenium is an essential mineral for the human body where it is involved in crucial functions, such as supporting thyroid hormone production, bolstering the immune response and protecting against free-radical damage. Herbs of Gold Selenium contains 150mcg per capsule of this nutrient in a bioavailable selenomethionine form. Research shows that levels of this nutrient are low in New Zealand soils, which leads to low plant levels, and low levels in those consuming the plants for food, I.e., us. Research in Australia also indicates that though levels may not be as low as New Zealand, they are far from ideal. It has been suggested that one billion people worldwide are deficient in this mineral.
Selenium is required for the deiodinase enzymes, which are responsible for the conversion of thyroxine (T4) into Triiodothyronine (T3), which is the body's most potent thyroid hormone. Therefore, a selenium deficit, accompanied by normal T4 levels and TSH levels, may set one up for the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism, yet with normal standard blood test results. Selenium regulates the body's most powerful endogenous antioxidant enzyme, called glutathione peroxidase.
Glutathione helps to protect against a number of chemicals and free-radicals that can be injurous to cellular health. Furthermore, Selenium has been shown to be helpful for positively influencing bone marrow white blood cell (immune cells) synthesis, and activity of these cells. This may lead to increased resistance to infection from a number of pathogens, such as viruses and bacteria. Herbs of Gold Selenium provides this nutrient in a well-absorbed chelate form.
Selenium provides a key micronutrient that has a wide range of beneficial effects, including immune supportive, antioxidant boosting and thyroid hormone regulating.
