Dr. Hull's Review of Selenium by NOW Foods

Selenium by NOW Foods

What is Yeast-Free Selenomethionine (Selenium)?

Selenium is an important antioxidant, and scientific evidence suggests consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer.

Selenium is as essential trace mineral and functions as part of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione perioxidase. It is bonded to the essential sulfur amino acid, methionine, in a naturally occurring form found in the diet. Selenium is found most abundantly in Brazil Nuts, organ meats, seafood, and wheat germ. Selenium is free of sugar, salt, starch, milk, egg, corn, wheat, yeast, gluten, soy.

Dr. Hull's Review of Yeast-Free Selenomethionine (Selenium):

Selenium is an important antioxidant, and also plays a role in healthy thyroid function, and in every cell that uses thyroid hormones. Selenium may inhibit Hashimotos's disease, in which the body's own thyroid cells are attacked as alien. 

Dietary selenium comes from nuts, cereals, meat, fish, and eggs. Brazil nuts are the richest dietary source. Selenium is an essential trace element, but it can be toxic if taken in excess or if your body is not depleted in it. Do not supplement with selenium unless you know that you are depleted in it, and if depleted, supplement with a maximum dose of 200 mcg daily.
