Selenium Secure™ - 90 Veg capsules
Beeyoutiful®'s Selenium Secure™
Selenium is a very highly researched and studied trace mineral. It has been shown in studies to protect against radiation and the ravages that it can have on the kidneys. One study suggests that selenium intake may reduce the risk of bladder cancer in women. However, one smaller study showed no reduction in risk. Based on these studies, FDA concludes that it is highly uncertain that selenium supplements reduce the risk of bladder cancer in women. Selenium has also been known to be helpful in strengthening the immune system and may provide anti-oxidative protection.
From National Institutes of Health:
"Selenium deficiency produces biochemical changes that might predispose people who experience additional stresses to develop certain illnesses . For example, selenium deficiency in combination with a second stress (possibly a viral infection) leads to Keshan disease, a cardiomyopathy that occurred in parts of China prior to a government-sponsored selenium supplementation program that began in the 1970s [2,5,8,21]. Before the Chinese government supplementation program, adults in the Keshan disease areas had average selenium intakes of no more than 11 mcg/day; intakes of at least 20 mcg/day protect adults from Keshan disease .
Selenium deficiency is also associated with male infertility and might play a role in Kashin-Beck disease, a type of osteoarthritis that occurs in certain low-selenium areas of China, Tibet, and Siberia [1,2,5,6,8,22]. Selenium deficiency could exacerbate iodine deficiency, potentially increasing the risk of cretinism in infants [2,5]."
Bottom line: you don't want to be deficient in selenium.
