Looking for additional antioxidant protection?
Selenium is an essential mineral shown to provide antioxidant support and help boost the immune system.* Antioxidants are substances that help inhibit oxidation and the damaging effects that free-radicals have on your body. Exposure to environmental pollutants, everyday stress, and even natural body processes that convert oxygen to energy all create damaging free-radical compounds in the body. These free-radicals contribute to physical and mental aging. Cells, proteins and DNA are all subject to attack and damage from free-radicals. Antioxidants are an integral part of the body's free-radical defense system and help protect cells from the damage they may cause. Selenium is vital in the production of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which is part of the body's primary internal antioxidant defense system. Though required only in small amounts, selenium supplementation is an easy way to ensure the body receives this important mineral.
Major sources of selenium are fruits and vegetables. However, the amount of selenium in any particular one is directly dependent on the amount of selenium in the soil in which it is grown. Meat, bread and some nuts are also common sources of dietary selenium, however specific amounts vary between products. The selenium in these foods may be destroyed when foods are overcooked, overprocessed or overrefined.
