How Defence Works
Selenium stimulates your body's defence response.
An effective weapon for immunity
Selenium contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress indicates an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. When working properly, free radicals help to fight off pathogens which lead to infections. When out of balance, they can cause damage to fatty tissue, DNA and proteins in your body.
Maintaining a healthy thyroid
Selenium contributes to normal thyroid function.
This mighty mineral protects your thyroid against oxidative damage and helps produce essential thyroid hormones. A healthy thyroid gland regulates your metabolism and controls growth and development. Selenium deficiency has been linked to thyroid conditions where the immune system attacks the gland.
Helps keep your heart healthy
Selenium is necessary for normal cardiovascular function.
Selenium may help lower your risk of heart disease by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress in your body, two factors which have been linked to atherosclerosis – the build-up of plaque in arteries. Selenium-rich food is a great way to combat any inflammation.
