Selenium





SELENIUM

Selenium is a part of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which metabolizes hydroperoxides formed from polyunsaturated fatty acids Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Free radicals are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function, play a role in the immune system and critical for control of the numerous chemical reactions involved in brain and body functions.

Selenium helps to boost the immune system and fight off infection, providing a general increase in the body's defense against dangerous bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells.

Benefits of Selenium:

Some also use the for the purpose of whitening (through its antioxidant effect) although this does not come under the scope of its normal use.
