Selenium

Description

Selenium is a trace element with antioxidant properties. It slows down the ageing process and some cellular metabolism disorders. This trace element participates in the immune defense system. Selenium is also involved in the functioning of the thyroid and in the synthesis of the male hormone, testosterone.

The recommended daily intake of selenium is around 55 micrograms for adults and 70 micrograms for pregnant or breastfeeding women. In principle, the diet provides a sufficient quantity of selenium, and a deficiency is therefore quite rare.

 

However, this may be the case for people with chronic intestinal diseases who have problems with digestive absorption. A selenium deficiency can lead to a slight decrease in male fertility and to disturbances in the immune system.

 

Brazil nuts are known to be rich in selenium (as well as vitamin E). Other foods rich in selenium are: offal (kidney, liver), poultry, fish and shellfish (tuna, herring, oysters, hake, salmon), cheeses, red peppers, sultanas, lentils, almonds and mushrooms.

  • Contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system;
  • Protection of cells against oxidative stress.
