Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to good health required in small amounts. It is also one of the crucial ingredients missing from the Western diet since the depletion is at soil level as is Boron, Potassium, Zinc and Magnesium. Plant foods are the major dietary sources of selenium in most countries throughout the world. Whole plants organically grown in good African soil should be the basis for our daily nutritional needs be it in our food intake and or as part our supplementation.
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 and play a role in the immune system.
Brazil nuts is a good source of Selenium as is the whole plant supplementation found from the Imsyser Immune System Stabiliser Tablets. For more on this natural Supplement visit our website www.imsyser.co.za.
