SELENIUM: BENEFITS AND POTENTIAL RISKS

Selenium is an essential mineral important for different bodily processes. Apart from being an antioxidant, it is involved in DNA synthesis and the maintenance of healthy hair. Moreover, it plays a crucial role in the production of thyroid hormones and in fertility. Selenium cannot be produced by the body and thus must be taken up through food. Animal products are generally a good source of selenium, as the mineral is added to the food the animals are fed with. Selenium is also found in plant based sources like seeds, nuts and spinach. Unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold. The amount of selenium in foods is highly dependent on the soil of origin. Most of Europe has selenium-poor soils so vegans and vegetarians are at higher risk for a deficiency. People with digestive disorders, heavy smokers or alcoholics also have a higher risk. During pregnancy or breastfeeding a higher intake of selenium is also necessary. Typical symptoms of a selenium deficiency include muscle weakness, fatigue, hair loss or a weakened immune system.

PLANTBASED AND OPTIMAL DOSED

Our selenium is 100% natural and comes from Indian mustard seeds. In comparison to synthetic and

isolated forms, our capsules contain organically bound selenium, comprising a unique compound of

phytonutrients, which results in a higher bioavailability and bioactivity. The natural form can therefore be absorbed, stored and utilized in the body much more efficiently. But that’s not all. Our dosage is 100 mcg per capsule and hence not overdosed with 200 mcg or more. The reason is simple. Selenium is essential, but the body only requires small amouts (55 mcg is the daily European recommendation for healthy adults). An overdose can have detrimental side effects starting from garlic breath and metal taste in the mouth, to discolored and brittle nails, hair loss, muscle or joint pain, nausea, and vomiting, fatigue and depression. And last but not least, our selenium comes from mustard seeds is not derived from yeast: this make the product suitable for people with a yeast allergy or intolerance.</p
