Antioxidant protection and thyroid health

The health benefits of selenium
Antioxidant function, immune booster and thyroid support. Selenium is a vital element that contributes to the normal functioning of the thyroid gland and the immune system. In addition, selenium acts as an antioxidant and immune booster, which means it protects the body’s cells. In Sweden, the soil is low in selenium and therefore vegetables grown in Sweden have low levels. The foods that contain the most selenium are fish, offal, nuts/seeds, milk, cheese and eggs.
The importance of selenium as a supplement
Given the role of selenium in cancer prevention, immune system function and other health benefits, it may be a good idea to ensure adequate intake through supplementation. Selenium is particularly important as an antioxidant and immune booster.
Antioxidant function
Selenium acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting the body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals. This can help prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
Reproduction
Selenium plays a role in the reproductive system and may be important for both male and female fertility.
