Selenium is a trace mineral found in the soil and naturally appears in water and some food. People only need a very small amount of selenium but it plays a key role in metabolism function. It has powerful antioxidant activity as a component of antioxidant enzymes, particularly glutathione reductase, makes it key for repairing tissues throughout the body.
Supports immune function.
Defends against oxidative stress.
Necessary for Liver detoxification.
Selectively toxic to leukemia cells.
Inhibits virally induced breast cancer.
Helps repair DNA damage from carcinogens.
Helps prevent tumours from developing and contributes to the death of precancerous and cancerous cells.

Consuming foods with selenium such as Brazil nuts, eggs, liver, tuna, cod and sunflower seeds and/or taking supplements can have positive antiviral effects, support fertility and reproduction, may even reduce the risk of cancer, autoimmune and thyroid diseases. 6 Brazil nuts will supplement the selenium source you need for the entire day. I personally consume food grade bentonite clay as it also contains other essential minerals from earth.
