Selenium Info

Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is deficient in many New Zealand and Australian farm soils, so the food we grow can lack this necessary element. Although found in every cell of our body, selenium is only needed in small amounts. It is a powerful antioxidant preventing damage to intracellular structures, particularly in combination with vitamin E. It is important for optimising immune and thyroid function and supports the liver, counteracting the toxic effect of heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium and arsenic. There is evidence that selenium may help to detoxify some metals and other toxins, and has very effective anti-cancer properties.

Selenium Benefits

Selenium may slow signs of aging due to the oxidative processes and help maintain tissue elasticity and resilience. Adequate intake of this essential mineral may even help to protect against serious disease.

Selenium is an essential nutrient in healthy heart function and can help prevent plaquing. It also has an important role in maintaining a healthy sperm count in males. Foetal development, nerve function, visual health, thyroid hormone conversion and coenzyme Q10 production all depend on selenium. Maintaining adequate levels may reduce susceptibility to infections and enhance your immune response.

Selenium Side Effects

Taking high doses over a long period can cause toxicity and increased risk of diabetes.

  • Wow wow wow, this product really really works

    I puurchased this product initially through a well known Health product retail chain. The cost $89. I was initially very hesitant to spend this amount but I had made a New Year's resolution to myself to find a 'natural cure' to my broken sleep problem that I had endured for many years and that in turn woke my wife with my numerous visits to the loo every night. What a difference I experienced when I slept right through the night and have continued to do so. Then I came across your company and the fabulous price I can now buy it direct for. Thank you Go Healthy NZ and thank you Healthpost for the quality sleep I am now getting all night long.
