Selenium belongs to the micronutrients and is an essential trace element.

In times like these, where the strengthening of our immune system plays an important role, selenium cannot be missing. Its strong antioxidant effect is a great asset in detoxification and significantly strengthens our immune system. It is a component of various enzymes and therefore an important player in various metabolic processes. Selenium is gaining importance in bone, skin and thyroid diseases. It can also play a role in the unfulfilled desire to have children.

Caution and information

The soils in our latitude are rather low in selenium, which is why selenium is less present in food.

In addition, special care must be taken with selenium supplements if amalgam fillings are present in the teeth. These two together become insoluble and the toxic substances can be deposited in the brain.

Bone metabolism | in bone metabolism disorders such as arthrosis or osteoporosis...

Skin | for skin diseases such as psoriasis, neorodermatitis...

Thyroid | Selenium is particularly important for an intact functioning thyroid gland. More precisely, T3 can only be activated from its storage form T4 if sufficient selenium is present.

Menopause | in certain cases, the supply of selenium is recommended during menopause.
