The importance of Selenium, a trace element, has only been recognised for around 50 years but is now considered the most important trace element in your diet. Selenium is important for normal cell growth and immunity, whilst it also supports the action of a liver enzyme (P450) involved in detoxifying carcinogens in the body.
As a trace mineral we only need a small amount of Selenium to be effective. Unfortunately, in Europe there is a large amount of Selenium deficiency.
This is because the best dietary source of selenium is wheat, but crops grown on European soil tend to be low in the mineral. According to a study, “the level of intake in Europe and some parts of the world is not adequate.” This study is also worth looking at in relation to the benefits Selenium supplementation can provide.
The key to selenium supplementation is not taking too much. There are some high strength selenium supplements on the market but the most recent research shows that it is important not to take too much selenium. The health support benefits of selenium increase to a certain level and then plateaus for a while before actually dipping.
For people living in Northern and Western Europe it is recommended that both men and women take 100 – 200 mcg a day to raise levels to the ideal range.
