Selenium helps target a weak immune system, infections, cancer cells, inflammatory problems, and abnormal thyroid function [1-7]. It also enhances heart health, brain health, and the body's natural antioxidant activity, among other benefits [1-12].
Selenium functions as an antioxidant and it also maximizes the activity of an enzyme called glutathione peroxidase, which acts as an antioxidant; in doing so, selenium supplementation strengthens immune system function [1-3]. The increased antioxidant activity enhances the body's ability to protect cells (e.g., red blood cells, breast, lung, esophageal, gastrointestinal, and prostate cells) from cancer-causing damage [1-12]. Selenium also improves thyroid function and heightens the body's release and use of thyroid hormones [4-7]. In addition, it heightens brain health (e.g. memory) and helps delay mental decline [9-10].
