|Selenium is primarily required for the formation of Glutathione Peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme, which protects body cells against oxidative damage by free radicals. Free radicals are harmful molecules produced in the body as a natural consequence of metabolism and environmental sources eg. stress, ageing, smoking, pollution.
Selenium also plays an important role in maintaining the healthy and normal function of vital body organs such as the heart, liver, pancreas and thyroid glands.
Individuals on a poor diet of processed foods, the elderly, pregnant and breast-feeding women and smokers may have an increased need of Selenium.
