Selenium is essential to thyroid hormone metabolism, reproduction, DNA synthesis, and it protects you from infection and damage resulting from oxidative stress. Selenium is a mineral that's naturally found in some of the foods we eat. It's also added to foods to fortify them and can be taken as a dietary supplement. Your body doesn't make selenium, so the only way you can get it is through food and/or supplements.
The thyroid is the organ that has the highest concentration of selenium in the body, and this mineral plays a key role in your thyroid gland’s ability to produce thyroid hormone. Having an optimal amount of selenium in your diet is vital not just for preventing hypothyroid disease, but for your overall health.
Selenium is important for the formation of antibodies, the binding of toxic metals like mercury, amino acid metabolism, and the promotion of normal body growth and fertility. It is also necessary for the production of prostaglandins – substances that affect blood pressure, and works closely with vitamin E to support cardiovascular health by preventing the oxidation of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and slowing the aging and hardening of the arteries.
