Selenium, while little known by the public, is a well-studied element. It is involved as a catalyst in several important enzymes. The most well-known function is in the liver where selenium catalyzes or activates the glutathione peroxidase enzyme. This enzyme plays its most significant role in the liver as it cleanses the blood. Without it, the liver could not do its job properly leaving our system full of toxins.
Selenium plays an important role in the thyroid where, along with Iodine, it catalyzes the T4 and T3 enzymes which are critical for energy production. Along with the thyroid, Selenium is also found in sizable amounts in healthy breast and prostate tissues.
Selenium is not widespread in the earth’s soils. Consequently, the ability to obtain Selenium in our foods on a regular basis is difficult at best. Supplementation is the best way to insure a steady supply and a steady supply is essential for optimal health.
Supplementing with Selenium helps to support a healthy immune system, thyroid and liver function, and breast and prostate tissues.
Fatigue, hair loss, brain fog, difficulty concentrating, low immune response.
Food High in Selenium:
Seaweeds, shellfish and ocean fish. Nuts, legumes and vegetables grown in selenium replete soils, which is very difficult to verify.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

Very high quality selenium. Suitable for both children and adults! Very good with magnesium!
In our difficult time for residents of megacities, Selenium is a must have (of course, on the recommendation of your doctor). Cool form of admission without unnecessary impurities. You add it to the water and drink it, the taste of the water does not change, which is an additional bonus.
This selenium product is completely odorless and tasteless which is much better than other manufacturers I have taken. There are also no unnecessary impurities and has a convenient dropper.
Great form to give to a child. I add to tea, does not even notice.
Excellent thyroid support. 30 drops after dinner, for a couple of months.
Best in the market
I loved the idea of adding Selenium to my water. Also, it meant less additives and capsules, etc. I was so excited about using this that I then ordered the respective liquid Selenium from Trace Minerals. Surprisingly, I was not happy with it. I like Eidons supplement better.
Satisfied with this supplement. The whole family takes it. Our child is almost 3 years old; he is doing a dose of 10 drops. There are no adverse and allergic reactions. We drink in the morning selenium, evening zinc, or vice versa. Satisfied.
Suffering from hyperthyroidism I tend to have swelling, as Selenium helps not only the thyroid it also helps regulating the heart. Even by temperatures of 32C (94F) I have very little problems. Most important to me is, that this product is pure without fillers, since the body cannot handle those to well. Selenium is necessary for your well being, the body cannot produce it and food does no longer provide the necessary quantities, it is important to find a good source. This particular product has helped over the past few years very well.
