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!

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 the drug, we drink the whole family. The child is 2.8 years old; he is doing a dose of 10 drops. There are no adverse and allergic reactions. We drink morning selenium evening zinc, or vice versa. Satisfied
Suffering from hyperthyroidism I tend to heav swelling, as Selinium 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. Selinium is necessary for ur 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.
Feel better. More energy.
This concentrated selenium recommended by the Medical Medium I find easy to take, it has no taste and is effective.
Eidon products are so terrific and I know they are working!
No fillers, just what you need and easy to take.
I have been trying to increase my selenium, but I have so many pills to swallow. Other mineral products are so bitter, they are very difficult to get in larger quantities other than just trace amounts. With Eidon Ionic Minerals, I can get my minerals without gagging!
After being told that the results of my CA125 test, along with 3 ultrasounds showing numerous growths on my ovaries and uterus (the number and location of the growths/tumors is a story in and of itself), my OB/GYN set me up with an Oncologist, who then ran all of their own tests. A few thousand dollars worth of testing (what my insurance company did to me is yet another story) it was determined that I NEEDED -- MUST HAVE -- a complete hysterectomy. So all doctors involved coordinated their schedules and the surgery date was set. It was during the pre-op BS meeting with the Oncologist that I realized that I really did not like the doc who was going to be doing the robotic surgery. More so, I did not trust him. I got into an argument with him during pre-op and ended up walking out of his office, cancelling my surgery, and calling Rick (at Eidon) to discuss the studies done on the ability of Selenium to reduce and/or destroy tumors. Here is the bottom line on the Selenium: A couple of weeks ago I went back to my doc for a check-up. First off, he was surprised to see me looking so well. He expected to see me VERY sick by now. Again I went through the ultrasounds, and the CA125 cancer marker tests. RESULTS: The CA125 came in -better than normal- and the ultrasounds show ALL BUT 3 or 4 of the tumors are gone. He said that the remaining are so small that they are not going to worry about it. I replied, "So, basically, I saved myself from being gutted like a fish, and about 40,000. for the surgery." He answered, "Yes...you could say that. BUT, at the time, the surgery was the best option." No, the Selenium was the best option, only he couldn't tell me about it because it's not "approved" by the FDA or the AMA...or anyone else in mainstream medicine. This story is getting way too long for this web page, so I will end it here by saying -- THANK YOU, Rick... for your health suggestions; for making the best minerals on the planet; and most of all, for your support during that whole ordeal with the Oncologist from hell! Can I say that the Selenium (along with the "green diet" I put myself on) "cured" me? Yes I can...and I am! The tests don't lie. Terri San Diego, CA
