Understanding the Chemistry of the Oxygen Element First identified in the 17th century, oxygen is a gaseous, non-metallic element that makes life possible. The chemist and physician John Mayow proved that oxygen was critical to lifeforms, and could be removed by a naked flame and respiration. A key indication of oxygen’s supreme importance was realized when researchers demonstrated that mice could survive longer in air heated by mercury oxide rather than air heated by using a flame [which consumes oxygen]. They were able to prove that the depletion of “eminently breathable air,” later termed oxygen, directly resulted […]

Why Thyroid Health Is Completely Dependent on Selenium The thyroid is essential to some of the body’s most critical processes, including the development of the nervous and skeletal systems.[1] For the thyroid to function normally, it must receive the right nutrition, and that means getting enough selenium. Selenium is an essential mineral[2] and being deficient can lead to serious health problems such as Keshan disease[3], myxoedematous cretinism[4], Graves’ disease[5], and even thyroid destruction.[6]

What Is Selenium? Understanding an Essential Mineral Selenium is an essential mineral that functions as an amino acid and also provides antioxidant activity in the body.[1][2] Selenium toxicity is a rare condition that results from ingesting great quantities of the element.[3] Selenium deficiency is a more common malady. Selenium is necessary for human health because certain enzymes, called selenoproteins, require selenium to function properly.[4] These enzymes help the body carry out some of its most basic physiological functions.
