What is Selenium?
Selenium is an essential trace mineral that supports a healthy body in many ways. It’s critical for the thyroid gland, supports the immune system, is essential for metabolic pathways, and soothes redness and swelling in the body. It’s even important for reproductive health, DNA production, and eyesight.
As an antioxidant, it helps fight free radicals and might even be called a super antioxidant because it supports other antioxidants.
One of its most valuable roles is supporting the production of glutathione peroxidase, a critical antioxidant enzyme that protects the thyroid and even helps recycle vitamin E and vitamin C into active scavengers of free radicals.
Global Healing Center’s high-potency selenium capsules are made from 100% certified organic mustard seeds and each serving delivers 200 mcg of food-derived, vegan-friendly selenium for a highly bioavailable source your body can use.
The Top 5 Reasons You Need Selenium
1. Powerful Antioxidant
Selenium is an antioxidant that defends against the free radicals that damage cells and lead to premature aging. Selenium’s antioxidant status also supports the immune system by helping to create important antibodies.
2. Thyroid Support
Like iodine, selenium is important for normal thyroid function. It’s necessary for the production of thyroid hormones; a selenium deficiency can negatively affect hormone balance and thyroid function. Selenium’s antioxidant action also helps protect the thyroid from free radicals.
3. Cardiovascular Health
Normal cardiovascular health requires adequate selenium. Selenium can benefit heart health by soothing oxidative stress and supporting normal circulation.
4. Food-Sourced Formula
Nearly every other selenium supplement on the market is produced with synthetic selenium. Global Healing Center’s selenium extract is different. It’s a whole food form of selenium extracted from certified organic mustard seeds. Food sources allow for faster and easier absorption. Each high-potency capsule delivers 200 mcg of highly bioavailable, organically sourced selenium.
5. Unparalleled Quality
Global Healing Center’s readily absorbable selenium formula is produced in the USA at a state of the art manufacturing facility equipped with all modern equipment that adheres to cGMP guidelines and has achieved ISO 22000 certification -- the highest in food safety.
