Selenium High Dose Drops is highly concentrated sodium selenite, providing 100 μg of elemental selenium per drop.
Selenium (Se) is a trace mineral that functions as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and some forms of thioredoxin reductase, as well as multiple enzymes involved in thyroid hormone production.
At a fundamental level, selenium is essential to ‘redox’ – the balancing of oxidation and reduction (anti-oxidation), through its crucial role as a carrier of electrons. Oxygen is essential to the ‘burning’ of life, but like fire, it must be controlled by ‘quenching’ antioxidants, especially glutathione. Keeping glutathione in its reduced antioxidant state requires several enzymes, all of which are dependent on plentiful available selenium.
Areas of the world with soils (and thus food) lacking in selenium have widespread selenium deficiency, which can manifest as fatigue, lessened cognitive function, and thyroid dysfunction.
Why Supplement with Selenium High Dose Drops?

Selenium plays a vital role in a limited number of enzymes involved in reduction and oxidation, and is an antioxidant in itself and it is essential for one of the most important antioxidant enzymes in the body, glutathione.
Selenium is required for the production of active thyroid hormones.
Selenium's primary role is to help protect cells from oxidative damage, supporting their growth and survival.
