Clinicians Selenium drops are a highly absorbable form of elemental selenium, in an easy to use and cost effective dose format. The essential trace mineral selenium functions primarily as a component on the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which works with Vitamin E in preventing free radical damage to cell membranes. NZ soils are selenium deficient. Low levels are linked to a higher risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory diseases and other conditions associated with free radical damage, including premature aging and cataract formation. 3 drops provides 150mcg of selenium. 30ml
Selenium is an essential mineral found in minute amounts in the body. It closely resembles sulphur in its physical properties. Selenium is a natural antioxidant and is one of the essential body substances that can be used in a preventive manner for many diseases including cancer, stroke, arteriosclerosis, cirrhosis, arthritis and emphysema. Pancreatic function depends on Selenium. Selenium is deficient in New Zealand soils. Low levels of selenium are found in some cases of cancer, thyroid dysfunction, and may worsen a iodine deficiency state. This may reflect long term impairment of cell protection capacity. Low levels of selenium have been observed to increase with supplementation. This is reflective in hair samples.
Selenium deficiency is more common where soils are low in selenium and also in infants fed cows milk instead of breast milk. While no clearly defined deficiency syndrome has been accepted, given selenium's many important functions and uses, its deficiency may generate increased risk of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, strokes, myocardial infarction (heart attack) and kidney disease. Other problems possibly related with deficiencies include: eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, pancreatitis, cataracts, cervical dysplasia and alcoholism. There is a lot of information that talks about its vital role with Viruses, such as HIV and HSI II Selenium is necessary for the production of prostaglandins, substances that affect blood pressure.
