Selenium is an essential trace element that is highly active in electron exchange reactions. Antioxidant enzymes specialize in electron exchange reactions that help protect the cells and tissues from free radical and other oxidative electron stealers. Selenium is an essential component of glutathione peroxidase, being located at the active site of this major antioxidant enzyme. Some chemically sensitive individuals may tolerate selenium better as sodium selenite than as selenomethionine. For selenium, the dosage range between benefit and potential toxicity is small, and only microgram (mcg) amounts are normally required on a daily basis (one microgram = one millionth of a gram). The total daily intake of selenium from nutritional supplements should be carefully monitored and we suggest that it not exceed 400 micrograms per day. Health Functions:
