Selenium is an essential trace mineral whose importance to human health is well-established. As a constituent of selenoprotein, selenium has structural and enzymatic roles, it is best known as an antioxidant, works as a catalyst for the production of thyroid hormone, needed for optimal immune response, fertility, cardiovascular health, and cognitive health.
Zenith Nutrition Selenium is a vegetarian supplement which is manufactured in a GMP-certified unit and has gone through stringent testing for evaluation on purity and potency.

An elemental low Se status leads to an imbalance of antioxidant with an accretion of reactive oxygen species. Selenium is a potent antioxidant which helps fight damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals are the natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may damage cell membranes and DNA and may contribute to aging and health conditions, including heart disease and neurodegeneration.
MAY SUPPORT SKIN HEALTH
Selenium neutralizes free radicals, fights inflammatory cytokines which eventually cause skin damage, acne and wrinkles. Inflammtion caused by UV light, stress and other factors is known to age skin, contributing to the breakdown of collagen. Selenium functions similar to vitamin E when it comes to slowing the signs of aging. Recent studies emphasize the importance of selenium in reducing UV-reduced cell damage, skin inflammation and pigmentation. .
PROMOTES LIVER HEALTH
Selenium functions as a great detoxifier because it is required for the production and action of glutathione peroxidase in the liver. Glutathione peroxidase is an antioxidant enzyme necessary for detoxification and protection of the liver against free radical damage.
BOOSTS IMMUNE RESPONSE
The essential nutrient affects various aspects of human health, including optimal immune response. Adequate selenium boosts the functioning of T cells, which are important components of the human immune system. Selenium is critical for the optimum function of neutrophils, which are most abundant type of white blood cells. Neutrophils ingest ivading microbes and destroy them using an intricate system that is in part regulated by selenium and selenoproteins. Selenium supplementation may boost immune system function in aging individuals and confer protection against infection.
SUPPORTS HEART HEALTH
Oxidative stress plays a pivotal role in the development of coronary heart disease. Reduced serum levels of selenium may result in inadequate prevention of LDL oxidation. Selenium protects health muscles from damage caused by free radicals, it also reduces concentration of C-reactive proteins, thereby possibly reduces inflammation. Selenoproteins have been identified in the regulation of glutathione peroxidases which help to neutralize reactive oxygen and nitrogen species.
ESSENTIAL FOR NORMAL BRAIN FUNCTION
Excessive oxidative exposure has been associated with increased risk of neurodegenerative changes. Studies have shown that people with neurodegenerative disorder have lower levels of selenium in their blood. Selenoproteins help fight oxidative stress, protect brain cells over time and help prevent age-related cognitive decline.
HELPS IMPROVE FERTILITY
The trace element selenium is strongly linked to fertility. Selenium contributes to the morphology of sperm as well as its motility which are the key factors in normal conception. Studies have found that the mineral plays a crucial role in the early stages of conception, specially, in the development of healthy ovarian follicles which are responsible for the production of eggs in women. Selenium can protect the sperm from oxidative damage in men
and increase the production of progesterone in women.
MAY IMPROVE THYROID HEALTH: The thyroid gland is characterized by a high concentration of selenium. Selenium is used there as a building block of a specific protein called selenoprotein which is essential for converting an inactive T4 into its active T3. Selenoproteins have an antioxidant activity, which contributes to the antioxidant defense in the thyroid by removing free radicals generated. The essential mineral helps to promote healthy thyroid metabolism.
PROMOTES HEART HEALTH: The increased production of reactive oxygen species can cause oxidation of low-density lipoprotein, vascular inflammation which have been reported to be associated with inducing heart risk. Optimum levels of selenium in the body would reduce the production of oxidized LDL and therefore would reduce the incidence of heart disease. This can be attributed to the mineral’s potent antioxidant activity.
BENEFITS BRAIN HEALTH: The brain is vulnerable to damage caused by oxidative stress which can lead to neurodegenerative changes. Selenium plays a significant role in brain health. The selenoproteins help fight oxidative stress, protect the brain cells over time and help prevent age-related cognitive decline. Selenium plays a role in the synthesis of glutathione peroxidases, which are important antioxidant enzymes present in brain tissues.
