Selenium

Selenium

Selenium is a trace element found widely in foods such as brazil nuts, bread, fish, meat and eggs.

If you eat meat, fish or nuts, you should be able to get all the selenium you need from your daily diet. This is:

0.075 mg a day for men
0.06 mg a day for women

Selenium plays an important role in the function of the immune system, in thyroid hormone metabolism and in reproduction. It is also part of the body's antioxidant defence system, preventing damage to cells and tissues.

Too much selenium causes selenosis, a condition that in its mildest form can lead to loss of hair, skin and nails.

You should be able to get all the selenium you need by eating a varied and balanced diet that includes meat, fish or nuts. If you decide to take selenium supplements it is important not to take too much because this could be harmful.

Taking 0.35 mg or less a day of selenium supplements is unlikely to cause any harm.
