What is Selenium Used For, Benefits, and Deficiency

by Juan G 28 Feb 2022

What is Selenium Used For

What is Selenium Used For? It's a mineral that your body needs but cannot naturally make, classifying this an essential nutrient you must consume regularly. This has made these supplements increasingly common as its importance and benefits gain more awareness.


The body uses this mineral for a handful of vital processes including healthy metabolism and thyroid function. It is also a great antioxidant with a host of many benefits

Most of the good effects come from it's powerful antioxidant properties. It works on its own and with enzymes to help prevent cell damage caused by free radicals and oxidation, which are caused by normal bodily functions as well as poor lifestyle choices.

This selenium function also helps reduce the chance of chronic disease caused by oxidative stress and inflammation. It even plays a role in DNA repair, which has caused cancer related studies to be performed.


Although your body only needs selenium in small amounts, many people do not get enough due to poor or alternative diets. Some of these people have turned to the supplement due to its importance in healthy bodily functions.

You can expect some bad side effects without selenium in your daily diet. You'll lose the benefits of having it which would already be bad enough without more side effects.

But studies have shown that when you're lacking correct amounts then you could have depressive moods, anxiety, and confusion.

These are pretty arbitrary side effect in that they are hard to quantify, however they are deadly serious nonetheless. While this deficiency is not the most common, but it should be looked at before seeking harsher treatment.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
