Selenium is a nutrient essential to human health. And as an antioxidant, it helps to fight multiple types of illness.
An essential mineral found in soil, Selenium occurs naturally in certain foods (such as whole grains, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, seafood and BSI Compound M colloidal minerals). Selenium is not produced in the body, but it is essential in proper thyroid and immune system function.
Alternative medicine has greatly benefitted from Selenium in treatment of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid), in treatment of high cholesterol, and lymphedema. Selenium can reduce hair loss, abdominal pain, and loss of appetite.
Studies have reported that people with higher levels of selenium have lower risk of cancer, inhibits the growth of cancer cells, including cancer of the prostate, stomach, lung, breast, and skin.
Selenium is a particularly important mineral because it supports the function of several systems. These include the endocrine, immune, and cardiovascular systems. The thyroid, part of the endocrine system, is the organ with the highest concentration of selenium per weight of organ tissue.
Highly beneficial for under-active thyroid, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), macular degeneration, hay fever, infertility, cataracts, gray hair, abnormal pap smears, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), mood disorders, arsenic poisoning, and preventing miscarriage. Also diseases of the heart and blood vessels, including stroke and “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis).
Selenium is greatly beneficial in preventing serious complications from critical illnesses such as head injury and in burns, in prevention of bird flu, treating HIV/AIDS, and reducing side effects from cancer therapies.
Selenium is vital for many processes, such as: Thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, reproduction, protection from infection, immune system function, protection from free radicals, cognitive functioning, and cancer / major disease prevention.
Selenium deficiency can produce a wide range of symptoms. The most common are: infertility in men and women, muscle weakness, fatigue, mental fog, hair loss, weakened immune system, Keshan heart disease, Kashin-Beck arthritis.
Although selenium deficiency is rare, adequate supplementation is especially important for people who have: thyroid diseases like Graves or thyroid nodules, cancer, weakened immune function, HIV, Crohn’s disease, or undergoing dialysis.
Contraindications: Selenium Injection should only be given diluted by addition to IV infusion, to avoid the potential for problems associated with phlebitis, chronic kidney disease (or if on dialysis), underactive thyroid, or skin cancer.
