Immunity has been confirmed as the main health concerns sought by consumers. So consumers are looking for solutions to strengthen their immune system, such as minerals, an alternative to the vitamins.
Selenium is a good option to meet the immunity needs of consumers. It is found in a wide variety of foods including grains, vegetables, seafood, meat, dairy products, and nuts.
Selenium is an essential micronutrient, existing in 2 forms: inorganic (selenate, selenide and selenite) and organic (selenomethionine and selenocysteine). The main difference between these two forms is that organic selenium is linked to an amino acid thus forming selenoproteins presenting an increased bioavailability as compared to inorganic forms.
Selenium, a mineral that is on trend thanks to its benefits for human health
Selenium plays a crucial role in a wide variety of physiological processes in the human body such as supporting the cells against oxidative stress and also supporting the immune system. Normal metabolism produces oxidants in our body’s cells. Selenium, as an actor against oxidative stress, helps to neutralize these oxidants components and restores a certain balance. Selenium contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
