Let’s talk Selenium



Brazil nuts are something I recently added into my diet. I eat two every morning. It is one of the most reliable sources of selenium.

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant and is one of the essential minerals for our health and immunity.

A powerful mineral that is essential for the proper functioning of your body. It plays a critical role in metabolism and thyroid function and helps protect your body from damage caused by oxidative stress.

Selenium protects our thyroid and immune system, and supplementing with it (at a therapeutic dosage) has been found to reduce thyroid antibodies, reduce thyroid symptoms, and improve overall well-being.

Sources of Selenium;
•Oysters – 238% of the RDA in 85g
•Brazil nuts – 174% of the RDA in one nut alone
•Halibut – 171% of the RDA in 160g
•Eggs – 56% of the RDA in 100g
•Sardines – 46% of the RDA in 50g
•Sunflower seeds – 27% of the RDA
•Chicken breast – 12% of the RDA

Deficiency Symptoms may look like:
✔ Hair loss

So add a few of these powerful little guys into your diet each day.
