Selenium is a vital trace element that plays an important role in many biological processes in the body. Here are some of the most important effects of selenium in the body:

Antioxidant effect : Selenium is an important component of selenoproteins such as glutathione peroxidase, which act as antioxidants and help protect cells from oxidative stress. They neutralize free radicals and help prevent cell damage, such as to hair and nails, that can be caused by oxidative stress. This protection against oxidative stress can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative diseases.

Immune system support : Selenium plays an important role in regulating immune function. It is involved in the activation and proliferation of immune cells and contributes to the formation of antibodies. Adequate selenium status is important for an effective immune response against infections and diseases.

Thyroid function : Selenium is important for the normal function of the thyroid gland. It is a component of selenoproteins, which are involved in the regulation of thyroid hormone metabolism. Selenium helps protect the thyroid from oxidative stress and may help prevent or alleviate autoimmune thyroid diseases such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' disease.

Promotes fertility : Selenium can support fertility in both men and women. In men, selenium is important for spermatogenesis and sperm quality. In women, selenium helps regulate the menstrual cycle and egg maturation.

Cancer protection : There is some evidence that adequate selenium intake may reduce the risk of certain cancers, particularly prostate, colon and lung cancer. Selenium may have cancer-preventing effects through its antioxidant properties as well as its ability to boost the immune system and reduce inflammation.

It is important to note that adequate selenium status is important for health, but excessive selenium intake can also have negative effects.
