Benefits of Selenium

Supporting healthy Thyroid and immune functions - particularly for New Zealanders

Selenium is an essential mineral required for numerous enzymatic reactions in the body. It possesses powerful antioxidant properties and is required for Thyroid hormone metabolism. Selenium can be obtained from the diet and is found in Brazil Nuts, fish, beef, chicken, turkey and eggs. New Zealand soils are naturally low in Selenium and so many Kiwi’s may not be getting enough of this essential mineral from their diets. Research shows that supplementation with Selenium may support healthy Thyroid Gland function, support healthy immune function and support healthy male hormone function.

If you feel that you may not be getting enough of this essential mineral from your diet then consider supplementation with this mineral.

Selenium is an important antioxidant mineral required for testosterone synthesis, normal sperm maturation and sperm motility. Studies have shown that Selenium supplementation may support healthy prostate gland function and healthy sperm production and function.

Soils in New Zealand and parts of Australia are deficient in the antioxidant mineral selenium. While the impact of this deficiency on human health is yet to be fully understood, it is important that individuals ensure they are getting enough of this essential mineral. Supplementation with selenium restores healthy selenium levels in the body.

What quality means to us

1.We start with the science.

The first marker of quality is effectiveness. That’s why we follow an evidence-based approach to nutrition. Unless there is scientific research supporting a nutrient it won’t be included in our recommendations. Research is also clearly categorised as mixed, emerging, strong, very strong or traditionally used remedies.

2.We know our place.

Usually the best way to get the best nutrients is in food. Real food. So we will never advocate vitamins or minerals as a replacement to a balanced diet. Where they have a key role is when, for whatever reason, your daily diet is not delivering what you need.

3.We're transparent.

Nutrition can be very confusing, with many voices & opinions. A quality outcome is about being able to make informed decisions. That’s why you can drill down on each nutrient to find out exactly why it has been recommended, its form, its bio-availability, dose & detailed ingredients.

4.We are multi-source.

You’ll find that our range changes. If the research indicates that the best form of nutrient comes via a particular extraction process or from a new part of the world then that is where we will seek to source those nutrients. As new research or technology emerges we constantly refine which nutrients sit at the heart of each personalised recommendation.
