Selenium is present in virtually every cell in our body and is essential to proper functioning. It has been found to possess chemotherapeutic (anti-cancer) properties as well as being a powerful antioxidant (blocks free radicals). It also helps eliminate heavy metals, such as lead and mercury from the body. Selenium is important for your immune system by lowering oxidative stress, which reduces inflammation and enhances immunity.
