What is Selenium?

As its most basic level, selenium is a chalcogen element, or member of the oxygen family. There are two types of selenium: the relatively rare inorganic element found in trace amounts in pyrite and other rocks, and dietary, or organic. We will be discussing dietary selenium.


Selenium has numerous benefits, ranging from boosting immune system health to promoting prostate wellness. Selenium is an essential element for the human body to function at optimal levels. It can play a supporting role in reproductive health, metabolic health, cardiovascular health, and cognitive function. Too much of a good thing can be bad, however. Make sure that you are not taking more than the recommended daily dose in order to avoid any adverse reactions. It is best to consult a medical professional in order to determine what level is best for you and your health needs.
