The necessity of Selenium to the human diet was not firmly established until 1989 when the National Research Council established a recommended daily allowance (RDA) for it. Selenium is a trace mineral (meaning the body uses it in small amounts) that works as an antioxidant particularly when combined with Vitamin E.

We are able to get selenium from the foods we eat. However, the amount of selenium contained in foods depends on widely varied soil content, and much of the selenium is lost during processing. Selenium is important to the production of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase and much of selenium’s benefit is related to this process. Glutathione peroxidase aids in detoxification of the body. The potential benefits of selenium are still being researched but a number of possible applications are already known. Several studies suggest selenium is needed for proper immune function. Combined with other minerals selenium helps build up white blood cells helping fight infection and illness and to strengthen immune system operation.

Selenium also appears to positively impact prostate health and thyroid function.
In 1996, with the publication in the Journal of the American Medical Association of the results a trial conducted by Dr. Clark at the University of Southern Arizona, Selenomax® gained prominence and acceptance as the premium brand of selenium supplementation.

Today Selenomax® is widely used as the essential ingredient in many premium brands of selenium supplements marketed in the U.S. This product is a convenient supplemental source of stable, well-absorbed, organic selenium. Selenomax is the premium selenium supplement on the market.
