Selenium is a mineral that your body needs in very small amounts, but that amount is critical to overall health. While too much of it can be toxic to your body, not enough is also unhealthy. Though it’s just a trace element that your body needs, it helps regulate the thyroid and plays important parts in hormonal health, ability to fight sickness(immunity), not to mention helping keep your liver and heart in good working order. Making sure you’re getting the right amount is important.
