Selenium - recommended dosage and benefits of selenium 

"Do you get enough Selenium?

Selenium is a mineral and is found in most Multi-vitamins.  However, it is not always in a high enough dose to have major benefits.

A good dose to take daily is 200mcg (micrograms) each day. 

Selenium is helpful for proper thyroid function.  It also helps make glutathione in the liver which is a very important and powerful anti-oxidant.  Selenium is also good for the immune system and decreases risk of developing diabetes.

Brazil nuts are a good natural source of selenium.  About 5 Brazil nuts a day will give you a good daily dose."
