Nutrapure Selenium & Zinc is a complex nutrient that provides numerous health benefits due to its high nutrient content. This is why selenium is recommended for various conditions.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral found in soil. It has been found to possess numerous health benefits such as boost the immune system, improve hair health, reduce inflammation in the body and even reduce the signs of premature ageing.
To help boost the immune system, selenium has been found to stimulate antibodies within the body, to help destroy foreign cells that could cause illness or infection.
Hair is made up mostly from protein. Selenium helps to utilize foods containing protein which helps feed hair helping promote hair growth. A dry scalp resulting in dandruff can also be alleviated with selenium as it kills the fungus that creates the dry scalp, causing dandruff.
Selenium also has amazing potential for anti-ageing and inflammatory conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). This is because Selenium not only ‘acts’ as an antioxidant but stimulates the creation of ‘more’ antioxidants. This process means that an abundance of antioxidants helps protect cells from free radical cell damage. Free Radicals wreak havoc on healthy cells, damaging them in the process. This can cause inflammatory responses in the body such as heart disease or RA, as well as premature ageing. The protective effect of selenium on cells is important as it helps maintain overall health.
Zinc is required by the body in small amounts every day to help maintain health and perform important functions, for instance, Zinc helps improve immunity and growth & repair of skin, nails and hair.
Studies have shown that Zinc can interfere with the process that causes mucus and bacteria to accumulate within the nose. It seems to have the ability to attach to receptors in nasal epithelial cells and block their effects to produce an antiviral effect.
Zinc itself exists within all bodily tissue and is required for healthy cell division. Just like vitamins, this element also acts as an antioxidant within the body, helping fight against free radical cell damage (which can result in premature ageing, illness or disease).
Although it’s a necessary element for health, Selenium can be toxic in large quantities. Nutrapure Selenium & Zinc provides the correct amount needed daily to help maintain overall wellness and health.
It can be found in food sources such as eggs, meat, fish, nuts, mushrooms and Brazil nuts but supplementation ensures you receive the correct dose required for health.

Selenium in the Press
Daily Mail, Health Article: Vitamin Pill Experts Say Really Is Worth Taking
The problem is we are not getting enough. The richest food sources of selenium are Brazil nuts, kidney, liver and fish, but the foods that make the largest contribution to our selenium intake — because we eat proportionately more of them — are cereals, bread, meat and poultry.
However, because levels of selenium in our soil are low, cattle aren’t absorbing as much when they graze, nor are crops or other fresh produce grown on it.
As a result, there is less selenium available from meat, grains and vegetables.
In fact, the average Briton consumes only half (30-35 mcg) of the daily amount recommended by the government (60 mcg for women, 75 mcg for men).
So, how do you know if your selenium levels are low and what should you do about it?
Professor Rayman says: ‘Unless you eat either white or oily fish or offal several times a week, the likelihood is that living in the UK means you aren’t getting enough.’
The best way to boost your intake is eating more fish and other selenium-rich food, but it may also be beneficial to take a supplement.
