Selenium is an antioxidant mineral. It works together with antioxidant enzymes to fight free radicals. Selenium activates the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which recycles glutathione. Selenium improves white blood cell proliferation, and a selenium deficiency will result in a depressed immune system. Selenium is reported to mimic the blood sugar regulatory functions of insulin in laboratory studies and to play a role in reducing the oxidative stress associated with diabetes.
Selenium may also protect against cancers and cardiovascular disease by increasing HDL cholesterol levels.
