Selenium

Selenium

Selenium is an essential trace element, which significantly contributes to the formation of over 20 important proteins. These proteins protect the body against oxidative processes which can damage cells and DNA, and are also responsible for cell differentiation and cell proliferation. In addition to this, they are important for the metabolism of the thyroid gland. A balanced supply of selenium seems to contribute to a healthy functioning immune system. Generally German soil contains relatively little selenium, particularly in south Germany. In different countries, the intake of selenium can be very different depending on the composition of the soil. Herring and tuna in particular contain a great deal of selenium.
