RADIO HEALTH PEARL #447 …brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.
According to the National Academy of Sciences, there is ongoing research on the trace-mineral SELENIUM.
One of those studies shows that SELENIUM has insulin-mimicking properties, which is good news for those struggling with sugar cravings, hypoglycemia and diabetes.
SELENIUM also reduces the oxidative stress associated with diabetes, and therefore has a positive influence in fighting symptoms of Neuropathy, Cataracts and Retinopathy.
And SELENIUM has shown to be essential for people suffering from a low functioning, or hypo-, thyroid gland.
While taking prescription medication, or supplements such as Iodine and Tyrosine, it would be good to add at least an extra 400 mcg to your daily regiment.
Then more research explains that SELENIUM is an antioxidant; and as an antioxidant it helps to regenerate Vitamin C and E so they can continue to fight free radicals.
SELENIUM surely packs-a-punch in improving our health. It definitely should NOT be ignored. There are different choices and companies available at …the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center, on North 19th Avenue.
