Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Contains Selenium (Se)

Selenium makes up part of a molecule in the body that is thought to protect blood cells from certain damaging chemicals. In effect, selenium acts as an antioxidant and has properties which are similar to vitamin E.(1) Although the two compounds may act similarly in terms of function they also have synergistic properties: When combined with vitamin E, selenium enhances the body’s production of antibodies. Selenium deficiency has been linked to leukemia and arthritis.(2)

Selenium is also found in more than two dozen selenoproteins which aid in many biological functions such as reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism and DNA synthesis. As mentioned above, selenium is an antioxidant.(3) Moreover, selenium is an especially important element for men’s nutrition as it may provide protection against prostate cancer.(4)
