How can you keep your selenium stores replenished and which selenium sources to prefer?
Selenium is naturally found in Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and foods of animal origin such as liver, meat, fish and seafood. However, selenium in the diet may not always be enough. This is because the soil today is no longer rich enough in minerals, which means that the minerals may not reach our bodies through food in the quantities we need. Selenium from food may also not be sufficiently absorbed. It is therefore worth considering taking a good quality food supplement. Epigenetics’ liquid selenium is of high quality, of pure composition and has undergone thorough quality control. When taken regularly, Epigenetics liquid selenium can provide excellent support in maintaining proper selenium levels and preventing deficiency.
