Selenium is also part of an antioxidant enzyme called glutathione peroxidase which protects cells against both environmental and dietary toxins.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend a target intake of Selenium of 70mcg per day and nutritionists recommend doses of 200mcg for a more therapeutic effect.
