Selenium is an antioxidant trace element . It is, in fact, part of the structure of several antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidases . These enzymes help neutralize excess free radicals present in the body. In addition, selenium participates in the regeneration of vitamins which are themselves antioxidants (vitamins C and E). Therefore, a good supply of selenium helps protect cells against oxidative stress.

Selenium contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.

On the other hand, selenium contributes to the protection of DNA, proteins and lipids from oxidative damage.

To summarize, whenever a pathology is likely to lead to increased production of free radicals causing cell damage and an increase in pro-inflammatory mediators, selenium is likely to play a protective role .

We use selenium in B-Cell to help protect cells against oxidative stress.
