Selenium has been shown in recent studies to cut aging persons’ risk of all cancers in half by as much as 50 percent. Consuming adequate amounts of selenium, on a daily basis, has been shown to reduce the risk of prostate and colorectal cancers as well as liver, lung, stomach, thyroid, esophagus, and bladder.
If you keep up on cancer prevention research, you may already know that the trace mineral selenium is a top anticancer superstar. Highlighted in recent research to reduce atypical cellular division involved in cancer formation, selenium achieves this by helping repair damaged DNA, recycling the “master antioxidant” glutathione and reducing cytotoxic cellular activity.
To take advantage of these benefits, it’s the form of selenium that matters most.
