Selenium is an essential cell protector – an important element of antioxidant protection. Selenium deficiency leads to a decrease in immunity and thyroid performance, premature aging, problems in the cardiovascular system, endocrine, oncological diseases. Selenium helps one of the most important antioxidant enzymes in the body – glutathione peroxidase – an enzyme that disarms free radicals that many other antioxidants cannot handle. In the body, deprived of this protective trace element, heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, mercury, accumulate; the toxicity of tobacco smoke and the unfavorable urban environment saturated with automobile exhaust gases increases. Selenium removes heavy toxins from the body, such as aluminum and mercury.
Selenium protects against liver damage affected by toxins or infections, improves the condition of seborrhea and other skin diseases.
According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, patients taking prophylactic microdoses of selenium had a 49% reduction in mortality from the most common cancers (lung, prostate, colon and rectum).
Selenium is one of the important ingredients in Aqua Sors’ Livor Klens product (90% of the daily dose in 2 capsules), in combination with vitamin C and vitamin E.
