Selenium is an essential mineral. This mineral, as well as many more, is required by every living cell on this planet for proper function and structure. In the human body, selenium is found in trace amounts. Most people should have enough selenium in their bodies if they are healthy and have a well-balanced diet. However, those who choose alternative lifestyles such as smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol may have a lower level of selenium. It is possible to get selenium from your diet; the level varies depending on the soil where the food was grown. Keep in mind that selenium is destroyed when foods are refined or processed. For that reason, eating a variety of whole, unprocessed foods such as whole grains, sunflower seeds, garlic and Brazil nuts can be more beneficial.
