by Jowynna Yeo - 26th Oct 2019
Have you heard of Selenium? (No, not Selena...)
Selenium is a trace mineral found mainly in soil and plays an important role in human health and disease. In fact, selenium is part of the antioxidant system in our body.
To include selenium in your diet, get it from food sources such as fish, meat (especially organ meats) eggs, milk and shellfish. These are good sources of selenium.
Fun fact: The higher the protein content, the more selenium it contains.
So, don't forget to eat your proteins :)
