Name Variation: Anti inflammatory properties of Selenium


(Proper Name/Spelling: Selenium)


DESCRIPTION: Selenium is a powerful antioxidant molecule, and has the added benefit of increasing the activity of glutathione peroxidase. Selenium is a cofactor of glutathione which contains four atoms of selenium per molecule. For people with retroviruses (such as HIV and hepatitis C), selenium may play an unexpected role in addition to the above effects. Retroviruses contain a selenium dependent enzyme that monitors the selenium status of the host, and when selenium levels fall, these viruses begin replicating at an increased rate. There is a great deal of evidence indicating that selenium supplementation at high levels reduces the incidence of cancer in animals. More than two-thirds of over 100 published studies in 20 different animal models of spontaneous, viral, and chemically induced cancers found that selenium supplementation significantly reduced tumor incidence.
