Lamberts Selenium supplement each provide 200mcg of the trace mineral selenium which is a powerful antioxidant in the most utilised form called selenomethionine. Antioxidants such as selenium, are substances that help our bodies to destroy or quench harmful free radicals that are produced quite naturally in the human body and which, if allowed to proceed unchecked, can harm tissues and organs. Dietary intakes of selenium in the UK during the 70's were nearly twice the level we consume today with the result that selenium deficiency may be widespread. Moreover, official figures from MAFF show that the selenium intake for 80% of adults in the UK is now below the recommended daily intake.
This situation is due in part to the reduction in imports of selenium-rich, high protein wheat used for bread making from North America, coupled with the wide usage of selenium-antagonistic artificial fertilisers and acid rain exposure.
Falling dietary intakes are a real cause for concern. Selenium acts as an antioxidant, which are substances that help our bodies to destroy or quench harmful free radicals that are produced quite naturally in the human body and which, if allowed to proceed unchecked, can harm tissues and organs.
