087: How to Manage Your Selenium Status

Chris Masterjohn Lite Episode 87


Selenium makes you resilient to all kinds of stress, including the physical attacks of infections and toxins. It keeps your nails healthy, prevents the wear and tear on your tissues as you age, keeps your body from launching too much inflammation and releasing too much histamine, and appears to protect against several cancers.

On the other hand, too much worsens the risk of diabetes and causes some of the same problems that “just enough” protects against.

Because the soils vary so much in their selenium content, it’s hard to judge what you’re getting just from the foods you eat, and selenium is one mineral I think everyone should test at least once.

Tune in for everything you need to know about how to manage your selenium status!
