SELENIUM FORTE Syxyl against free radicals
What are free radicals?
Free radicals (unbound oxygen atoms) are very fast reacting, tiny particles that arise in the most varied of functional processes in the body and whose formation can also be promoted externally by environmental toxins (smoking, alcohol) and radiation exposure (e.g. UV rays). As always, nature offers a counterbalance to keep a balance. Antioxidants are therefore also called radical scavengers. These are groups of substances that can prevent damage to the organism from free radicals, especially to the cells.
The role of selenium in the body, against free radicals
Selenium is an essential trace element for humans. However, in Europe the soils and therefore most plant foods are rather poor in selenium. Selenium is contained in many enzymes in the form of selenoproteins and is therefore required for a large number of reactions in the body. As a component of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, selenium can help protect cells from oxidative stress. Other selenium-dependent enzymes regulate the balance of thyroid hormones and thus contribute to normal thyroid function. Furthermore, selenium is required for the maintenance of normal hair and nails. In the event of an undersupply, hair and nails also benefit from the intake of this important trace element.
Selenium also plays a central role in the cell-mediated immune response. Because selenium stimulates, for example, the division rate and activity of T cells and contributes in many ways to the normal function of the immune system. That is why it is also called an "immune nutrient" by scientists.
