Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is a part of more than two dozen important proteins. Selenium plays an important role in reproduction, supports thyroid health, and offers protection from oxidative damage. Selenium is naturally present in many foods and exists in two forms: inorganic (selenate and selenite) and organic (selenomethionine and selenocysteine). Both the organic and inorganic forms can be good dietary sources of selenium.
Animal sources of dietary selenium include fish, shellfish, red meat, eggs, chicken, and liver. Plant sources of dietary selenium include vegetables, grains, nuts, and garlic. Plants absorb inorganic selenites and selenates from the soil and convert them to the organic forms, mostly selenocysteine and selenomethionine and their methylated derivatives. However, the amount of selenium in plant sources depends on the amount of the mineral in the soil where they are grown and can vary from region to region. Because the body does not make selenium, it is important to get selenium from the diet or through supplementation.
