Selenium - health benefits

Selenium - health benefits

In the work of the thyroid gland, a special role is played by selenium, which contributes to the synthesis of thyroid hormones mediated through the so-called selenoproteins (proteins instead of selenium).

We have already talked about those that thyroid gland produces an inactive form of thyroid hormones - thyroxine (T4) and a small number of active forms - triiodothyronine (T3). The main amount of human T3 is taken from tissues, and one molecule of iodine is split from the T4 molecule and the active hormone T3 is created.

The process of splitting iodine can be called deiodination. Vіdbuvaєtsya wines for the help of special enzymes - deiodinases. Head rank, tse yak time selenium deiodinase.

But the role of selenium in the robotic thyroid gland is not limited by deiodination. So, for example, selenoprotein under the name glutathione peroxidase protects the thyroid gland from oxidative stress, in order to induce free radicals of sourness, as if they are settled down for an hour of work.

The main sources of selenium are:

mʼasnі products;






Dzherel poached - we can grow visnovki: if there is not enough selenium in the soil, the person will have a deficiency of selenium (just like with iodine). It is important that the insufficient amount of selenium in the soil is registered in Mayzha throughout the territory of Ukraine.

It is also a factor that can help with selenium deficiency:

technological processing of products;

chicken cigarettes;

poor vіk;

saving eggs, white rice, alcohol, coffee.

As we know, to instill enough iodine in the absence of selenium can lead to sickness of the thyroid disease. Є navit data, low concentration of selenium in the blood serum is a risk factor for the development of nodular goiter.

Later, healthy thyroid glands lie not only in the presence of adequate storage of iodine, but also other elements, among which the role of selenium is remembered.

Be healthy!
