Since its discovery by Berzelius in 1817, knowledge about the importance of selenium keeps growing. Thanks to knowledge gained by the recent decades’ advancements in medical science, much has changed over the past centuries in terms of how we view micronutrients and their function in preventing and curing illness. It took 140 years before the discovery of selenium led to the recognition that it is essential for human life. Now, evidence on the benefits of supplementation with this antioxidant in a multitude of diseases keeps mounting at an ever-faster pace. Selenium deficiency is associated with an increased risk for cancer, immunodeficiency, osteoporosis, cardiovascular and thyroid diseases
Indeed, the thyroid is a prime example of how important trace elements are for the human body. Both selenium and iodine have long been recognized as essential for this organ and are equally important. A lack of either can have serious consequences for bodily functions. For decades, the researchers at biosyn have been harnessing this knowledge to manufacture blockbuster products that improve health in many clinical indications.
