Selenium is one of just 13 minerals that are classed as absolutely essential to the health of your body. These minerals must be ingested properly to support health, and deficiency can lead to critical health issues. 

Your body needs the essential mineral Selenium for several critical functions:

  • Maintenance of normal, healthy hair and nails
  • The normal and healthy functioning of your immune system
  • Helping to maintain normal thyroid function
  • Supporting healthy spermatogenesis (and important part of fertility)
  • Protecting your cells from oxidative stress and harmful free radicals (it's a great anti-oxidant!)

Whilst Brazil Nuts, seafood and certain meats can be a good source of selenium, it can be tricky to get enough, especially if you eat a restricted diet in any way. Obtaining what your body needs daily or regularly via supplementation can be a great option. Our Elemental Selenium capsules provide a high strength dose of 200μg L-Selenomethionine each, meaning that you only need to take one per day.

  • 2 month's supply per pouch
  • Suitable for vegetarians & vegans
  • Sourced sustainably and manufactured in the UK
  • 200μg L-Selenomethionine per capsule - easily meets your daily needs
  • Each capsule provides 40mg of L-Selenomethionine, which provides 200μg of elemental selenium
  • Non-synthetic, organic, elemental selenium - ours is up to 3 times more bioavailable (ability to be well absorbed)
  • No artificial fillers, colours, preservatives, sweeteners or chemical additives

Birch & Wilde Elemental Selenium is sustainably sourced, and our capsules are made here in the UK (along with all our other capsules) to the strictest GMP standards. Every beautiful and recyclable, 2 monthly refill pouch contains a full 60 day supply of our high grade, highly bioavailable Selenium capsules.

Key Features & Benefits

EFSA approved health benefits of selenium

  • Maintenance of normal, healthy hair and nails
  • The normal and healthy functioning of your immune system
  • Helping to maintain normal thyroid function Supporting healthy spermatogenesis (and important part of fertility)

Why is it important to supplement with Selenium in the UK?

The recommended daily amount (nutrient reference value – NRV) of selenium in the UK for adults is 55µg. Although a well-balanced diet can contribute some of this, deficiency can be prevalent, especially in those who eat restricted diets, or may not always achieve their 5-a-day. 

Low levels of Selenium can seriously impact daily life and if you are struggling with any of the following, it may be able to help:

  • Symptoms related to poor thyroid function – things like brain fog or memory issues, feeling sluggish or experiencing poor energy levels, low mood, hair loss, weight gain or weight loss without trying.  
  • Hair and nails in poor condition – hair loss, weak or flaky nails, dry or brittle hair or nails, hair that breaks or splits easily.
  • Poor immunity levels that might need a boost – run down, catching more colds or viruses than usual.
  • Fertility issues - selenium plays a vital role in the production of healthy sperm and may be important when you are trying to become pregnant.
  • Protection against long term illness or disease – the antioxidant nature of selenium means it plays a role in preventing oxidative stress, which is thought to contribute to a vast array of illnesses (Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, eye conditions, Parkinson’s). 
Product Overview & Description

Selenium is the name given to one of the organic compounds that is an essential mineral for the healthy functioning of several arears of the human body. There are only 13 minerals that are critical to your health and without them some serious issues can arise. Selenium is one of them!

Like many vitamins and minerals (such as Vitamin A, C or E) selenium is an excellent antioxidant. It is also crucial for healthy hair and nails, a well-functioning immune system, the health of your thyroid and areas of fertility (selenium for men is really important in spermatogenesis – healthy sperm production). 

We only need small amounts in order to see the full benefits of selenium, but we are not able to make it ourselves. So it must always come from outside sources. 

Selenium can be found in your diet, in foods like Brazil nuts, eggs, some fish and some meat. However it can be tricky to get enough, especially if your are vegetarian, vegan or eat any kind of restricted diet. Our food chains are not as nutrient rich as they once were, and so this can also impact how much selenium you can get in your diet.  

Why Birch & Wilde?

Our Selenium capsules are vegan friendly, GMO free, and Kosher. They are also free from Gluten, Lactose, Soy and Sugar (although please be aware that our products are made in a facility that may handle these for other products).

Our UK made selenium capsules are created using L-Selenomethionine. This is a natural and organic elemental selenium compound. It has been found to be up to 3 times more bioavailable than synthetic versions of selenium (found in many other supplement capsules and multivits), and it means that you reap far greater benefits.

Sustainably sourced, UK made and free from filler, binders and any nasties you can be sure your are getting the very best quality and purity.
