Additional product info:
Selenium at 3.5-400 µg per day is an antioxidant for the maintenance of good health (3). In a prospective, randomized study design, immunological changes in free-living, healthy aged humans (57-84 years of age) given a placebo, 45 mg beta-carotene, 400 mcg selenium or 45 mg beta-carotene plus 400 mcg selenium per day for 6 months and after 2 months of discontinuation were evaluated. Selenium and selenium plus beta-carotene supplementation caused an increase in total T cells. The study found that selenium enhanced immune function (NK cell cytotoxicity) and phenotypic expression of T-cell subsets, whereas beta-carotene affected only immune function (4).
