In this video, we’re going to talk about selenium. Selenium is a trace mineral. This means you only need small amounts of it, but it’s very important. Selenium helps you convert T4 to T3 (the active form of the thyroid hormone). A selenium deficiency can lead to symptoms of hypothyroid. Your DNA also needs selenium to be created. 

Foods rich in selenium:
• Brazil nuts
• Tuna 
• Shrimp 
• Sardines 
• Sea kelp 

If you consume foods high in selenium, but you’re experiencing selenium deficiency symptoms, it could be because of a few things, including: 
• You have intestinal absorption problems 
• You had gastric bypass surgery 
• You’re over the age of 90 
• You’re on statins 

Symptoms of a selenium deficiency:
1. Glutathione deficiency (can lead to heart problems) 
2. Infertility 
3. Myocardial necrosis 
4. Muscle weakness 
5. Mood problems, anxiety, and confusion 
6. Fatigue and brain fog 
7. Hair loss 
8. Low sperm count
