“Research shows that there is a connection between selenium supplementation, thyroid gland and immune function.”

According to the latest official report by the US National Library of Medicine / National Center for Biological Information from 2016, anemia affects an estimated 25% to 37% respectively of the world’s population and depending on region, and it is estimated that up to half of all cases are due to iron deficiency. Iron deficiency is one of the most widespread nutritional disorders, iron deficiency anemia is estimated to affect one-third of all women of reproductive age and over 47% of children of pre-school age. 

Hashimoto’s disease (an autoimmune disorder), that is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States, affects about 1 out of 20. Solutions are highly needed but not every treatment or supplement turns out to be beneficial. Synthetic and natural plant or animal nutraceuticals are a controversial subject and one of debate for several decades. Synthetic drugs are designed to mimic what nature naturally provides and is often produced with harsh chemicals—as recently discovered with so called hormone free thyroid gland. The body has difficulty recognizing synthetic drugs, making them harder to metabolize, and for this reason are more likely to induce toxicity and adverse side effects.

What is the Problem with Iron Supplements?

Similar to prescription medication, iron supplements often have disadvantages as well. In case of iron supplements, these can occur as an unpleasant metallic taste of typical iron sources or digestive problems. These drawbacks are especially problematic for children whose need for iron is critical to growth and development. “Existing iron supplements for children often come in inconvenient solid forms that can trigger reluctance to supplementation in children or adults with swallowing difficulties. Liquid iron formulations for children would be an appealing option.”[1]

Why Is Selenium Needed?

Our thyroid gland has the highest concentration of selenium in the body, those with hypothyroidism, the autoimmune Hashimoto’s  or thyroid cancer have lower than normal selenium levels, a key role in the thyroid gland’s ability to produce thyroid hormone.  

Research shows that there is a connection between selenium supplementation, thyroid gland and immune function (since selenium increases the production of activated T-cells and natural killer cell activity). Supplementing with selenium could also reduce the severity of hypothyroidism symptoms. Some studies have found that treating patients who have mild to moderate Graves’ orbitopathy (thyroid eye disease), selenium supplements could improve their eye health and slow progression of symptoms.
