Is the key to health supplementation?

It’s on the periodic table don’t you know?  And in most of your multivitamins.  It gets largely overlooked by the great PR surrounding Vitamin C, E and big brother Zinc so you probably didn’t even know it was there.

But look deeper into the eyes of Selenium and you will see that there is a lot more to it that periodic table ditties.  Selenium is a naturally occuring mineral that affects a number of bodily functions – notably the thyroid.  It is estimated that many women in Britain are experiencing subclinical thyroid problems which can lead to long term debilitating symptoms. (It’s 15 times more common to have thyroid problems in women than in men)


Because people choose to restrict their diets in different ways – eg low fat or vegetarian – we may be missing out on essential nutrients.  You can find selenium in nuts, cereals, meat, mushrooms, fish, and eggs. Brazil nuts are the richest ordinary dietary source (though this is soil-dependent, since the Brazil nut does not require high levels of the element for its own needs). In descending order of concentration, high levels are also found in kidney, tuna, crab, and lobster.

So you can see why people could become selenium deficient!


Evening Primrose Oil by Efamol is a rich source of GLA – a polyunsaturated fatty acid.  It provides GLA in the form most effectively absorbed and utilised by the body.



GLA controls the body’s production of prostaglandins, chemical messengers that help to regulate many of the body’s processes including the reproductive cycle and the maintenance of hormonal balance.
