Modern biochemistry tells us that trace minerals zinc, manganese, boron, vanadium, molybdenum, strontium, silicon, iron, chromium and selenium are essential to health. Our biochemistry expects to find them in plant foods. Human digestion adapted to the task of extracting phyto (plant) minerals over the course of millions of years of evolution.
A triumvirate of antioxidant enzymes, superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase, are manufactured on site inside cells, and serve as your primary defense against oxidative damage at the cellular level. Selenium is an essential component of glutathione peroxidase. An undersupply of Selenium may lead to profound oxidative damage to cell structures. It is customarily supplied by grains and vegetables in the diet, but the amount of Selenium found in the plant directly reflects the amount of Selenium in the soil. And Selenium is not evenly distributed throughout the Earths agricultural regions due simply to conditions and forces at play as the Earths crust was formed millennia ago. Broad farming regions of the United States and China, for example, naturally have little Selenium in the soil.
