Although the product has not been tested, as it is a Christmas present for my daughter, special kudos to the company for quick processing and delivery. I just ordered 1 week ago and it was delivered yesterday, well in advance of their estimated processing and delivery timeframe (due to the backlog reported when you are placing an order). I had called to get a better idea of the backlog and what to expect before placing the order, and my fingers were crossed to receive this just prior to Christmas, but they far exceeded in this regard. Well done!!
Selenium is a mineral that is absolutely essential for proper thyroid function. Selenium is highly concentrated in the thyroid gland, more so than in any other organ in the human body, indicating its role in normal thyroid function. It acts as an antioxidant that protects the thyroid gland, a cofactor nutrient that facilitates the production of thyroid hormone, and as a nutrient that is required to facilitate the conversion of T4 to T3 and also prevent the conversion of T3 into inactive, or reverse T3. Hypothyroidism can arise from many causes, however when the cause is an overabundance of reverse T3 many times the simple solution is providing enough selenium for this conversion.
