Selenium is not present in many things these days, so the pills are a good supplement.

Levels of selenium in wheat has declined & I feel this helps the balance of minerals I consume

08 July 2014

As I have a family history of high blood pressure and cancer, I use selenium along with other supplements, to maintain my immune system and a healthy heart. Another reason for using selenium is to offset any effects of mercury fillings I have.
I have been taking selenium on an off for last 7 years. Whether taking selenium is helping or not, I don’t know. All I can say is that, I am healthy for a 66 year old and not on any prescribed medications. So I think it must be helping me to stay healthy.

08 July 2014

Very good value, speedy delivery and I can get vegetarian alternatives which is important to me.

Boosts my imune system rarely have a cold .

08 July 2014

The jury is still out on this one, although I have taken it for three years. I had a variety of fungal conditions, but have used topical products as well, so difficult to know what works. Some of the conditions have cleared up, while others persist.

Aids the immune system.

01 July 2014

Evidence not so strong as seemed in past but since on it my wife and I seemed to have less "colds" etc. and still getting potential antioxidant and cancer protective benefits

01 July 2014

boosts immune system, difficult to quantify, but that what I'm told!

01 July 2014

I live in an area where Selenium levels in the soil are low, and there is prevalence of thyroid problems. Seems to make sense to take Selenium-supplement.

As above. But this item is a very interesting one and has appeared in a number
research papers particularly prostate cancer and other serious diseases. No conclusions have resulted but like aspirin I believe that it has yet to reveal its full
potential. Very cheap to produce - may be thats the reason!

I buy this for my husband which he takes with others I buy and as he is 75 and is very rarely ill and arthritic pain is manageable then I think they must be doing something good.

The tablets came in a new blister pack. I understand the tablets are better
protected but I got fewer tablets for the same price and I strongly prefer the old
slim packaging. I thought it was a very good design.

Thank you for your review.

My main criticism of all products is the size of the blister packs, too large to leave out, ie not put away each time

Thank you for your review - We're sorry you're not a fan of our letterbox-friendly blister packs - we had a lot of negative feedback about our tubs and have moved our whole range over to foil-sealed blister packs to ensure uncontaminated, fresh tablets right through the pack. It was necessary to increase the length of the box to ensure it remained letterbox friendly.
