The importance of selenium to human health

Lancet

Aug 30, 2000

Margaret Rayman

Abstract

The essential trace mineral, selenium, is of fundamental importance to human health. As a constituent of selenoproteins, selenium has structural and enzymic roles, in the latter context being best-known as an antioxidant and catalyst for the production of active thyroid hormone.
