Selenium is a trace mineral. It’s only needed in small amounts. And even though selenium is abundantly found in our environment, deficiencies are a problem these days. It may be that our soil contains less selenium than it used to due to factory farming practices. But it’s also because our Western diet is highly processed and lacks many essential nutrients.

Symptoms of selenium deficiency are often related to the functions it plays. For example, hair loss is a symptom of selenium deficiency. And it’s also a symptom of thyroid disease. Other symptoms include:

Fatigue
Depression
Brain fog
Muscle weakness
Frequent illness/infections
Selenium deficiencies are also associated with serious degenerative diseases. And in many cases, evidence points to a loss of antioxidant activity.

For example, selenium-containing antioxidant enzymes prevent the oxidation of fats in your body, which helps prevent inflammation and the build-up of plaques in your arteries. Thus, evidence suggests a selenium deficiency could lead to heart disease.

Other diseases associated with a selenium deficiency include:

Congestive cardiomyopathy (e.g., Keshan disease)
Cancer (e.g., prostate, liver, and breast)
Thyroid disease
Neurological disorders (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease)
Mood disorders
Bone and joint disorders (e.g., Keshin-beck disease)
Infertility
Inflammatory bowel diseases
