I can't remember where I read that I should take 100 mcg of Selenium, in addition to what might be in my multi.  I could have read it in a sugar sensitivity book or to help depression.

Is this something that a type O should take?  Or just under certain protocols?

Thanks for any info.

Thank you for the information Lola  
As an O I eat a lot of meat and fish, so I guess I'm good to go, even though I'm hypothyroid and trying to stabilize my doses.

I didn't see anything in protocol 9 that mentions selenium.  Am I missing something?

Look in the entries for type B and AB.  

The Teacher catalyst product includes selenium.

Lola, how does this:

     "Look in the entries for type B and AB.

help me decide if I need to take extra selenium for thyroid, depression, or sugar sensitivity?

It is more beneficial for B and AB, and GT Teachers as groups. Whether or not you, the individual, needs more selenium is another question and one we can't answer.

It sounds to me like selenium is not a nutrient that O's normally need to supplement with, and that there are other supplements that are usually more helpful for O's with sugar sensitivity, thyroid problems, and depression.

It might still be useful for you personally, as we're all unique individuals. But take a look at the Dr D protocols for your own situation, and see which nutrients are suggested. Take a look at how much selenium is already found in your diet.

I like to take it as it is good against cancer & heart trouble.  It also is supposed to make the blood vessels stronger.  I take E as I eat a lot of olive oil & doubt that the natural E is preserved in any product that is bought or cooked.

My husband is AB(&probably a Warrior) & I would think he would need more E & selenium, but his dr. says to not take extra, but to just take a good multi. (This dr. is better than the previous one; he recommends better nutritional ideas & reduced Mr T's medications.)

The new location of his job has more pollution, & I would think that for sure he would benefit from more E & selenium!

I take 200 mcg of selenium a day. For what it's worth. I'm a fairly large person though.

I take 200 mcg selenium every other day just to please my doctor, so I consider this sort of cheating, because I could have another, better O/Gatherer beneficial anticancer supp instead. I may be exaggerating though ("Jupiter guiding planet" ). Would it were an O avoid, Dr. D would have mentioned this somewhere, I believe.

Selenium is necessary for your body to use iodine. So if you're using iodized salt and not getting a significant source of selenium in your diet (I think it's mainly seafood, seaweed, and brazil nuts), it would seem prudent to take a small amount to supplement.

Iodine in the absence of selenium seems to cause thyroid problems.

Good luck!

But if you eat enough meat and fish, it shouldn't be problem?

tuna and salmon are very high in selenium. You have to watch it to not overdose on it. One brazil nut contains enough selenium for the day. Have a nut instead of supplemental.
