-  Can improve the “glowing appearance” of hair


-  Can increase hair thickness and nail length


-  Can, together with optimum copper and zinc, help facilitate hair growth and help prevent hair loss


-  Together with optimum copper and zinc helps reduce greying hair




Research has shown that optimum Selenium:

-  Can increase Skin Thickness


-  Reduces skin roughness and skin scaling


-  Improved the effect of the powerful antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase and there was an improvement with skin condition and a reduction of acne symptoms and an improvement with psoriasis


-  Improves scalp and skin atopic dermatitis


-  People who experience Acne have been found to have low levels of selenium


Note: changing to a diet that contains more alkali forming foods rather than acid forming foods has been shown to help the condition of both Hair and Skin.
