Selenium for Healthy Nails

By Inspirationail

CheeseLike many of the minerals that are important to nails, selenium is essential to our health but only found in small traces within the body.

It is incorporated into proteins with antioxidant properties, some of which help to prevent things like cancer & heart disease, while others regulate the thyroid gland.

Plants are the largest dietary sources of selenium & food content depends on the level of the mineral in the soil where it grows.
