Some time ago I posted the message below within another part of this forum and had little to no reply. I read about Selenium through a search of the internet and the potential benefits it might have for bladder cancer sufferers. Recently a local TV network in my town ran a story regarding Selenium which supported this theory.
What is selenium?
Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to good health but required only in small amounts. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Free radicals are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system. See

As for Bee Pollen, I actually take two capsules each day, which consist of 1200mg of Royal Jelly, 800mg Bee Pollen, 400mg Propolis and 100mg Honey. This product is a multi vitamin for general well being. More information can be found at http://www.thenaturalshopper.com.
