I was poisoned taking this in a liquid vitamin, receiving 40,000mcg in a 1 ounce daily dose as compared to 70 mcg that is needed daily. Loss of hair, fingernails, malaise, diaherra, upset stomach, aches, sleepiness and the worst "blahs" imaginable are the result of this poisoning. It is not easily recognized or diagnosed by MD's. The symptoms are loss of hair and fingernails with red semi-circles...

i have ibs. can't say selenium helped. i think it's better for skin conditions, perhaps, or as an antioxidant, but it makes my skin itch something fierce when i take a full capsule... anytime i take a full capsule. What's even up with that?

I use this for polycystic ovaries. 50 mcg everyday to reduce the cysts. Selenium was a natural occurring mineral that would be absorbed in lettuce and vegetables. We have over farmed the land in this area and it is not as abundant in our food supply. Higher levels of selenium have shown some toxicity.
