Research shows eating one Brazil nut a day can corrected selenium deficiency in women
The mineral selenium is essential for good health, and a recent study in Nutrition found that people with low blood levels were able to improve those levels simply by eating one Brazil nut a day.

Nutty nutrition

Though selenium deficiency is thought to be uncommon in the US, it is important to correct any deficiencies if they do exist. Selenium affects immune system and thyroid function and also works as an antioxidant, helping prevent conditions associated with oxidative stress such as heart disease and cancer.

In this study, 37 women who were deficient in selenium ate one Brazil nut a day (which provided 290 mcg of selenium) for eight weeks. At the end of the intervention, selenium deficiency had been corrected in all of the women.

"The essential micronutrient selenium functions as a component of many selenoproteins in antioxidant and redox reactions, thyroid hormone metabolism, immune function, and reproduction," said Cristiane Cominetti, PhD and her colleagues from the Department of Food and Experimental Nutrition, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science, University of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil. "Disruptions in selenium status may result in suboptimal amounts of selenoproteins, which are associated with increased levels of oxidative stress and its related diseases."

Sourcing selenium

  • Learn about selenium-rich foods. Brazil nuts are one of the top sources of selenium, but other good options include fish, poultry, meat, rice, and eggs.
  • Get your recommended daily allowance. A healthy non-pregnant adult does not need a lot of selenium to meet the RDA, which according to the Office of Dietary Supplements is 55 mcg per day; the highest amount an adult should take is 400 mcg per day. The women in this study were getting significantly more than the recommended daily allowance of selenium in order to raise selenium levels. The Office of Dietary Supplements points out that some Brazil nuts are unusually high in selenium (possibly with more than 500 mcg of selenium per nut), so they recommend eating Brazil nuts occasionally.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Eating a balanced diet that includes food sources mentioned above can help ensure you are getting enough selenium and other vitamins and minerals. Check with your doctor before taking a selenium supplement.

        The pocket pack is easy to carry and better than carrying vitamins, etc in your pocket with the possiblity of falling out. A little noisy but better than pocket lint.

                I bought one of these pill organizers while visiting the store about 10 years ago. It's the exact same case only mine didn't have a log on the top. I am on maintenance medication and have used and carried this case every single day. After all those years of use, it finally cracked on the side today. I looked on the website and was very excited to see this is still available. I'm getting another one!

                Comments about GNC Pocket Pack:

                In terms of pocket real estate, it'll occupy the majority of it, so it's not more convenient than just loose-loading your pockets with the same caps/pills.

                I usually wear loose-fit khakis to work and still found it kinda cumbersome. To elaborate, it's small enough to fit easily--don't mistake me, but was constantly aware of its presence during activity, walking or anything, because it was large enough that when the pocket stretched during activity, the pocket pack would largely resist shifting...if that makes sense. But for .70 cents, you don't have much to lose; if you're OCD and need organization or require protection from bare exposure to the contents of your pocket or just protection if you constantly drop your supplements (from your pocket), this might be quite valuable to you. My suggestion is, if you don't mind living by the 5-second rule...skip this purchase. A loose pocket is just fine...unless there's a hole in said pocket.

                  Its a good product but, but I was hoping to recieve the box pictured. I ended up recieving the one that is available at the shops which is not a rectangle shaped box. They sent out the one with a tappered top, which holds less pills by design.

                  Bring back the rectangle box GNC!
