    Has anyone had success with selenium? Has it helped with anything?

    Bump. I was just wondering as well - I was looking up selenium amounts on various search results, and they seem to grossly vary. Like some websites list 1 serving of pasta have 1/2 the RDA, and other 1/8 the RDA. I am curious of the selenium content in oats. I'd rather not have to buy Brazil nuts because they are super expensive, and they last batch I bought at Trader Schmoe's tasted bitter and had like a darker color in the center. They were a little nasty, I might have to throw them away.

    I think the selenium content of land-based plants can vary quite a bit depending on the soil content. I live in a place known to be low in soil selenium. Possibly seafood might provide a more reliable source?

    Sounds rancid. Chucking them is probably wise. Fresh enough ones shouldn't taste like that.

    seems to be helping me weight loss. fantastic warm body feeling = higher metabolism/ higher t3.
    seems to also be very anti estrogenic
