Several foods contain selenium, such as whole grains, nuts (especially Brazil nuts), poultry, red meat and seafood and it is recommended 55 mcg per day. Foods rich in vitamin E, such as nuts and seeds, will increase the effectiveness of selenium in the body. Your best bet to get enough selenium is to eat a varied, balanced diet or try a supplement containing the mineral.
