How Much Selenium for IR?


If I take 50mg of iodine per day to replenish stores, how much selenium should I take during the process?
Directly referencing


200mcg If you never take selenium at this dose should start selenium days before starting ir. You continue 200mcg day through out.


Thanks for replying; can you provide sources? Would be great man, thanks.


Source is @KSman. Surprised it’s not in the sticky.


NOT 200mg, its 200mcg (Micrograms). Big difference.


I fixed it b thanks.


I suggest 200mg selenium based on my reading and the content of many multi-vits that contain iodine and selenium. Getting single mineral supplements is not cost effective.
