Sodium selenite (Selenium)

Sodium selenite is a salt, a colourless solid, and the most common water-soluble selenium compound. Because selenium is an essential element, sodium selenite is an ingredient in some food supplements.

The US Food and Drug Administration approved a selenium supplement to animal diets. The most common form used is sodium selenite supplements added to pet foods.

Selenium is a trace element essential in small amounts. Humans and animals require selenium for the function of a number of enzymes known as selenoproteins. At least 25 selenoproteins have been identified, but the metabolic functions have been identified for only about one-half of them.

Insufficient selenium intake results in decreased activity of the glutathione peroxidases as well as some other thioredoxin reductase and thyroid deiodinases. Even when severe, isolated selenium deficiency does not usually result in obvious clinical illness. However, selenium-deficient individuals appear to be more susceptible to additional physiological stresses.
