"... The connective tissue and cartilage in less favored cuts of meat such as feet, knuckles, organ meats, and stew meat are rich in the proteins glycine and proline. These amino acids help reduce inflammation, calm mental activity, and promote sleep, making stress less dangerous for the body. The diets of traditional peoples included the complete animal, with all its parts. These native populations were remarkably free of the degenerative diseases of modern civilization. We recommend that you increase the amount of amino acids such as glycine and proline in your diet by eating dishes cooked with these cuts. ..."
December 28, 2019 - Selenium Can Suppress a Chronic Inflammatory Response -
"... Supplementation with selenium has been shown to enhance the natural antioxidant defense system of cells. The activity of NF- kappaB (nuclear factor kappaB), known to trigger a chronic inflammatory response, can be suppressed using selenium. Supplementation has also been reported to decrease the concentration of immune-trafficking components of lymphocytes called L-selectin. These adhesion molecules give inflammatory T-cells the green light to leave the bloodstream and bind to tissues in the body resulting in a heightened inflammatory response.
Selenium is part of glutathione peroxidase which protects cell components from oxidative damage due to peroxides produced in cellular metabolism. selenium depletion may decrease immune functions.Improvement in selenium status was associated with a 57% increase in the activity of platelet glutathione peroxidase in a group supplemented with selenium.
One of the best detoxifying agents to prevent mercury build-up is the mineral selenium. Most people have elevated concentrations of mercury in their body. Mercury competes with other essential trace minerals at cellular binding sites. A deficiency of trace minerals can readily allow mercury to accumulate in and contaminate cells by inhibiting their natural energy producing abilities, blocking enzymatic activity and shutting down antioxidant systems."
