Re: Im adding selenium to my regimine but..

How much are you taking?
200mcg is o.k to take for a short while, 100 mcg is the average dose. Most people do not have any problems on 100 mcg.
Symptoms of too much selenium is Nausea, Abdominal pain, Diarrhea, Fatigue, Irritability and loss of hair and fingernails.
