Selenium is the most important mineral you’re probably not taking. Why? The immune system requires selenium to produce proteins that prevent viruses from mutating in the body-without enough, it can’t fight off infection. To sidestep viral infections, I recommend eating at least 16 oz. of selenium-rich foods like tuna, cod, turkey, lamb or mushrooms daily to keep levels optimal.
