Selenium is a trace mineral that naturally occurs in volcanic soil. Due to major selenium soil deficiency in Europe, our daily selenium intake is low. Selenium is a natural antioxidant defence that can help prevent cellular damage from free radicals.

The hens obtain higher levels of DHA Omega-3 from their diet, which is supplemented with a natural, algal-based form of DHA. Other Omega-3 supplements are often based on fish oils or plant based oils such as linseed; both of which can taint the flavour. The algal-based DHA also offers a very sustainable farming method.

DHA Omega-3 benefits:

  • Contributes to brain health & function, maternal health and cognitive function in the elderly. Helping to slow the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • DHA helps brain, eye and nerve development, visual health and function and eye health
  • DHA and EPA fatty acids contrinute to the cardiovascular system: maintenance and promotion of heart health and healthy circulation
  • DHA and EPA fatty acids play a very important part in carbohydrate metabolism and insulin sensitivity. Long term maintenance of normal blood glucose concentrations

Selenium benefits:  

  • Boost your immune system
  • Helps regulate your thyroid hormone production
  • Contributes to antioxidant activity (cell wall protection)
  • Plays an important role in fertility (spermatogenesis)
  • Strengthens hair follicles, nails and boosts the collagen in your skin

Whilst research is still taking place, we first looked at adding selenium to the hen’s diet after reading a study from Liverpool University linking selenium with the protection of the cells around the pancreas. Due to a family history of pancreatitis in the family, this is a very important issue for us, which is why 5p from every box sold is donated to PCUK.

Two Boost the Roost eggs contain 60% of your recommended daily intake of selenium, and 40% of DHA & EPA Omega 3.
