Press Release
A team of scientists have discovered that selenium, a micronutrient, can help boost the antioxidant system on the heels of stroke in animals and suggests that a similar treatment could be used to limit brain damage in patients. Stroke is a leading cause of disability and death in the United States, occurring once every 40 seconds.
