So I've gotten together, from various sources, the "top 10" recommended supplements. For most items, there doesn't seem to be an issue. First off, the second time (I think) that I tried taking the selenium cap I got sick right away - as in I put it in my mouth, couldn't even swallow it, and immediately got sick (pretty sure it was the odour that got to me).
I managed to take it a couple times a few days later (plug nose, chug with water), but was definitely feeling nauseous later. At the time I wasn't sure if the nausea was due to the selenium or if I was taking too much MCT oil (though I was ramping up slowly with my BPC).
Slacked on supplements for a little while over christmas, took my morning dosages again today and about an 60-90 minutes (didn't look at the time) afterwards, I was feeling nauseous and got sick again. I've taken all the other supplements without selenium and had no issues so I"m pretty sure its that one that is affecting me.
The selenium I was taking was 200mcg SISU Selenium Plus which is Selenomethionine. Does anybody know if I try finding it in the other recommended form (Se Methyl Selenocysteine) if I might react better to it? Is there anything I can do to alleviate this reaction â€¦ or if I should just eliminate it completely.
If I cannot take selenium, should I be skipping the iodine as well (I have potassium iodide capsules)
