Apollon Selenium - the essential trace element that is so important for your health and your fighting power that it deserves to be named after of the Greek god of healing
Selenium is an essential, vital trace element that is involved countless, extremely important bodily processes. It is also an indispensable component of the amino acid selenocysteine which is part of a variety of important enzymes. Since your body can not produce selenium itself, it has to be supplied by food or in form of a high-quality selenium product such as Apollon Selenium. Selenium is so important for your fighting power, your recovery and your health that we have dedicated our selenium product to Apollon, the Greek god of healing.
Selenium is found mainly in animal foods such as offal, meat and fish. And even if the classic Spartan diet is always seen as barren and depriving, nutritionists and nutrition historians today assume that the diet of Spartan fighters must have be rich in protein foods such as meat and fish, since without such a diet the hard and brutal military training, as well as the outstanding physical performance in combat would have been impossible to achieve.
It is safe to say that the elite of Spartan fighters have been eating a diet rich in selenium, and many of the benefits of selenium in terms of physical performance and health may have contributed significantly to the immortal legend of the invincible Spartan fighters.
