Vitamins and selenium - less is more?

I've cut out selenium from my regime, as well as vitamin C tablets for the moment, to see if I notice any difference to my health and because I would have thought that I get enough from my diet.  I will continue to eat a high selenium diet though.

The below article by Chris Kresser suggests that getting sufficient selenium from diet is the best thing.  Having Coeliac though, I may need to supplement for short periods of time in the future.  So far, so good, though.  Certainly, most recent research indicates that it's best to get micro-nutrients and vitamins from food and variety than tablets.  Exceptions include Vitamin D and perhaps iron and B12 if indicated by blood tests.  Taking vitamins unnecessarily may actually be harmful.

For medical treatment talk to your physician.
