Since taking a multi-mineral and vitamin tablet once per day after my main meal for two months, I have noticed that my liver spots on my fore-arms have disappeared.
How cool is that?!
There are supposed to be twelve minerals and twelve vitamins in these tabs and Selenium (amino acid chelate) comes out at 12.5mg by weight and 125mg active.
My doctor would no doubt have said that the liver spots come courtesy of advanced years, yet with the right inputs (or maybe cutting some things out?), many afflictions can be reversed if given enough time to work their magic.
Our NZ soils are naturally deficient in Selenium, Boron and Copper among other things.
Doctors these days get almost no training in nutrition!! Pretty weird attitude on the part of the trainers.
(P.S. Unfortunately our very strong sunlight here comes at a cost, with one of the highest ultra-violet ratings in the world, we suffer from the highest rates of Melanoma, so we heed to watch our skin's reaction constantly!! ).
(P.S. number two! Bill Bryson's latest book entitled "The Body - A Guide for Occupants" is certainly worthy of the attention of the esteemed posters on this Site - I am up to page 322 in the chapter: "Into the Nether Regions").

Age spots, liver spots, and moles are usually signs of selenium deficiency. A capsule of selenium, usually 200 mcg, is safe to use daily, with food. The results come pretty quickly. I have seen big hairy moles vanish in a little over a month, dark splotches on the face vanish in days.
BTW, selenium helps prevent skin and breast cancer, and other cancers. And a recent study showed that 250 mcg per liter of blood stops any virus from propagating. Selenium stops covid!
Age spots: Per Joel Wollack who wrote Dead Doctors Don't Lie, 200-250mcg. selenium daily will erase them. Mine on arms have greatly diminished and I hope to soon see them totally gone.
