Whey protein is rich in the amino acid cysteine, which the body uses to make glutathione, an important antioxidant. Supplementing with it may improve immune function.
Vitamin B6 deficiency was found in more than one-third of HIV-positive men, deficiency was associated with decreased immune function in this group. Supplementing with the vitamin may improve survival rate.
|0||Vitamin B3 (Niacin)||,,,,,,|
Vitamin B3 may play a role in HIV prevention and treatment. A form of vitamin B3 (niacinamide) has been shown to inhibit HIV in test tube studies.
In HIV-positive people with B-vitamin deficiency, B vitamins appear to delay progression to and death from AIDS.
People with AIDS often have thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency, which may contribute to some neurological abnormalities, supplementing with the vitamin may help.
Vitamin A deficiency is common in people with HIV infection, and low levels of the vitamin are associated with greater disease severity. Ask your doctor if vitamin A is right for you.
Turmeric may be a useful herb with immune effects in people infected with HIV. One trial found that curcumin, turmeric's main active compound, helped improve CD4+ cell counts.
In one trial, a thymus extract known as Thymomodulin improved several immune parameters among people with early HIV infection, including an increase in T-helper cells.
A 5% solution of tea tree oil has been shown to eliminate oral thrush in people with AIDS, according to one trial.
Shiitake is medicinal mushroom immune-modulating effects that may be beneficial for people with HIV infection.
Reishi is medicinal mushroom with immune-modulating effects that may be beneficial for people with HIV infection.
Mistletoe injections into the skin have shown beneficial effects in people with HIV.
One trial found that methionine may improve memory recall in people with AIDS-related nervous system degeneration.
Maitake mushrooms contain immuno-modulating polysaccharides (including beta-D-glucan) that may be supportive for HIV infection.
Iron deficiency is often present in HIV-positive children. Supplementing with it, under a doctors supervision, may support immune function.
The amino acid glutamine is needed for the synthesis of glutathione, an important antioxidant that is frequently depleted in people with HIV and AIDS.
Garlic may help combat opportunistic infections. In one trial, an aged garlic extract reduced the number of infections and relieved diarrhea in a group of patients with AIDS.
Low folic acid levels are also common in HIV-positive people, supplementing may help correct a deficiency.
Eleuthero is an immune-modulating plant that may be beneficial for people with HIV infection.
Supplementing with echinacea may increase immune activity against HIV.
In one trial, people with HIV who took CoQ10 experienced no further infections for up to seven months, and counts of infection-fighting white blood cells improved in some cases.
Beta-carotene levels have been found to be low in HIV-positive people, supplementing with it may be beneficial.
One study found that steamed then dried Asian ginseng had beneficial effects in people infected with HIV and increased the effectiveness of the anti-HIV drug AZT.
A trial of isolated andrographolides, found in andrographis, showed that they decreased viral load and increased CD4 lymphocyte levels in people with HIV infection.
12 to 45 mg daily. Zinc levels are frequently low in people with HIV infection. Zinc supplements have been shown to reduce the number of infections in people with AIDS.
Take under medical supervision: 400 mcg daily. Supplementing with selenium may result in fewer infections, a healthier appetite, and other benefits.
800 mg daily. Supplementing with NAC may slow the decline in immune function.
Follow label directions. Taking a daily multivitamin supplement may prevent common deficiencies associated with HIV and AIDS.
Licorice inhibits HIV reproduction in test tubes, supplementing with it may be safe and effective for long-term treatment of HIV infection.
200 to 500 mg daily. Large amounts of supplemental DHEA may alleviate fatigue in HIV-positive people.
1.5 grams of HMB, 7 grams of L-glutamine, and 7 grams of L-arginine twice per day. The combination of glutamine, arginine, and HMB may prevent loss of lean body mass in people with AIDS-associated wasting.
Supplementing with folic acid in amounts as little as 300 to 800 mcg per day may increase vitamin B12 requirements. Therefore, it would be prudent for people taking folic acid to supplement with vitamin B12.
Supplementation with vitamin B12, even in relatively small amounts, can increase folic acid requirements, For that reason, people taking vitamin B12 supplements should also consider taking folic acid.
In addition, supplementing with folic acid can mask the laboratory diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Failure to identify and treat vitamin B12 deficiency in a timely manner can lead to permanent neurological damage. The relatively small amount of vitamin B12 present in most supplements is not sufficient to prevent or correct vitamin B12 deficiency in people who have pernicious anemia (a condition caused by vitamin B12 malabsorption). For that reason, people should tell their doctor if they are taking folic acid supplements, so that the doctor will order alternative laboratory tests if vitamin B12 deficiency is suspected.
