Default Nutrients Benefit Those with HIV


(OMNS October 25, 2007) A double-blind, randomized clinical trial has shown that HIV-positive patients given supplemental nutrients can stop their decline into AIDS.

Edith Namulemia, James Sparling and Harold Foster’s findings were just published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. (1)

The study, conducted at Mengo Hospital, Kampala, Uganda, was designed to test the impacts of two nutrient mixtures on the body’s ability to produce glutathione peroxidase and to monitor any effects of such changes on levels of CD4 T lymphocytes, body weight and quality of life.

310 patients were randomly divided into two groups, both receiving nutritional supplements for a year, one group receiving an additional seven nutrients.

In both groups, serum glutathione peroxidase levels increased by 250 percent. This enzyme normally declines as HIV/AIDS progresses. CD4 cell counts, indicative of an improving immune system, also rose in both treatment groups. In addition, quality of life, as measured using the Karnofsky scale also increased over the year.

Patients’ gains in glutathione peroxidase, CD4 cell counts, weight and quality of life were all highly statistically significant. Both males and females benefited to the same degree from the two nutrient combinations.
