Vitamin Supplements and Living with HIV/AIDS

Most people living with HIV/AIDS are interested in learning more about what vitamin supplements might be useful in building their immune system and increasing their general health. And individuals who are taking and HIV medications are typically good consumers of health-related information.

So how about taking natural vitamin supplements in addition to an antiviral regimen? Is it worth the time and expense to include various available dietary supplements? As with any additional nutrients that someone may take it is especially important for anyone with immune issues to do their research.

One online authority on HIV/AIDS health information is The Body. The Body is designed for educational purposes only and is not engaged in rendering medical advice or professional services. But TheBody.com knows what they are talking about and have demonstrated over the years that it is important to learn everything possible.

Recently they included an article titled An Introduction to Dietary Supplement for People Living With HIV/AIDS. It is a well thought-out description of how supplements can be useful in promoting healthy living. We encourage everyone to check out this valuable information.

They recommend the following dietary supplements to be considered (click on the supplement name for more information from www.thebody.com):

NutriFeron® Breakthrough immune protection* — patented, exclusive formula

THE CHALLENGE

Every day our bodies are under attack by pathogens and dangerous microbes that infest our surroundings with an unseen, unfelt, yet undeniable health threat. Our body’s built-in immune system protects us whenever possible, but it’s under constant attack from poor nutrition, stress, pollution, and fatigue.

NUTRIFERON

NutriFeron is a powerful breakthrough in immune system science. It is a patented, clinically proven blend of immune-strengthening plant extracts. For daily use, it increases the production of your body’s natural interferon, a critical activator of the immune system. NutriFeron works at the cellular level in two ways: *
• Rapidly activates your immune system’s defenses*
• Mobilizes the immune system’s “search-and-destroy” teams*

THE SHAKLEE DIFFERENCE

NutriFeron is the only immunity supplement formulated by the discoverer of natural interferon, after an exhaustive review of 200 natural compounds.
Patented, clinically proven formula
A natural way to keep your immune system finely tuned and on ready alert, taking the defenses you already have and making them even better.*
Available exclusively through Shaklee, NutriFeron is a powerfully effective supplement that has exceeded a stringent set of scientific tests for safety, purity, potency, and clinical tests for performance.

Our Favorite Shaklee Products

There are many Shaklee Products that we think of as our favorites. We hope that you will be interested to try them out for yourself. And remember that there is always a money-back guarantee – they are that good!

1. Vivix®. Shaklee calls it “a revolutionary breakthrough in the fight against cellular aging.” The ingredients in Vivix have been shown in laboratory studies to positively impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging. In fact, a 30-day supply delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine, and laboratory studies found Vivix to be 10x more powerful in slowing a key mechanism of aging than resveratrol. It’s really good stuff!*
2. Shaklee Vitalizer™. This is my foundation. In one daily packet I get foundational nutrients I need, including sustained release B and C vitamins, minerals and more, plus probiotics, Omega-3s and more. If you’re like 9 out of 10 Americans, you don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, and that means you may not be getting enough of the right nutrients. That’s a great reason to supplement what you eat and I really like the way Vitalizer makes me feel!
3. Cinch® Vanilla Shake Mix: Soy or Cinch® Vanilla Shake Mix: Whey. I love these shakes for so many reasons. They are rich in protein, I can mix in strawberries, bananas, peaches, whatever and it always tastes great. That’s my routine…blender, milk, fruit, cinch shake powder. It’s so good. I feel full and stay feeling full throughout the morning. They’re great for people watching what they eat. Both feature an ingredient called Leucine which helps retain muscle.
4. Basic-H2® Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate. I love this because I can use it in so many different ways around the house. I clean my whole house with it. One bottle goes a long, long way. A 16 oz bottle creates an unbelievable 48 gallons of super-safe, really powerful, all purpose cleaner. It replaces so many household cleaners I used to buy at the grocery store. It’s concentrated, so it saves me a lot of money compared to ready-to-use cleaners. It’s nontoxic, too!
5. NutriFeron®. NutriFeron is “a clinically supported blend of immune-strengthening plant extracts.” I simply call it an immune system booster. It’s in my top 5 because so many of my friends and family use it. I feel like it boosts my immune system defenses and helps increase my resistance wherever my paths take me.*
6. Nutrition Therapy Skin Care System™. This is a great skin care system, for women and men. The exclusive to this is “Vital Repair+® which blocks ALL those skin-damaging free radical reactions and actually allows the skin to keep making healthy cells.” For me, I like it because it leaves my skin looking smooth and feeling incredible.
7. Nature Bright® Laundry Booster and Stain Remover. This stuff is like gold in my laundry room. I use it on grass stains, dirt, even stains on upholstery in the car or home. You name it. It cleans with “natural enzymes and active oxygen” so it seems to keep my clothes bright without fading, but still clean.
8. Fresh Laundry Concentrate (Powder). If awards were given out for the amount of wash that is done in homes, our home could qualify to be a winner. I really like Fresh Laundry Concentrate Powder. The fragranced version smells great, it cleans very well. It cleans with natural enzymes and biodegradable surfactants, and is very safe in water systems. I love that it is concentrated too. With just a ¼ cup, you can clean a whole load.
9. Cinch® Snack Bars. When I get those cravings for a snack, I really like having Cinch Snack Bars around! Each bar has 10 grams of protein and only 120 or 130 calories—I like that, a lot. When I look at some other bars on the market, they often don’t even have 3 grams of protein and they’re full of sugar. Like the shakes and meal bars, these Cinch snack bars also have Leucine, which helps preserve muscle. And, they taste great!
10. Cinch® Energy Tea Mix. For me, Cinch teas are a safe, natural energy boost and a great alternative to sugary snacks, coffee and soda. You can drink it hot or cold. It comes in little single serve sticks so you can just add it to a water bottle; they’re very portable and packable. One of my favorite parts – it’s not too tart and not too sweet. It’s just right!
