health products effect on T-cells ?

Feb 18, 2007

Dear Doctor, Certain nutritional supplements ( immune formula capsules ) have been found to stimulate T-lymphocytes production, but I suspect the extent of such is too negligible to have a material effect on CD4 or CD 8 counts or percentages, does it ? If it does which of the two would it likley increase, or is it a totally different subset of cells that it might impacts ( if at all )? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Sorry can't answer the question as no good controlled studies have been done with these kinds of products.
