Host Defense
May 12, 2004

A product called Host Defense by New Chapter claims to increase the NK cells by 300%. Will this help me fight my HIV or is it a waste of my time? Also what difference do you see in using the liquid as opposed to the pill form?

What value do you see in using this product overall?

Response from Mr. Vergel

I will not believe anyone who makes claims without data from a respected source. Too many people are making claims for the sake of money. Ask them to show you HIV specific data from a recognized medical school or research institute. If they do not have it, just pass on it.
