Diet Modulation of Chronic Inflammation in Individuals with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Those living with human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) may experience chronic inflammation that may affect quality of life. Although no definitive research has been performed, many studies have suggested that micronutrients such as sulfur amino acids, vitamin E, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids in combination with an adequately nutritious diet may help reduce inflammation.
