The smoothie for Reduced risk and Treatment of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)
Yield: 2 serving (about 8 ounce each)
1 cup Tomato
1/2 cup Brazil nut
1 cup green tea drink (Make from 4 grams of green tea, a slice of ginger and a cup of hot water lipped for 5 minute. Set aside for cooling to room temperature)
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree about 1 minute
2. Blend on high speed about 1 minute or until the mixture is thick and the ice is well crushed. Add more green tea drink if needed
3. Serve immediately
The dream of finding the natural ingredient for prevention and treatment of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), without adverse effects in replacement of conventional medication has not been abated. Some ingredients have to discard because of not achieving the same potent results in human trials.
Scientist community may have found the smoothie(combined ingredients of garlic, olive and coconut oils) with potential and therapeutic value for reduced risk and treatment of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)without adverse effects.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) of which can lead to the progression of weakened immune system casues of infectous diseases and cancers. According to the studies, patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are asscoiated to low levels of vitamin A and selenium(1).
Selenium, a chemical element with symbol Se and antioxidant found in Brazil nut, plays an important role in protection of cell against significant impairments of antioxidative defenses induced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (2).
Dr. Delmas-Beauvieux MC and colleagues at the Université Bordeaux II, suggested, selenium supplementation could be of great interest in protecting cells against oxidative stress and glutathione peroxidase (GPX), and glutathione (GSH) are important in expression of natural enzymatic defense system in detoxifying hydrogen peroxide(3).
Vitamin A, a bi-polar molecule formed by bonds between carbon and hydrogen, is a fat soluble vitamin converted from beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Accoridng to the The University of Maryland School of Medicine, deficiency of vitamin A in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has been associated with more progressive HIV disease(4).
Dr. Hamza A and Dr. Zhan CG. said, "(-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) from green tea is an inhibitor blocking gp120-CD4 binding" by blocking the initial step of HIV-1 entry into the cells"(7).
In support of above blocking, Dr. Williamson MP and colleagues at the University of Sheffield suggested, green tea Epigallocatechin gallate has a potential use as adjunctive therapy in HIV-1 infection(8) through its binding of HIV-1 glycoprotein (gp) 120 to the CD4 molecule on T cells.
People who are at increased risk of Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) /Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) due to family history, weaken immunity,....should drink at least one cup or more daily. People with hHuman immunodeficiency virus (HIV) /Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) may drink as much as they can, depending to the digestive toleration.
