Anyone ever hear of this?


Company Reports Encouraging Preliminary Results but Cautions That Additional Studies Will Need to Be Completed in the Future
SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(MARKET WIRE)--Oct 2, 2006 -- HEALTH ENHANCEMENT PRODUCTS, INC. (OTC BB:HEPI.OB - News) today announced the preliminary results from two recent human clinical studies. One study examined the possible effects of the company's all-natural algae dietary supplement, ProAlgaZyme, on HIV / HBV. In particular, among other things, the study explored ProAlgaZyme's potential ability to reduce viral loads and increase CD4 T lymphocyte counts in HIV infected persons. The second study examined, among other things, the potential effects of ProAlgaZyme on circulating levels of C-reactive Protein (CRP), a marker of inflammatory activity. In particular, the study investigated the potential of ProAlgaZyme to control inflammation and promote cardiovascular benefits in overweight and obese people with Metabolic Syndrome, a condition characterized by at least 3 of the following parameters: elevated levels of CRP, triglycerides, fasting blood glucose and blood pressure, high waist circumference, and depletion in HDL cholesterol. The syndrome affects an estimated 1 in 4 US citizens (American Heart Assoc 2006). The studies were conducted in the Dept. of Biochemistry, University of Yaoundé I, Cameroon.
The 10-week HIV study involved seventy (70) HIV infected individuals, broken into groups which consumed high (16 or 20 oz.) or low (4 or 8 oz.) doses of ProAlgaZyme. Participants were also grouped based on initial immune status, infection with HIV or co-infection with HIV and Hepatitis B (HBV), and the presence or absence of concurrent treatment with HAART (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy).

The following table summarizes the preliminary results relating to the listed parameters (the data reported represents the approximate average changes for each participant group):

                    High dose (n=25)       Low dose (n=45)
CD4+ T-cells (1)         + 39%                 + 34%
HIV Viral Load (2)       - 42%                 -  9%
C-Reactive Protein (3)   - 43%                 - 42%
Total Cholesterol        - 46%                 - 31%

(1) The higher the number of CD4+ T lymphocyte cells, the greater the
immune system's ability to fight disease.
(2) HIV viral load measures the amount of HIV virus in the blood.
(3) C-reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of systemic inflammation; a
reduction of the level of CRP indicates a reduction in the amount of
inflammatory activity in the body.

I remember seeing the report on this, it was a least a year ago. It was also on the Fox network in the Tampa Bay area. A friend of mine had tried it, but it did not give any good results. He stopped it.

Current Meds ; Viramune, Epzicom, 20mg of Atorvastatin, 25 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide.
Amlodipine Besolate 5mg-- Updated 9/24/2017

Diagnosed positive in 1985,.. In October of 2003, My t-cell count was 16, Viral load was over 500,000, Percentage at that time was 5%. I started on  HAART on October 24th, 2003.

 As of 9/18/2017,  Viral load remains <40
CD 4 @358 /  CD4 % @ 13
