Commentary on key ingredients:


What are some of the most important ingredients in K-PAX Immune Support Formula?

The highly potent antioxidants found in K-PAX Immune Formula (and not found in most other multivitamins) are especially important in producing its observed benefits.  Their functions are as follows:

a. Acetyl-L-Carnitine

This nutrient is the primary ingredient that increases cellular energy production at the mitochondrial level.  It specifically increases the flow of free fatty acids into the mitochondria which directly boosts energy production.

It has also been shown to be of significant benefit to people with nervous system disorders such as peripheral neuropathy and Alzheimer's disease by improving nerve cell conduction.

b. Alpha Lipoic Acid

This nutrient is believed to be one of the cell's most important and potent antioxidants.  It works to help detoxify free radicals that are generated when the cell is under stress (from both HIV infection and antiviral medications).

This nutrient has also been shown to improve symptoms of peripheral neuropathy in patients with diabetes.

c. N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)

Studies performed at Stanford University have shown that HIV(+) individuals are deficient in NAC and that when this potent antioxidant is supplemented, there is a significant decrease in mortality from HIV infection.  NAC also helps to thin mucous and keep the lungs and nasal passages free of infection.

d. L-Glutamine

This amino acid provides an important energy source for intestinal and muscle cells.  People with HIV infection need as much support of their GI system as possible to help counteract the effects of antiviral medications and the presence of unhealthy organisms that often grow in digestive systems of people who frequently use antibiotics.

Personally, I do believe in supplementation. I take a very long list but won't list them all yet today due to time constraint but will in time.
I started to have inflamed reddened and peeling skin on my face for the past months and researched on what can help. I finally discovered and started taking 1000mg of Citrus Bioflavonoids Complex 1000 daily and it relieved the condtion. Every once in a while I skip this supplement for a few days and my skin acts up again. There are other conditions too which I'm observing on how my body reacts to different types of supplements. It's a slow process but somebody's got to do it. It's our own health we are talking about.

Perhaps some supplements work and others don't, but in life, nothing is absolute. We do our best to find out what works for some and not for others as well. Obviously it will be foolish and unrealistic to abandon whole foods and spend on just supplementation. Many factors determine the efficacy of health. If one excessively abuses smokes, drinks, substances and fatigue levels, no amount of good food, whole or supplemented will do any good. That is basic common sense. So it's pretty clear certain basic health rules must apply.

Good health as usual everyone. ;)
