HIV and bodybuilding supplements

  1. HIV and bodybuilding supplements


    Just curious as I know AAS is immuno-suppressive, are a lot of these supplements the same when it comes to HIV? Like ANIMAL STAK or GHenerate or the SterolComplex by USP labs?


  2. I seriously doubt it. Of course AAS/PH reak havoc on your immune system. as far as pre-workouts, you should be able to tell quickly whether or not it's causing issues. I have a damaged lymphatic system in my right leg which causes occasional staph infections when my caffiene levels are too high and I don't spend enough time elevating my leg. I can't imagine how bad it would be with HIV.

    I am curious about this. everything has to be questioned for HIV patients.

  3. Red Line DEFINITELY has a negative effect on me. The ANIMAL M-STAK has about 200mg of caffeine anhydrous in it plus the Red Line definitely makes me feel it I have an appointment with a doctor trained in this area of medical expertise, and I will keep anyone that has an interest in the subject posted =)

    Not all AAS are immuno-suppressive or modulate it in a negative fashion. There are some that have been shown to enhance certain aspects of the dedicated humoral and cell-mediated aspects; primarily cell-mediated, though.

    The immune system is so unbelieveably dynamic I could spend a week just talking about the basic functions at a minimum. I absolutely would recommend anyone diagnosed with HIV to consult with their collaborative physician care network before adding anything into their daily supplement regimen. There certainly are products/ingredients that can affect the actions of prescribed antiretrovirals, protease inhibitors, etc on many different levels of absorption, metabolism, and efficiacy.

    Which leads me to a dynamic product formulation I've had in the back of my mind for a while......maybe you'll see it from Athletix in the near future. It would be a welcome addition to many supplement regimes/cycles.

    I've become a business partner with another individual forming the company "Athletix Sports." We're both medical professionals building this company from the ground up right now. We have a LOT of great ideas and formulations in mind for the future. Both of us have quite a bit of experience in the industry as well. Our goal is to do everything right with this company that the industry typically does wrong. We're very consumer orientated and will keep our products at the best possible price for effective and dynamic formulations.

    This was something that kinda fell in my lap after I decided to leave PP. No hard feelings though; I still maintain a good relationship with all those guys.

    Anytime, buddy. I actually plan to have some type of thread dedicated to explaining this effect of AAS of immune function and potential modulation. I think it would be a great read for all.

    I will link you to it when I do.

  11. Anyone looking for immune support should check out "Extreme Immunity" http://www.extremeimmunity.com/immunolin

    I've gone through a one month supply of this and although I can't vouch for sickness prevention I CAN vouch for the fact that it has all but cured my IBS which I have been dealing with for years. The results were within a few days of starting to take the product. Also, since your gut/ GI are sort of the "portal" to the outside world, it makes sense that improving gut health in turn improves immunity.

    Good deal, man, good luck as well. Perhaps I can carry a few products in on my website in the near future.
