First of its kind study to prove out the benefits of
selenium supplementation.... question is, what took them so long...


http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/content/en/int/article.jsp ;jsessionid=N31GELV0AUPT0CQUC4YFAFYKCQL00UNE?relativePath=/content/en/newswire/current/newswire_2007_03_01_2.htm&indx=8&description=&AdLocation=ticker&title=Healthnotes+Newswire%3A+Selenium+Suppresses+HIV%22


This study is the first of its kind to demonstrate that daily supplementation with selenium elevates the blood selenium levels and suppresses the progression of HIV-1 viral load, Dr. Hurwitz concluded. Given the challenges of using conventional drugs to achieve and maintain virus suppression in HIV-spectrum disease, these results are very encouraging for selenium as a safe and inexpensive adjunct to conventional therapy.

1. Good news.
But it should be noted that this is NOT to take the place of antiviral therapy.
