When dealing with boosting immune system to help suppress HPV, besides the vaccine, what vitamins can I take that will be most beneficial. ?

None but: If there is one vitamin which boosts the skin's defense system, it would be vitamin D3 which acts on the skin's keratinocytes to produce defense substances against infection. HPV will need far more potent defensive action than the vitamin can provide. See your GYN before the problem spread further or to others. Besides HPV has been linked to cervical cancer. ...Read more

Healthy diet, working out, vitamin supplements & no sex now. Will this help boost my immune system to fight and stop HPV infections (CIN)? Thanks

Healthy diet, working out, vitamin supplements & no sex now. Will this help boost my immune system to fight and stop HPV infections (CIN)? Thanks

No: One does not want to just "boost" an immune system. Bad things happen when one's immune response is too little (can get infections, and die from serious ones). Bad things happen when one's immune response is too much (can get auto-immune disorders, where one's own immune system attacks oneself). Life is about balance. Exercise, a healthy diet, and approved supplements are fine, but don't stop HPV. ...Read more

What are some vitamins i can take to boost my immune system?

No sure way.: Staying in good physical shape with regular exercises (not extreme exercises) and a healthy diet may be helpful. Make sure your plasma vitamin d3 level is optimal since vitamin d3 has been shown to be an important immune regulator.

Is it ok to take multi-vitamin, b-complex, vitamin A, calcium, and fish oil together? Will it help to boost my immune system?

Is it ok to take multi-vitamin, b-complex, vitamin A, calcium, and fish oil together? Will it help to boost my immune system?

Some advice: If you take a multivitamin you do not have to take b complex or vitamin A. It's actually unhealthy to take too much vitamin A. Fish oil in proper doses is antiinflammatory and does affect blood lipids, but has not been shown to reduce heart attacks. None "boosts" the immune system. ...Read more
