Introduction

The nutrition that goes into your mouth, from both food and nutrient supplements, can have a powerful impact for those wishing to live long and well with HIV. By improving your nutrition, you can help your body fight HIV while at the same time improving your quality of life, whether it's eliminating symptoms, improving your energy level, or increasing your overall feelings of well-being.

The fundamental reason that nutrients can have such powerful effects is simple. Nutrients provide the building blocks for both the body's physical structure—its cells, tissues, and organs—and its function, including its immune response and all other aspects of its daily functioning. That would be important for anyone, but for someone living with HIV, it's particularly crucial.
