Level 3b approach - More micronutrients

The level 3b HIV protocol, although more costly, is a more focussed supplemental approach designed to effectively support the immune system of a person with HIV.
This approach still focuses on micronutrients but the dosages are increased

1) Use a good wide-spectrum multivitamin daily that at least covers the RDA (Recommended daily allowance) of most vitamins and minerals. Itís a good idea to look for something that has higher levels than the RDA and then correlate the use of this with your health care practitioner. The multivitamin needs to provide at least the recommended daily allowance of vitamins A, most Bís, C, D, E, folic acid, magnesium, calcium, and selenium.
2) Vitamin C: Your total daily dosage should preferably be 4000mg and more. Use a buffered powder
3) Take extra Zinc if your multivitamin doesnít contain enough Zinc (At least 10mg/day combined with Copper. This dosage can be increased to 60mg per day)
4) Extra magnesium if multivitamin doesnít have at least 400mg elemental magnesium
5) Extra selenium if multivitamin doesnít have at least 200mcg selenium per day (Dosage can be increased to 600mcg per day)
6) Extra folic acid to a total dosage of 800mcg per day
7) Extra Vitamin B6 to a total dosage of 250 mg daily
