Selenium May Slow March Of AIDS
These things actually reminded me of something I read on Barry Groves' site years ago:
A Cheap Way to Prevent AIDS and Bird Flu
Selenium is present in a wide variety of foods and it can also be obtained in supplements. The best source of natural selenium is liver and other organ meats, particularly from grass-fed animals, although it does depend on how much selenium is in the soil. Next come fish and shellfish, followed by muscle meats. The soil most likely to have a high selenium content is one that is rich in organic matter, and no pesticides. Organic meats are most likely to be the best.
Tuna and eggs are also very good suppliers of selenium and they also contain sulphur, which helps the absorption and utilisation of selenium.
Selenium is also available in plants, but in much smaller quantities and it is much less available than that from animal sources. However, depending again on the levels of selenium in the soil where plants are grown, grains, mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli, onions and tomatoes do contain some selenium.
If selenium is taken in supplements, you should avoid taking more than 200 mcg per day as this mineral can be toxic in overdose.
The best source of the three amino acids mentioned has to be meat, although grains may help to boost tryptophan levels.
The reason cysteine is included may be because it contains sulphur which, as was mentioned above, increases the effectiveness of the selenium. The reason for other two is unclear.
Anti-viral fatty acids
Lastly, short-chain fatty acids having four to six carbon atoms are also antiviral. These fats are always saturated. Four-carbon butyric acid is found mostly in butterfat from cows, and six-carbon capric acid is found mostly in butterfat from goats. Butter, cream and full-fat cheeses are the best sources.
Liver, meat, eggs, butter....sounds good
