Scientific Information on Interferon Gamma


Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect interferon gamma
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The mo re evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Notes
grade-b Vitamin E
Minor
- See all 3 studies
IFNγ is increased when vitamin E is taken alongside a vaccination, and decrease in the elderly (alongside improvements in immunity) with no significant changes if neither of the above contexts are considered.
grade-c Garlic Minor - See study
Alongside the increase in immune cell activity in otherwise healthy persons is an increase in IFN-y concentrations
grade-c Colostrum - - See study
IFN-y does not appear to be influenced with supplementation of colostrum relative to control proteins (whey).
grade-d Vitamin C - - See study
No apparent difference compared with placebo in response to ultramarathon running.

All comparative evidence is now gathered in our ​A-to-Z Supplement Reference.
