T Cell Count

T-lymphocytes are a subset of white blood cells that mediate active immunity, and their reduction with immunosuppressants precedes an increased risk of getting sick. Conversely, elevating T-cells is thought to support the immune system (but may aggravate autoimmune disorders).

Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect t cell count.
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 more evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Supplement 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 - High See all 4 studies
Although there is some evidence to suggest an immunosuppressive effect on T cells, most evidence suggest no significant effect. When the immunosuppresion does occur, it is due to the EPA content
grade-c - - See study
In otherwise healthy individuals, colostrum does not alter overall levels of T cells relative to baseline or control proteins.
grade-c - - See study
There do not appear to be any significant influence on the overall count of T Lymphocytes (collectively referring to Th1 and Th2 cells) with hesperidin supplementation.
