Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect vaccine augmentation.
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-c Minor Moderate See 2 studies
Tenuous evidence for an increase in vaccine efficacy, as while the one study assessing antibody titres failed to find any influence (suggesting no benefit) there does appear to be a reliable increase in the secretion of IgA and IgG in response to the vaccine.
grade-c Minor - See study
Has been noted to increase the antibody response to vaccinations when taken prior
grade-c Minor Very High See 2 studies
There appears to be an increased antibody response to vaccinations in otherwise healthy persons who supplement with a low dose of vitamin E relative to those receiving placebo with their vaccination; this applies to both youth and the elderly.
