According to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), a person with HIV's immune system may have to work harder to combat infections, which demands more energy. As a result, they may need extra nourishment. In this post, we will look at the three healthiest meals for those living with HIV/AIDS.
1. Vegetables and fruits
HIV-positive individuals need additional vitamins and minerals to aid in the repair and healing of damaged cells. Consume meals rich in these vitamins and minerals to help enhance your immune system. Orange or red vegetables and fruit, whole eggs, and milk are high in vitamin A and beta-carotene.
Protein is essential for HIV patients to consume since it is required for cell formation, repair, and maintenance. It is also involved in the immunological system. Protein supplementation has also been shown to be safe for HIV patients. However, some individuals who are lactose intolerant may get diarrhea or bloating if they take more than 40 grams of milk protein each day.
3. Healthy fluids.
When you have HIV, it is critical to drink enough of fluids. Fluids deliver nutrients throughout your body. When you have HIV, you should not only consume healthy foods, but you need also drink enough of fluids. A person living with HIV or AIDS who has compromised immunity may also consider boiling and drinking solely boiled water.
