An HIV-infected adult requires 10 to 15 percent more energy per day and approximately 50 to percent more protein [ 65 , 66 ]. Antioxidant micronutrients and immune responses. In the elderly, impaired immunity can be enhanced by modest amounts of a combination of micronutrients. Conclusion The countless and intricate relationships between nutritional status, specific nutrients, and the immune system is an exciting and ongoing area of biomedical research. Necropsy studies on malnourished patients have also shown profound depletion of the thymolymphatic system and severe depression of cell-mediated immunity.
