We focus on two specific areas.

  • Raw Materials: Unlike other supplement companies, the ingredients that go into our supplements are not chosen based on cost. Instead they are chosen based on purity (to ensure contaminants such as microbes and heavy metals comply with regulatory and GMPs requirements), potency, and usage in successful scientific research.
  • Validation of the Efficacy of Ingredients by Scientific Research: We use ingredients and dosages that accurately replicate the most successful results obtained in scientific studies for maximum efficacy.

There is no finite time period to take the product. Visit the product details page for more information.

You should always consult your physician prior to taking any supplements when you are pregnant or nursing.

Yes. All active ingredients from patented, scientifically validated raw materials as well as final, finished products are verified using advanced analytical methods such as HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography), MS (mass spectrometry), etc., to ensure each and every product accurately meets label claims in strict compliance with our demanding product specifications.

For medication/supplement interactions we know about, we note them on the product label and our website. However, there is always a possibility that you could have an individual reaction taking a particular medication and a particular nutritional supplement at the same time. Therefore, we always advise that you consult with a qualified health-care practitioner – preferably the one who prescribed or recommended your medication – before you begin taking a nutritional supplement at the same time.

Curcumin is a bright yellow phytochemical produced by several species of the Curcuma genus, most notably Curcuma longa (also referred to as turmeric). Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric root. Of the curcuminoids in turmeric root, curcumin comprises about 80%, followed by desmethoxycurcumin (~15%) and bisdemethoxycurcumin (~5%). Curcumin is marketed as a dietary supplement, food flavoring, food coloring, and cosmetics ingredient.

It means how much of a consumed supplement makes its way into the bloodstream. Chance of effectiveness is proportional to higher bioavailablity.

Turmeric as a dietary supplement refers to the root of the Curcuma longa plant. About 3% of the root contains curcuminoids; a class of bioactive compounds in turmeric. Dietary supplements contain either turmeric, where the root has been ground to a powder, or curcumin, which has been extracted in purified form from the turmeric. Curcumin-based dietary supplements are often referred to as ‘turmeric extract.

While curcumin is quickly being recognized as a powerful phytonutrient for health, typical commercial curcumin products are limited in their effectiveness. Curcumin is a fat-soluble molecule that is rapidly metabolized by our body (liver and intestine), which severely limits its therapeutic use.

With our novel technology we are able to solubilize curcumin and make it much more bioavailable to the human body in the highest quality form with a reduced dose.  Thus, a higher percentage of Curcumin is used by the cells without being wasted in the elimination process, which means greater efficacy and your satisfaction with our product.

Unfortunately, we are not allowed to give out any medical advice. Since all the ingredients used for CD4 Shield based on natural extracts, CD4 Shield is quite safe to take. However, persons with individual allergies and who is on prescription medication should consult with their physician before taking supplements.
