According to latest reports by the UNAIDS, the number of people living in the United States with HIV/ AIDS is about a million whereas the figures worldwide hit an astronomical 34 million.
As a disease that even till this very day that does not have a cure, there is no doubt that the scientific community continues to pour several hours of research into finding a cure for this disease.
Yet UC Berkeley scientists have made a breakthrough, in discovering the compound known as Diindolylmethane, and in being able to extract it from the Brassica family of vegetables, this compound is now being considered to be the answer to the world’s growing problem with AIDS among other viral diseases for which there is no cure.
What makes this compound (otherwise known as DIM) so unique?
According to researchers, this compound is the only one to demonstrate anti-cancer properties apart from also being able to boost the immune system as well to a variety of other diseases as well.
So, while there are clinical trials being conducted separately for several bacterial and viral diseases, among which cancer and AIDS are at the top of the list, its immune enhancing properties have also been utilized by offering it to the public as an immune system booster supplement.
And for the last few years, since its release in 2007, it has been received very well by patients and doctors alike as it has gained the reputation of being one of the best DIM supplements in the market today.
And while AIDS patients continue to hope for a cure, the clinical trials that are being conducted might just be the answer to the problem that they have been waiting for.
