Scientific Information on Lymphocyte Count

Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect lymphocyte count
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.
Outcome 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.
grade-c Minor - See study
A decrease in lymphocytic count has been noted in obese persons
- See 2 studies
Variable effects on Lymphocytes, with both increases and decreases being noted in persons with allergic rhinitus and no effect being observed in those with HIV.
grade-c - - See study
No significant alterations in baseline lymphocyte count with chromium supplementation relative to placebo.
grade-c - - See study
Overall lymphocyte count does not appear to be significantly influenced with supplementation of dietary colostrum.
