Our HPV Immunity Smoothie
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a very common infection; 75-80% women (and men) get it at some stage in life. It usually produces no symptoms and many women will not even know that they have had the infection. For some women the infection may linger and cause abnormal smears but most are able to shake it off through their immunity.
Because the immune system plays such an important role in helping rid the body of HPV, nutritional strategies focus on supporting immunity. Laura Southern our nutritional therapist has created an HPV smoothie packed with antioxidants, folate and vitamin E, all essential for immune support and shown to be protective against HPV.
