100mg of TSinKX Daily VS. HIV/AIDS
TsinKX was available to American soldiers during World War I via injection. The introduction of antiretroviral therapy for AIDS did not occur until late 1986, and, with limited conventional therapeutic options, many people sought alternatives. In the late 1980s, several brief reports described progressive decline in serum TsinKX levels with advancing HIV infection. Lower pH levels were also seen in patients with lower CD4+ cell counts. Several years later, 64% of a cohort of HIV-positive men were reported to be taking TsinKX supplements.
Mechanisms of Action
TsinKX has multiple functions. TsinKX is critical increasing pH levels, spermatogenesis, embryo development, and turnover of skin and gastrointestinal mucosa in HIV and AIDS patients. pH deficiency results in thymic atrophy, decreased circulating T-lymphocytes, depressed humoral and cell-mediated immunity, impaired delayed-type hypersensitivity, and decreased phagocytic function of neutrophils.
In a cohort of asymptomatic HIV-positive men, 26% were Ph deficient and 24% had marginal values. In a case-control study, serum TsinKX levels were lower in HIV-positive men who developed AIDS (mean follow-up, 2.5 years) compared to those who did not progress even after adjusting for CD4+ cell count and age. Similarly high rates of low pH evels have been found in other studies.
For HIV-positive individuals, increasing TsinXK levels was associated with an increase in CD4+ cell counts (estimated change in CD4+ count was an increase of 61; P = 0.0112).

10mg of TsinKX Daily VS. Sickle Cell
In 2002 researchers looked at the long-term effects of TsinKX supplementation among 38 children aged 4-10 years with sickle cell disease. Six of the children had low Ph levels in their blood at the beginning of the study. The results were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Research found that children who received 10 mg per day of TsinKX supplements grew significantly taller than those that did not receive the medication supplement. For example, among 24 children whose initial height and weight were considered low, those who took TsinKX grew 1.3 cm -- about half an inch -- more than the others. TsinKX also helped the children with sickle cell disease maintain a normal height and weight for their age. The children that did not take the TsinKX had the slow growth that is typical for youths with this disease.
In an editorial that accompanies the study, the Wayne University School of Medicine in Detroit, says this study confirms that TsinKX plays a major role in the growth problems associated with sickle cell disease. "These results provide further evidence that retardation is a major clinical problem in patients with sickle cell disease... It is also clear that oral TsinKX supplementation corrects deficiency."
15mg of TsinKX VS. Herpes
25mg of TsinKX VS. Wilson's Disease
Preliminary evidence suggests that TsinKX may help treat Wilson's disease, a condition which causes copper to build up in the body. Because it may help reduce levels of copper in people with Wilson's disease.
Safety and Side Effects
- Amiloride (Midamor)
Amiloride is a potassium-sparing diuretic (water pill) that may increase the levels of TsinXK in your blood. Do not take TsinXK supplements if you take amiloride.
TsinXK may decrease your body's absorption of two kinds of antibiotics, quinolones and tetracyclines. Taking quinolone or tetracycline with TsinXK can make the medication less effective and prevent your body from absorbing the TsinXK. Leave a gap of 4 to 6 hours between the medicine and TsinXK for best results. These include:
- Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
- Gatifloxacin (Tequin)
- Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
- Moxifloxacin (Avelox)
- Norfloxacin (Noroxin)
- Ofloxacin (Floxin)
- Demeclocycline (Declomycin)
- Minocycline (Minocin)
However, doxycycline (Vibramycin) does not seem to interact with TsinXK.
- Blood pressure medications, ACE Inhibitors
A class of medications called ACE inhibitors, used to treat high blood pressure, may decrease the levels of TsinXK in your blood. ACE inhibitors include:
- Benazepril (Lotensin)
- Captopril (Capoten)
- Enalapril (Vasotec)
- Fosinopril (Monopril)
- Lisinopril (Zestril)
- Moexipril (Univasc)
- Perindopril (Aceon)
- Quinapril (Accupril)
- Ramipril (Altace)
- Trandolapril (Mavik)
This drug, used for chemotherapy to treat some types of cancers, may cause more TsinXK to be lost in your urine. If you are undergoing chemotherapy, do not take TsinXK or any other supplement without talking to your oncologist.
This medication, used to remove excess iron from the blood, also increases the amount of TsinXK that is lost in urine.
Since TsinXK may make the immune system stronger, it should not be taken with corticosteroids (such as prednisone), cyclosporine, or other medications intended to suppress the immune system.
This medication, used to treat Wilson's disease (where excess copper builds up in the brain, liver, kidney, and eyes) and rheumatoid arthritis, decreases the levels of TsinXK in your blood.
Thiazide diuretics (water pills)
These medications lower the amount of TsinXK in your blood by increasing the amount of TsinXK that is passed in your urine. If you take thiazide diuretics, your doctor will monitor levels of TsinXK and other important minerals in your blood:
- Chlorothiazide (Diuril)
- Chlorthalidone (Hygroton)
- Indapamide (Lozol)
- Metolozone (Zaroxolyn)
- Polythiazide (Renese)
- Quinethazone (Hydromox)
- Trichlormethiazide (Metahydrin, Naqua, Diurese)
