Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are anti-inflammatory. They produce the anti-inflammatory cytokines TGF-β and IL-10. They suppress effector Th1, Th2, and Th17.

Dietary and environmental factors[edit | edit source]

Vitamin D improves regulatory T cell function in healthy adults[1] and in patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis,[2] suggesting that it may play a role in both preventing and ameliorating autoimmune disease.

Various species of probiotics have been shown to increased FoxP3 expression in animal models.[3]

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome[edit | edit source]

Tregs are elevated in CFS.[4]
