I came accross a traditional Medicin (food supplement rather) and people are using it in fighting HIV AIDS. How do you see this product?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

While there are some who have claimed activity of this fungal extract in persons with HIV, there are no scientific publications on the subject of cordyceps and HIV. I would be very suspect of the use of any untested (for safety or effectiveness) products for any reason.


how to stop taking drugs?
Confused ?
