Coconut Oil Studies Effects on HIV

Oct 20, 2010


I'm curious as to what your opinions are of the studies on Coconut Oil with the link I've posted below, either as an adjunct to HAART, or a stand alone benefit for those who are on HAART therapy, experiencing either resistance or treatment complications, and or failure from being on HAART therapy.

Thank you kindly for your thoughts on the subject.

Response from Dr. Young


From my read of this very limited study (and as best I can research, never publicly presented data), there's little support for any activity of coconut oil in treating HIV.
