Fermented Papaya

Apr 5, 2012

Hello dr I've seen some advs about Fermented Papaya (ImmunAge). Do u have any scientific proof that it works to prevent inflammation and improve the way we fight the virus? I don't trust these commercial even if they use big names as scientist sponsors. Would u prescribe it or u think is a waste of money and time?

Thanks for what u do!

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

I'm not convinced and wouldn't prescribe or recommend this product.
