I was reading about Viusid as an alternative to those not on HAART. I am confused about its efficacy with HIV, since I looked into its contents, it seemed fairly generic supplement. My doctor recommended Viusid saches. But the price seems overtly steep for multimineral ....I also read that overt immunostimulation is not good for macrophages in HIV pos people...I asked my docotr about this...she did not respond (she has Ph.D in virology)... Any suggestions.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Viusid has not been proven to work by studies not sponsored by its manufacturer in India. I would not trust any supplement company that makes claims based on data generated by them.
